One last quick post on this month. I wish I could say that I was creative and made up this design on my self but sadly not. I saw a video in Benny Black Inc YouTube channel and just had to copy the idea. Sparkle N Sprinkle revealed perfect silhouette stamp sets for that: Wetlands 1 and Wetlands 2.
Images are stamped with Versamark ink to a watercolor cardstock and they are heat embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. For coloring I used different Distress Inks: Ground Espresso, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean. To make the inks inside of the 'window' to shimmer I spritzed a Perfect Pearl Mist to the craft mat and used it instead of the water. That gave a nice sheen to the distress ink colors. After all inks was dried I covered the 'window' with piece of scrap paper and stamped the leaves with Tea Dye ink to the background.
For the matting layer I took a white cardstock and colored the edges with black marker. Then I adhered 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape all around the edges and placed the colored layer in center. Rest of the tape was covered with Black Suede glitter.
To add a little more brightness to my card I used Die-Versions Loopy Lace Die to die cut a border out of Sticker Paper. Sticker paper was covered with Ocean glitter.
