Hello! I haven't used my mirror image stamp in ages, so I pulled it out this weekend to make this swan card, using images from Warm With Love.
I stamped the swan once and colored with Copic markers, beginning with C5.
For the beak, I used E53.
To make the second swan, I stamped the image on my mirror image stamp, then stamped that onto my white card stock.
Tip: Because the mirror image stamp is a solid flat surface, you may have difficulty getting a complete image. I've found that leaving the stamp upside down on my table, placing the card stock on top and gently rubbing the surface, provides a better impression. Just be careful not to shift the paper as you rub.
Then I colored the reversed image the same way as the first, staring with C5.
Then added C3. (sorry I missed the C1 photo). After coloring, I cut out both swan images.
I cut a piece of Pure Luxury White card stock to 5 by 3 1/2 inches and sponged Memento Summer Sky ink.
I sponged Memento Lulu Lavender along the top.
Sponged Paris Dusk.
Then sponged Memento London Fog.
I stamped the grass and lacy branch with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. For the lacy branch, I stamped off on scratch paper first to make a lighter impression.
I adhered the swans to the background. I hadn't left enough space for the swans between the grass so they wound up on top of the grass. To make the grass look closer, I used a marker to color in where the grass should have overlapped the swans.
I used my BV13 marker to make shadows in front of the swans.
I layered with Pure Luxury Baby Boy Blue and Black Onyx. The card base is Pure Luxury In The Navy. I used Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities on the Summer Sky layer. Finished card size: 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches.
Thanks for stopping by. Have yourself a wonderful day!
