Summer Cranes

Congrats to Susan, today’s Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS277)! I chose her lovely Brayered Sympathy to case. I kept the layout but made my oval a frame instead of a layer. And I also used a brayer for my background but changed the colors and images.

The image is new from DRS Designs and I used a brayer and two rainbow pads to create my background before I stamped the cranes.  I masked the water area and used the Desert Heat ink pad on the top. This area was then masked and I used the Blue Breeze ink pad for the water.  I used a small acrylic paintbrush to apply bleach to the images to remove the color. After bleaching, I dried it quickly w/ the heat tool. The bleach has to be dry in order to use water based markers to add color back in. If the bleach isn’t dry, it will just continue to remove whatever color I try to add back in.

I die cut the largest petite oval in a piece of white cardstock and used it for the frame. The little summer sun was cut out of a larger image and colored. A few highlights were added on the water using a white gel pen. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Memorial Day!
