I have a sweet card to share with you today featuring the latest stamp set illustrated by Aida Zamora for Mama Elephant. You Raise Me Up has the most adorable stacks of critters and sentiments that speak to the heart.
I wanted a softer look for today's design so instead of using my go to coloring medium of Copic Markers, I chose watercolors instead. I stamped a scene onto watercolor paper using a hybrid ink so the ink wouldn't smudge and then painted color on using watercolor pens and a water brush.
Next, I created layering pieces for the card. I die cut a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock using the largest die from B2B Rectangles CC and inked it up using Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks. For the frame, I die cut some Kraft colored woodgrain cardstock using the Postage Frame CC. I then inked the edges with a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks and splattered on a gold watercolor paint for added interest.
I chose a sentiment from You Raise Me Up and heat embossed it onto a piece of dark brown cardstock. I love how the white embossing pops off of the darker panel. To cut the sentiment out, I used the second smallest die from the B2B Slimline CC. I then trimmed it down to size to fit the space on the main panel.
To finish off the card, I matted it onto a panel of the same dark brown cardstock that I used for the sentiment and added a few pink clay hearts.
