Hey, good to see you have popped over to the blog. Today this is quite a simple looking card with only one piece that is dimensional. However, it used second generation stamping to create a fun and soft background for the main sentiment and stamps to sit on. These stamps are from the Dreamcatching 4 x 6 stamp set, and it has so many beautiful stamps. The two small star stamps were used in creating this soft dreamy second generation stamped background.
*For supplies featured in this post, please refer to the links at the end of the post.
Second generation stamped background Card Process Overview
Ink up the two star stamps and stamp onto your card panel. Before reloading the stamps with ink, stamp onto your card panel again. This will give a lighter, softer print compared to the first print. This is your second generation stamp. Reload the stamp with ink and repeat the process of this stamping until the background is full.
Using stencil brushes, apply ink to the middle of the card blending this out for a soft look. Stamp in Raven detail ink the feathers from the stamp set onto Alabaster card and fussy cut these out. Mat these onto the card panel with craft glue. In addition, stamp with clear embossing ink the smile sentiment from the set onto Raven black card and heat set in Alabaster embossing powder. Foam mount the sentiment above the feathers. For additional decoration, add a small thin strip of diagonal paper down the side and mat the card panel onto a black card base.
