I’m thrilled to be part of the new design team representing one of my all-time favorite craft stores: Topflight Stamps. For my first design team project, I decided to create a card using the new-to-me Carabelle-Studio stamp set called “3 Oiseaux” (3 Birds).
I printed out the sentiment: “You are the wind beneath my wings.” from my computer and then stamped out the whimsical flying bird with a heart shaped breast with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I Copic colored the bird and the surrounding swirly air/wind with the following Copic colors:
Bird: Y11, YR21, YR14, R14, B34, B37 and B39
Air: B000, B00, B01
To add a little deeper detailed coloring in the “nooks and crannies” of the air around the bird, I also used a couple of Prismacolor color pencils in Blue Mediterranee (PC1022) and Bleu Denim (PC1101). For a little magical shimmer on the bird, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella. To help the darker areas of the bird pop, I added some dotting details with a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen. Lastly I also added Ranger Glossy Accents to the bird’s eyes, beak and legs for some dimension and shine.
For a finishing touch on the CAS card, which I die cut using a WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die, I glued on a smattering of sequins topped with tiny dots of Platinum Liquid Pearls to cover the holes in the sequin centers. For added texture, shine and balance, I also added a handful of teeny tiny Platinum Liquid Pearl dots close to the sequin clusters.
The following is a process video of the coloring of this card:
