This week we have been showcasing the products from the Botanical Gazette Suite! I decided I would use the Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper and the Nature Walk stamp set for my card.
I wish you could see the bird in person. It is super cool, it's almost holographic. I stamped it first with Black Staz On ink and then colored it in with a blender pen and a few markers. Then I added some Moonlight Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink. Once that was dry I stamped the bird again using Early Espresso Ink. I lined up the bird exactly on top of the first image with my Stamp-a-ma-jig. It's the Smooch that makes it so cool looking. I also added more Smooch Accent Paint and Basic Pearls to the flowers.
