Tiny Image – Huge Impact. Blended Seasons Card. Oh, and a little tip along the way. I am loving the Blended Seasons Limited Edition Stamp Set. It really does cover so many of your crafting needs.
I wanted to take one of the really tiny images from the set and use that as the focal point for a card and was drawn to the ears of wheat. Our family crest is an Ear of Wheat and the ring on the little finger of my left hand has that on it. This is probably why I was drawn to that image in particular. It is such a beautifully drawn image and could be symbolic of so many things. Friendship, Love, Thanksgiving, general Autumn to list but a few.
I simply stamped the tiny image on a scrap of Whisper White using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Once the ink was fully dry, I used Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Soft Suede and Ivory Blends to colour the image in. Now, the tip I have is that there actually is a difference in the final result when you layer up Blends depending on the order. For the grain, I used Soft Suede and then added Daffodil Delight, this made a different shade than the other way round. Strange, but true. Also, I used the Ivory to soften the lines of shading on the stems. Watch the video to make more sense of that waffle!!!
I mounted the stamped image on Copper Foil and then Crushed Curry, both had only the smallest border and none of it was measured, it was just done by eye and with scissors. Some Copper Thread behind that and mounted on Dimensionals, add a sentiment at the bottom of a Pumpkin Pie cardbase and a Tiny Image stands well on its own. I hope you agree it is a Tiny Image but a Huge Impact!
