Hello! It's Sara, from Much Love, Sara. I have a fun slim line card to share with you today. This card features two ink blended backgrounds, with some of the adorable critters from The Best Hugs Ever Stamp Set.
I started by stamping the critters in Black Hybrid Ink, and quickly colored them in with my Polychromos pencils. Then I die cut them out with the coordinating dies. While my die cutting machine was out, I also die cut the Slim Line Hugs from Afar Word Topper Die from black card stock. To change the layout of the die, I laid it on a strip of 8.5" card stock, with the words in the center, then left the left edge hanging off of the bottom plate, so the edge would not cut. Then I could use my trimmer to cut the rest of the strip out. I did not add a subtitle to this strip, however, wanted a small detail, so I stamped and white heat embossed the small hearts from the stamp set.
To create the backgrounds for my critters, I used the Water Coloring Scene Building Stencil, turned so the stencil was horizontal. I used a small bit of painters tape to create the "hill". Then I ink blended some Distress Oxide Inks, using my Life Changing Blender Brushes. For the icy scene, I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot. Before removing the stencil, I splattered water on the background.
