I am absolutely wild about the new Nesting Bird stamp by Impression-Obsession! It’s so funky and different from my normal style that I thought it would make for a fun afternoon trying to figure out how to make it work. I decided to emboss it in white on white watercolor paper and use my Tombow Markers to make the white embossing pop. (Just so you know, Michelle at Stampers Dream is carrying the full line of Tombows now and she ships them out lickety split!)
Because I cut the image out and wanted to mount it on a dark background, I ended up cutting off much of the detail. To get the detail, back, I white embossed my dark panel which I cut with Spellbinders Labels Large, and seated the cut out image on top. I used design paper from Tiny Dancer, My Mind’s Eye, Bazzill for my main panel and the card base is 140lb Strathmore Watercolor Paper.
