Create a whimsical, three-dimensional card with the coordinating colors of Adirondack Dye Inks.
By Michelle Harmazinski
(1) Stamp out scenic stamp twice on Gloss Paper using Jet Black Archival Ink. Allow to dry completely.
(2) On the first stamping, color in the background area with a Cut-n-Dry Nib using Pink Sherbet Adirondack Ink. On the same stamping, color in the water lilies with a Cut-n-Dry Nib using Raspberry Adirondack Ink. Trim design along edge using a ruler and an exacto knife.
(3) Measure and cut a piece of black cardstock that is ¼” larger than your stamped image on all sides. Measure and cut a piece of raspberry-colored cardstock that is 1” larger than your stamped image on all sides. Mount colored stamping onto black cardstock with glue stick. Then mount to raspberry-colored cardstock with glue stick.
(4) On the second stamping, color in the dragonflies using Wild Plum Adirondack Ink. You can use Cut-n-Dry Nibs, or just use the ink direct to paper, since the dragonflies will be cut out. Cut out with an exacto knife. Apply Pop It Shape squares to the back of each dragonfly, in several places. You may need to cut the squares a little smaller to fit in some areas. Apply dragonflies to their appropriate section of the first stamping.
