Mermaid Blues Copic card
Subdued Sprays Background

Military Legacy using Burnished Brass Moonshadow Mist and Distress inks

This card was inspired by the stamp plate from Oxford Impressions - Heart of Dixie, the main stamped image in particular, the man's eyes - were just speaking to me :)  The stamped panel, was the first element of the card I made, everything else sort of grew around it.

What I used:

What I did:

  1. On white card, stamp main Civil war veteran image using Sepia Versafine ink.  Heat set to dry.
  2. Spray Moonshadow mist (Burnished Brass) over stamped image, making sure to leave some drips.  Use heat gun to speed drying process if desired.
  3. When fully dry, smear on some Glossy Accents and lay thin sheet of mica over top, press out any air bubbles with fingers and leave to dry, Cut mica to size once dry.
  4. Using piece of white card cut to card-front size, spray with Moonshadow Mist to cover - dry with heat gun.  To increase aged appearance, once dry, spray additional Mist over surface and let pool and run - dry with heat gun to create additional interest.  Let dry.
  5. Using applicator sponge, add Distress ink to surface of Moonshadow mist background - this will add some extra depth to colour.
  6. Using Sizzex Big Kick and Script embossing folder from Cuttlebug, place mist background into folder and emboss.  This also flattens the background.
  7. Rub Black Soot distress ink pad over raised areas of background to highlight embossing.  Attach ribbons, paper ruler and button to background and mount onto red and black card.
  8. Trim Tim Holtz Bingo paper to size and mount onto torn red and black card - use circle punch to cut hole for bingo number.
  9. Mount mica covered image onto bingo panel and attach panel to background.
  10. Finish with black photo turn and word form Collections.
