Tim Holtz Book Covers Stamps
I used Colorbox Pigment Ink in Rosebud to stamp the image. I just love the richness of pigment inks. I also used this ink to color the border of my smaller doily. Once the doily was dry, I attached it to the center of my large white doily and attached both to the top, center of my card.
I used a beautiful piece of blue lace from Webster’s Pages. I cut a small piece and placed it at the bottom of my doilies. I used my new Parisian Accents dies from Spellbinders to create a label and decorative pieces for my card. I inked the edges of the label and placed it in the center of the doilies. When I first received the inspiration photo I knew what image I would use as my focal point. I knew I wanted a bird and I remembered that Graphic 45 has a beautiful collection called “Once Upon a Springtime” which contains the sweetest image of a baby riding a bird. I detail cut the image and attached it to the center of my label using foam squares.
What would a card be without Melissa Frances’ resin pieces? I placed one of her swags under my focal point. I used stickles to give the swag a bit of sparkle. My Colorbox Pigment Ink in Rosebud got a lot of use during this project. I used it again to stamp and emboss my sentiment. I added a white decorative die cut flourish to each side of the sentiment to finish my card.
