You can’t go wrong with Magnolia stamp, even with Chicken Tilda here! No matter how it is designed or what they are dressed in, Tilda is indeed a very adorable character.
In my last post, I shared about stamping with Versafine and embossing with clear embossing powder on this hammered textured card stock. I did the same for Chicken Tilda here and as you can see, none of the black pigment ink actually bleed through the coloring when Copic markers were used.
So, I just want to share about the importance of a good quality card base to use, where you can enjoy the process of embossing the image without worrying about pigment ink seeping in to the coloring with markers.
I did the background for this piece, having little Chicken Tilda stand on top of the hill!
This is how I mask my stamped image for this kind of project where background is done using blending technique of distress ink.
I use post-it tag and trim it out with craft scissors. I really like this method instead of using a masking paper because I can keep the post-it tag for future use. Trimming all these intricate lines of Magnolia stamp is really no joke so I’d rather have a masking paper (in this case, cut out Post-it) handy for the next project.
If the post-it starts losing it’s tag, you can simply use Tombow re-positionable tape to add some adhesive to the pack of the image.
So, after stamping and embossing Chicken Tilda, I placed the post-it tag over the image and did all the blending of the clouds and the hill top.
I then stamped some extra flowers using Memento Dye Ink on the hill top to add a little more design to the overall card.
I hope you like this card as well as the little tricks I shared here with the use of post-it tag.
Till then, I hope you have a great week ahead and stay tuned to more of my cards!
