Flight of Paper

Hello, friends!

Bobbie Sue, here! I am so happy to be with you as a guest designer with Brutus Monroe.

I'm incredibly excited to share todays card with you. The stamp set I used is one of the most delicate and beautiful images I have ever worked with. As a matter of fact, this stamp set is so versatile it can be used for ANY occasion.

The card below showcases the beautiful Paper Cranes stamp set. I am just smitten with this entire stamp design! I would love to see your makes using this set.

When I first received this set I had so many thoughts of how to use these amazing cranes. I am quite happy with this layout and eager to create using this set again!

This card was so quick to make that I plan to make a few more to have in my stash.

Here are the steps in making this card:

1.I double stamped the cluster of cranes onto a beautifully colored piece of DSP cut slightly smaller than an A2 panel.

2.Then, I stamped the 4 single cranes onto a scrap piece of Canson XL watercolor paper and colored them with a Zig marker in beige. I love blending out color with a lighter version of the main color. In this case, I blended out the beige with a Zig marker in vanilla.

3.Again, I let my trusty Scan n Cut do the fussy cutting for me. (I've not the patience nor the skill to fussy cut small images.) I popped up the cut out cranes on the panel using foam squares.

4.Next, I attached the panel to an A2 card base using Brutus Monroe's mega roll of white foam tape.

5.Lastly, I stamped the Miss You sentiment (from Sharon's Script) onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and attached it using foam strips.

Long after I finished this card I decided it was missing something that would give it more life. So, I covered the peeking panel, 2 of the cranes & the sentiment and splattered gold paint. I absolutely love the finished look this gave!

Look closely and you can see the shadow I added to the cranes using a Zig marker in light gray. I love how it gives the "in flight" effect.

I am so happy to have had the opportunity to spend this day with you on the Brutus Monroe blog! I would love to hear your thoughts on this card and stamp set. Please, comment below. I read each comment with a smile.

I would truly love to connect with you! You can find me on Facebook here, Instagram here and my blog here.

See you again soon, friends!

Be blessed,

Bobbie Sue https://www.two38creations.com/2019/09/guest-designer-with-brutus-monroe-paper.html
