A Miracle from Above - CDS Sneak Peek


This card was made from a brand new Clear Dollar Stamps Set called Miracle from Above that will be released on Sept. 1/08. I loved making this card because I put two of the images together by masking them and then adding the paper tole layers. The baby and the mother (pregnant mother stamp) are two separate stamps and I carefully used my stamp-a-majig to make it so that the mother was holding the baby rather than resting her hand on her "baby bump".

The flowers were made using Michelle Bowely's technique, but rather than outlining the images with markers before spritzing with water, I used coloured card stock, spritzed and shaped the flowers. I waited until they dried (I'm impatient so I used my heat gun) and then sponged the edges to add a darker tinge to them :) The flowers were made with the SU 5 Petal Punch as well as the Boho Blossoms punch. They really pop off the page!
