Elemental Moth

Hello! We are back with our second inspirational project here on the blog today.

Heather Mitchell has combined a new stamp with a best seller to create an amazing mixed media card…

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog post!

Today I’m sharing (yet another) DT make for Visible Image and today’s uses both Elemental and Glimmer of Light stamp sets.

Having just purchased all the new gorgeous Distress Oxide ink pad colours, I gathered all the neutral colours (Frayed Burlap, Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Iced Spruce) and made an inky background to which I added some gold spritzing ink for a hint of shimmer.

I love the textures you can make with the Distress Oxide ink pads… perfect for stamping over!

Once this was dry, I heat embossed the Elemental stamp in Wow!’s Metallic Copper.  If you never used heat embossing powder, it is just mesmerising to watch it melt and I particularly fond of the copper colour way as it really adds a warmth to your projects.

I’ve matted the background onto scuffed up black card to give a clean finish

To add the light bulbs, I stamped these in black Stain ink and coloured using Distress Spray Stains in Mustard and Spiced Marmalade and then added Ranger’s Glossy Accents to make them shine and give a glass effect.  Once fully dry (allow to air dry) I threaded some floristry wire through a small hole and twisted the wire to secure it’s position.  Having given the top a little twirl, I adhered them to the card using 3D foam dots (under the bulb) and a small strip of masking tape to the wire.

The sentiment is stamped using Wow!’s Ebony heat embossing powder and I love the way it lays over the Elemental stamp (lovely bit of texture!)

For the large Moth, simply heat emboss in Wow!’s Sea Foam White and fussy cut him out.  To add a slight hint of colour, I’ve used a gold spritzing ink to paint on some extra sparkle.  Once finished, secure him to the card using 3D foam dots.

And there you have it, although in hindsight I would’ve stamped the Moth a few times and layered up his wings using vellum or acetate but maybe next time!
