Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko and Magenta ink hop {Day 2}

Magenta_badge 
Hello and  Welcome to the day 2 of a week full of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Magenta Rubber Stamps! Both companies are excited to share with you their products, from the latest inks from IMAGINE Crafts to the newest Fall and Holiday stamp releases from Magenta.    

Here is my card and how I created it!



Close-up. Love all the textures using various products.


Instructions:
 Stamp and emboss the bird image


Put a little API ( all purpose ink) onto a clear sheet and use it as watercolor, to color the birds.


Stamp the birds onto masking paper, cut and then spritz some firework spray.


Stamp the branches using memento markers


Put a little irRESISTible spray onto an acrylic sheet and add dots for berries using an embossing tool.


Use white Pico embillisher for the snow effect, onto the branches. It is just perfect for those small areas of snow.


Stamp: Cuddle winter Birds, Bushy Branch
ImagineCraft/ Tsukineko: API (All Purpose Ink): Lemon Yellow, Cerulian Blue, Thistle, Chocolate, Tangerine, Sand, Poppy Red; Memento Marker: Northern Pine, Cottage Ivy; Pico Embellisher: White; irRESISTible texture spray: Lady Bug
