“Bold Print, Heron with Border” was stamped with a black stamp pad and trimmed with deckle scissors. Turquoise and yellow ink was sponged over the surface to mute the black and to give highlights. This piece was layered on black, orange and a background paper made with brush strokes of blue and gold Lumiere paints on black card stock. Card by Danielle Côté.
“Bold Block – Celestial Bunny”, “Bold Block – Heron”, “Bold Block – Blazing Sun”, “Bold Block – Rooster” and “Bold Block – Hummingbird” are stamped on glossy card stock using a black Memories ink pad and cut out. The background is made by stamping white glossy card stock three times in different colors with a scrap of rubber left over from trimming an unmounted stamp. The scrap is inked using a couple of drops of a chalk stamp pad re-inker on a cosmetic wedge. The rectangles are direct to paper small dye stamp pads. The blocks are attached in the pattern shown above. The glossy card stock is layered on steel blue grey card stock and a black line is drawn around the white glossy card stock. Card by Thalia Sledge.
