Inkadinkado Morphic Birds

Hello and today’s card features a number of different techniques, so can you spot all the techniques? Look for:

Stamping onto Acetate ● Gilding Flakes on Acetate ● Paper Punching ● Flower Sculpting ● Digital Die Cutting ● Manual Die Cutting ● Accenting

Card Recipe:
Stamp: Inkadinkado morphic birds
Colouring Mediums: Stazon Black Inkpad
Paper & Card: DCWV Far East Stack, Stardream Metallic Cappuccino, Conqueror Iridescent Morphing Mauve
Tools: Spellbinder Die, Silhouette Cameo, BigShot, Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page, cake decorating
Embellishments: Gilding Flakes

To make the focal point for this card, I first stamped the gorgeous Morphing Birds stamp by Inkadinkado onto clear acetate using Stazon ink. I then carefully painted gilding size glue onto the reverse and set aside to dry (15-30mins). Next came fun with gilding flakes, which I applied over the size and then buffed gently to achieve the burnished finish. Finally, I trimmed the image, leaving a small border of clear acetate.

I’ve had this DCWV Far East cardstock pack for ages, and I just used 1 sheet featuring the dragon and birdcage images to make both mats and then used the offcuts to die cut the flowers and the bird cage. To make the latter, I used my Silhouette Cameo. For the flowers, I cut multiple flowers using Spellbinders Rose Creations, then shaped the petals using my PME cake decorating tool to make them “cup”.
