Super Saturday at Magenta: Sandpiper's Reflection

 This post is also at Magenta today. You can see that here.

When I saw the new Magenta stamp with the Sandpiper and his reflection, I thought he looked like he thought his reflection was a friend there in the water.

After die-cutting the panel with the Dainty Dashes Stackers frame from Penny Black, I lightly added some Distress ink using the ink that was already on my brushes. I feel pretty sure looking at the brushes that it was Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers. I blended the colors through the stencil TM286.

I stamped the image using Versafine Clair Acorn ink. Since it is a pigment ink I was able to sprinkle gold embossing powder on the reflection part of the image. I colored the bird's belly with colored pencils. I'm pretty sure there are no sandpipers with blue coloring, but I liked how it looked. At the end, I stamped the sentiment and embossed with gold and matted the panel and added it to a base card.

  1. I like how you used the two different embossing powders (was the top bird embossed; not sure now that I think about it; whatever!). And silly you - the blue is reflection from the water! That's my reasoning and I'm sticking with it. :-) Lovely card.

    1. Thanks Laura! Yes, of course, that's what I meant - the water reflection on the bird (believe it or not, it had crossed my mind, but should have maybe made it a little lighter). I just used gold embossing powder, but could definitely have used clear on the bird. Did you like the frame? Sort of a cross between two others I have ;-)

    2. Yes, I like the frame and am still amazed you don't rip the paper since you shaded it after cutting. I do it the other way around. But whatever works for each person is the "proper" way to do it. :-)
