Waterfront, Itty Bitty Greetings, Sympathy Card, Stamping Technique

I found this fun technique on a card in Pinterest.  The card didn't lead to a link to where it originated from. I'm not sure what it is called but it was fun to do but needs a little more work to get it just right. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. This card opens at the bottom.  The next layer is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Tranquil Tide card stock.  I cut a 4-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock and a 4-3/4" x 5" piece of Crumb Cake.

I stamped on the Crumb Cake piece.  I took the largest image, it's used as big background clouds. I used the round image for the sun, the mountains image and the trees image.  First you need to stamp all the images using Whisper White craft ink. You must work this card quickly because the craft ink will be drying. 

Next I stamped the clouds piece using Balmy Blue ink stamped off once. I should have stamped the sun first because it's standing in front of the clouds. I used Crushed Curry for the sun.  Then I stamped the mountains using Crumb Cake ink and finally the trees. I used Tranquil Tide for the trees and I took an Early Espresso marker to define the trunks.  You don't want to stamp exactly where you stamped the white because it won't give you that glowing effect.  The mountains show too much of the white. It's a technique that needs a little more practice. But knowing what I did wrong helps. Now that you know what not to do, yours will be SO much better!!  

I taped the Crumb Cake piece to the Whisper White piece and tied a piece of linen around it three times. I set that piece in place using Dimensionals.  The original card had some rhinestones added to it.  Oh and it also looks like some Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added. I didn't add the glitter. I wasn't sure how it was going to stick.  But I did add a few rhinestones after (before I took this photo).  It's okay on there. I like it with or without the rhinestones.

It's a super easy technique to do and fun!  I like the look.  I have no idea what the technique is called. If you find out, please let me know so I can post it here.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Hi Wanda,
Did you mask at all? Love this card. Should I just jump right in or think about it for a while! Sounds easy, but looks complicated!
Love your blog!

No masking at all. Just eyed it.
