Foggy Morning

The past week, here in Michigan, we have seen several days with really heavy, dense fog. I was inspired to try to create a foggy scene on a birthday card. I spent most of the morning working on the card. I first started out by stamping the image on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I tried sponging over the image with Stampin' Up's Whisper White craft ink. It was working but not like I wanted it to. Next I tried stamping the image on light gray card stock using VisaFine Onyx Black ink. Now it looked like I was on the right track. Finally, I began sponging over the stamped image. I tried to add more sponging in the center of the image to create more depth to the scene. I used Memento Gray Flannel ink to stamp the deer and then did more sponging. Finally I was getting the look that I wanted. I love the finished result.

The stamps used were: "Woodland Wonder" from Penny Black, "Forest Silhouettes" from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and the "Happy Birthday" from Stampin' Up's set called "Bloom With Hope". The card base is SU's So Saffron card stock with a small piece of designer paper that I found in the scrap box.
