Celebrate 50 - #7

Super Hero Set Spring/Summer CTMH Idea Book
Stamping on dark colors can be daunting sometimes. On this card I used Close To My Hearts pigment ink, White Daisy to stamp the cityscape on black. It does take a bit to dry (you can speed this up using a heat gun) however the effect  is worth the wait time. Take care to not smudge the image while drying , this is the first piece I would stamp for the card and set aside while working on the other components. Rumple your paper by simply  folding and refolding. I took some sandpaper to the edges of the ruffled piece which breaks down the fibers enough to soften the look (hey even superman has his soft Color and cut (there I go cutting again) and mount each piece once your background piece is dry. Simple and fun !
