One of the Challenges of the February VSN at Splitcoast was to create a card with Soot Stamping. For my sample I used the gorgeous bird stamp from Tim Holtz Urban Tapestry stamp set.

Before I added the soot to my glossy cardstock, I cut  and embossed it first with a Label 13 Nestabilities die. It was adhered to a piece of Classic White cardstock, that was hand cut into a slightly bigger layer. The edges of the soot layer were paper pierced.

A 2″ x 5 1/4″ strip of Echo Park Merry Christmas paper was stitched to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. May Arts Crochet Ribbon was tied around the bottom of the horizontal layer before everything was adhered to the card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, folded in half.

The bird layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals. It was adhered underneath the lace. A Philosophy Tag was attached to the lace with a jump ring. Tim Foilage topped with a Recollection Pearl brad finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  13. Beate: I have looked at this gorgeous card over and over again. (I keep it on my desk for inspiration). It is such a cool technique. Thanks so much for sending me the card, and for sharing the how to with us. We’re putting our house on the market, and I haven’t been able to play with paper for the entire month of June. Sigh… So your blog is more fun to read than ever!
