Easy Zindorf

This is the cheat's way to do a Michelle Zindorf inspired card  i.e. no brayer - just sponges & was the 2nd card made at my Reflection Cards class the other night - it was very easy to do (especially after the 1st one)

Stamp set: Bird on a Branch (this is such a great set & only $39.95 for 5 stamps)
Ink: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Regal Rose, Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise, Brilliant Blue
Paper: Whisper White, Brilliant Blue
Other: Stamp-a-ma jig (SAMJ), Signo white gel pen, acetate

I like the effect of popping the sponged mat out with another mat of whisper white.Otherwise it's just a matter of sponging with Tempting Turquoise - leave a bit of "white space" then sponge around the edges with Brilliant Blue. I also use a piece of shiny acetate (I've found this gives a better impression than the SAMJ smooth mat) to transfer the "reflection".

  1. After sponging with the blue inks as described above stamp the branch onto the acetate using Sahara Sand ink & transfer by rubbing with base of your hand to base of card
  2. Repeat above with the bird being stamped onto the acetate using Sahara Sand ink & transfer on top of the branch to be hanging upside down
  3. Repeat using the flower spray & Regal Rose ink
  4. Now stamp the branch using Basic Black ink & a stamp-a-ma-jig to “line up with the reflection)
  5. Then stamp the bird onto the branch – also using Basic Black Ink
  6. Use the stamp –a-ma jig again to stamp the spray of flowers to the branch using Pink Passion ink
  7. Fill in some of the top flowers with a white Signo gel pen

Very well done Karen! I doubt very much there is much in the way of technique I can show you. You have nailed it, my friend!
