Brutus Monroe Paper Cranes

Hello, friends! Have you seen the new stamps from Brutus Monroe? The June release was their biggest release yet! There are many new and exciting stamps, as well as a number of additional items. Go check it out if you haven’t yet!

I am playing with the new stamp set, Paper Cranes, today! I love the simple lines on this set, and Im sure this image would look fantastic any way you choose to use it. Today, I am sharing how I stamped it on all these hexagon die cuts and layered them to get one, continuous image.

First, I ink blended a background using my Surface Inks. I used the colors Zest, Apricot, Evening Sky (a Pink and Main color), and Sunny Sky (another Pink and Main). I then used my hexagon dies to cut out as many ink blended shapes as I could in varying sizes.

Next, I trimmed down a panel of white cardstock to create an A10 sized card. An A10 is 4×9, so my front panel was slightly smaller at 3.75×8.75. This gave just a quarter inch border around the edge.

I arranged all my hexagon pieces on the front of the card panel the way I wanted them to be arranged. I then applied some low-tack, temporary adhesive to the back of the hexagons. This way, I could stamp over all of them without them shifting around.

I placed my card panel in my Misti and stamped the Paper Cranes stamp over them using Detail ink.

Once my cranes were stamped, I carefully picked up the hexagons one at a time and adhered them down. I made sure to keep them all exactly where I had them when I stamped over them. This way, all the cranes still lined up and were right in place where they were supposed to be. Some of the hexagons I popped up with foam adhesive.

To finish this card, I added a few gold sequins, and brushed the paper cranes with my gold shimmer Midas Aqua Pen from Tonic!

I love the continuing image of the birds over all the hexagons, even when some are popped up on foam adhesive!
