Baby on the way card w/Sweet Stamp Shop stamp

Hi everyone

Today I have a card to share that incorporates a technique to easily add to or alter a solid stamp image. Read on to see more + a video!

Before I start, I have some bad news: the stampset I used for the silhouette/solid image, is retired. But, hopefully you will be able to use the techniques I show in the video on a stampset you have in your collection.
Talking about the video, let's start with showing you that: 

Watch the video above, or on YouTube here.

After making the image as shown in the video, I put together a card.

I cut out some green cardstock with a grass border die, trimmed it shorter, and stamped a Norwegian saying onto the grass. The sentiment is the Norwegian word for "Congratulations", which worked well for this card. I adhered it onto the image panel, which I then cut down a bit. I finished the card by adhering the image panel to a kraft cardbase using foam adhesive.

Copic markers used: N7 (for filling in the image) and R29 (for coloring the paper for the diecut heart)
