Creating Toucan Do It with Fun Stampers Journey

Welcome to the place where I share my creativity. I am a Coach with Fun Stamper’s Journey. These products are high-quality rubber cling and the dies are green and of superior quality! I am so glad you are here!

Do you like to have a product in your craft supplies that you can use in several ways? I love to have versatile products to work with. I wanted to create a tropical background for my project with the leaf layers stencil. I had one problem, I didn’t have any green color splash sprays. So, I took myself back a few years in my paper crafting and thought I can make my own spray using some FSJ products that I had on hand. Get comfortable and let me show you what I did!

Today, I am sharing a project tutorial teaching you how I created my own water based spray using Fun Stampers Journey products. This is different from our splashes which are pigment based.

How To:

Supplies Needed For Background Spray

  • Empty spray bottle
  •  Limeade Splash Liquid Color
  •  Sparkle Silk
  • 5 ml water

Step 1

Using an empty spray bottle I put about 4 to 5 drops of the Liquid Color in Limeade Splash and a hint of the Sparkle Silk into approximately 5 milliliters of Water. Swirl to mix. This mixture helped me to create a soft shimmer spray for my background.

Step 2.

Lay the Leaf Layers stencil over a piece of Whip Cream cardstock. (Place in a shoebox to minimize overspray). Lightly mist over the stencil until the desired effect is achieved. I lightly misted my background for a softer effect, however, if you are looking to achieve a darker result simply spray twice or ink with True Fusion Ink and a sponge Dauber Dowel.

Step 3.

I stamped the Toucan in Clear Pigment Ink and then heat embossed with black embossing powder for a raised glossed appearance. This also helps to contain the color when water-coloring. I used liquid colors (Lemon Drop, Limeade Splash, and Candy Apple) on an acrylic block diluted with water. Some portions I painted non-diluted for a bolder color. The Journey Blending Brush works perfectly for this type of application.

Step 4

Once you’ve finished stamping your two toucans, five leaves of choice and your sentiment then run them through your Journey Platinum machine with the coordinating dies. I also used the Mystical Fern Die and the Pinked Border Die from the Border Essentials Die Set to add more texture into the card.

Final Steps.

I assembled my first layer on to my cardstock base, and then applied the die cut oval. Next, apply the fern and two stamped leaves. I placed the pinked border to the top of the card to add a more polished effect. I heat embossed the sentiment and the toucans. To add dimension to the card I popped up the two toucans, the branch and the two leaves under the toucans. I adhered those pieces with medium Journey Foam Squares. For my finishing touches, I lightly splattered the card with Black Licorice Silk and added a few sequins.

This would make a great Anniversary, Wedding or even a Friendship card.

I absolutely loved creating this project! I hope you do too!
