Hi there. I know, it's been a long time again since I last posted. There just never seem to be enough hours in the day.
Anyway, enough excuses; I was asked to share how I made this card, so here goes. I used yellow, orange, pink and purple, but feel free to try another colour combination for a different effect.
LINDA'S FRIENDS DANGLES STA-WO-10603-A5
FLOWER POWER STENCIL 7" X 7" STE-FL-00252-77
BASIC BACKGROUNDS A5 STENCIL SET + A5 STENCIL FOLDER STE-PA-00291-A5
TINA'S FLOWERS 1 + MASK UNMOUNTED CLEAR STAMP SET STA-FL-10515-A5
TINA'S FLOWERS 2 + MASK UNMOUNTED CLEAR STAMP SET STA-FL-10516-A5
Colour bursts or brushos
Artistry or distress inks
PEBEO DRAWING GUM ACC-AD-30376-XX
Using black archival, stamp"friends" and a couple of the word trails flowing across the card
Mask "friends" using masking fluid
Spritz the card lightly with water and add the colour bursts. Spritz on more water as desired
Once dry, brush and sponge the artistry/distress inks randomly through both stencils to add further interest to the background
Brush around the edges with a couple of the colours for an aged effect
Rub off the masking fluid and add some shade around the letters with pencils
Edge with a black Sharpie pen and mount onto a card blank
Glue a mop up sheet (mine was kitchen towel), to a piece of card and use this to stamp out a few flowers
Cut out and glue in place to highlight the design
Add pearl centres and a few sequins to finish
I'd love to see what you make if you have a go at this card. Sharing my work and hopefully some inspiration is one of my favourite things about being on the Clarity Design Team.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Till next time. Xxx
