Hello everyone!! I’m excited to share this card with you today. Just like last week, I combined some new with old to create my card. What I love about this release, is that it all works amazingly well with all the products in the shop!!!
I tried something a little different today as far as colouring goes. I used a variety of Distress Inks and a Dove Blender Pen. I stamped the feathers onto some watercolour paper with Black Archival Ink from Ranger. After smooshing a few different colours onto a slick surface, I simple dipped the tip of the Blender Pen in the ink and applied to the image. I started where I wanted the colour to be the darkest and as you colour, the ink on the pen fades out. I then used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out.
For the background of the card, I wanted to try a technique I seen Kristina Werner do. I chose a polka dot stencil and placed it directly onto my cardbase. I used a light grey ink for the dots. Then, I moved the stencil slightly lower and to the left. I took my white gel pen and traced the circles of the stencil. This creates the coolest 3-D effect!!
As you can see, I used the new Hooray Day Honeycuts for the word congratulations. I die cut the shadow from white cardstock and the word from watercolour paper. I used my blender pen and remaining ink to add colour to the congratulations. I adhered everything with foam adhesive.
To finish off, I added some Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to sections of the feather. And to add some much needed sparkle, I used some Sticky Back Rhinestones.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my project for this week! See you soon!!
