So I’ve been trying different techniques and the next several cards on the blog are going to include a lot of watercolor backgrounds, embossing paste, and stencils. I just adore how this card turned out 🙂
- Image: The Greeting Farm ‘Shelly’
- Sentiment: ‘Sending’ is Simon Says Stamp; ‘Love’ is Altenew
- Background: Distress inks in Abandoned Coral and Scattered Straw
- Stencil: Simon Says Stamp
Using the distress inks to create my watercolored background, I let it dry before adding texture with a stencil and clear gloss embossing paste. I stamped Shelly on Neenah card stock in My Favorite Things hybrid ink before coloring her in with copic markers. I cut out the ‘sending’ sentiment twice and glued them together and stamped ‘Love’ in Delicata ink, placing it slightly underneath the ‘sending’ sentiment. I fussy cut out Shelly and attached her using foam tape for some added depth. The last step was to add some sequins and gold drops with a Pico embellisher.
I hope you enjoyed my card!
