Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
Like most stamp sets in my collection, I first saw this one on Pinterest and fell in love. The moment I saw it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. So into the shopping cart it went.
I wanted to create a warm and happy card and chose my palette accordingly. Interestingly, and it didn't even occur to me until right now, there is no glitter on this card. The embossed greeting is shiny, but other than that there is zero shimmer.
Mind. Blown. Right?
To begin, heat embossed the image in white onto 140lb coldpress watercolour paper.
I then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to colour it in. These pens are pretty much my go-to for colouring right now, and my absolute first choice when it comes to watercolouring. I cannot get enough.
Typically when I am creating a piece that will make it to the blog (because some don't) and moreso when it will be entered into a challenge, I write all the supplies and colours down so I can reference them during post. I have been led to believe that the paper for this post was stolen by a certain sweet-faced 4 year old that I caught in my craft space. Basically that translates to me not having a list of colours for you.
The blue halo around the image was created by wetting the area with clean water and dropping in Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
The greeting from Clearly Besotted's "Sunshine and Smiles" set is heat embossed with gold.
I then mounted the panel on a standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
