Evening all, I hope your Sunday has been fabulous, despite the horrible weather that seems to be never-ending.
I’d like to show you a commissioned card today. The brief was a card for a girl, who likes purple, pink, green & lots of sparkle.
The first thing I did was create a background using Dylusions spray inks – if you want vibrant colour, you cannot go wrong with these. I’ve discovered that what works for me is spraying the inks on to my craft sheet, spritzing them with water & then putting the cardstock on top. I pat off the excess with paper towel & dry with my heat tool & I do that until I’ve used all the ink. I find I can build up plenty of layers that way.
I spritzed water through the Dylusions snowflake stencil for a ‘bleached’ effect, which then was mostly covered when I flicked more water on top & very quickly sprinkled Stampendous Fran’tage EP over that. I LOVE that EP sticks to the wet paper, you get a very imprecise finish.
I found a little flourish stamp in my Christmas stash & added that.
The dress is a Kanban stamp. I stamped it first on the off cut from the background, then again onto white card, cutting it out & colouring with Promarkers. I curved the skirt around a pot of EP & attached it with silicon glue, so that you can partially see the dress underneath.
I used a glue pen & Glamour Dust on the skirt & a glitter pen to highlight other areas. I wish the photos could show you the sparkle on this card, it’s completely OTT. I just hope the recipient likes it.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog, I appreciate it very much. Until tomorrow, (Christmas Eve – gulp!!!), take care &
Love & light (with glitter on top)
