Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card featuring Three Room Studio’s stamp set named, Retail Therapy. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been finding myself making purchases during this shelter in place. I want to support a ton of small businesses. Have you been doing the same?
Originally, I meant to make this card a hidden slider card and well, it didn’t work out. I didn’t want to scrap the entire thing so I finished it off anyway and left it as a simple card.
I stamped out the main girl using Ink on 3’s Blackout Ink and colored her up using copic markers. I wanted to create an easy background so I used some Post It Adhesive to mask off the bottom. I inked up the top portion of the card with Stormy Sky distress ink, and then went over the same area a second time using My Favorite Things Stamps’ Chunky Herringbone (retired). I like the effect of layering the colors for a subtle background. For the floor/bottom portion, I used Pumice Stone, Stormy Sky, and Black soot distress ink.
I stamped out the sentiments and since I played with a hidden slider which didn’t work out, I just adhered the girl directly to the card panel covering up my slider. Since it looked a little bare, I added a few embellishments to help fill the space.
Although this card didn’t turn out the way I expected, I’m glad I didn’t scrap the entire thing. Sometimes simple cards are the best.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
