In this set, there’s a variety of images but I focused on two of the characters and two accessory items. I wanted to create a small storyline of someone enjoying a glamorous day.
I stamped out the images I wanted to use on rectangles and I masked them off so I could use distress oxide inks to color up the background. I added both water and silver paint splatter to them for a bit more interest.
After coloring up the images, I lined the rectangle edges with a black pen creating a frame. I really loved how these came out. I wanted them to be the main focus but needed to add the sentiment for the card. I chose a piece of Smokey Eyes card stock and it has this really fine, pretty sandstone texture to it. It was a bit hard to picture, but you can notice it in the picture above. If you haven’t tried the cardstock from the store, I highly recommend it. I am really enjoying the subtle texture on the card stock that provides a little interest in the background but not deterring away from your main focus of the card.
I stamped the sentiments directly on the card stock, having no issues even with the texture and trimmed the card panel so I could mat it on black cardstock. I wanted to tie the black color back to the lined rectangles.
That’s it for today’s card. I really like the colors that pop against the neutral grey and I hope you enjoyed it too!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
