Hello again! I hope you're having a good week! I've had some fun in my craft room this week, and the card I'm sharing with you here is for the Stamp Ink Paper current challenge to use primary colors, the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to "Splatter It" and The Challenge, to use one of the Keywords, of which I chose "friendship".
Making this card was definitely outside my wheelhouse as I am not a primary color type of girl, but it's always good to stretch and do things that are outside one's comfort zone. Plus, I finally used a super cute stamp set that was part of the GENEROUS blog candy I won at SIP's 100th challenge post (thank you DT!!). I've been waiting for the right time to use it and this was it!
I started with a panel of Bristol paper and blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink around the middle. Next the word "lucky" was cut twice from yellow card stock and the larger version from navy card stock. The other parts of the sentiment were heat set with white embossing powder on red card stock.
Before all the words and embellishments were added to the inked panel, it was die cut with the largest Wonky Rectangle die, then splattered with white gouache and water. The wood hearts were colored with a red Zig marker, then topped with Ranger Glossy Accents to make them nice and shiny. Both the hearts and panel were left over night to dry, after which the panel was added to a red card base, and the die cut and embossed sentiment and hearts were adhered to the front, and the card was complete!
Thanks so much for visiting, as always, it's so appreciated! I've added links to the challenges above so be sure to use them to check out all the amazing inspiration!
