Hello everyone! I’m super excited to share today’s post! Cas-ual Fridays Ink Squad is celebrating with a 20% off the entire collection (using coupon code: HUE20) at the shop and we are this week’s sponsor for Crafting of Hue.
This weekend’s theme is all about “CELEBRATION” and my project today is about “Celebrating Life“. I have a friend who is going through so much pain lately and this card is for her. I want her to know that “life is beautiful” and even though it seems that her world is surrounded by darkness, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.
To make my card, I started by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I use the Posies fri-dies to die-cut the images.
I cut an A2 size piece of Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up this panel with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress oxide ink. I used the Tin Roof stencil and Spiced Marmalade ink to create more texture for my background. I smooshed the ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water, then used my watercolor brush to add droplets to this panel. I then wiped it with my paper towel and set it aside to dry.
I die-cut the white wreath using a die from my stash and adhered this piece on my colored background. I added the flowers with foam and liquid adhesive and put this piece back on to my paper trimmer and trimmed about an eighth of an inch. I added this panel to an A2 size card base.
To ground the bold images and balance it out, I added a strip of black and white patterned paper.
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black card stock and sprinkled some white embossing powder then heat-set with my heating tool. I adhered this piece in the middle using my tape runner. Here’s my card:
To finish my design, I used my white gel pen and drew some white dots on the images for added texture and dimension. Here’s a closer look:
I hope you like my card today. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
