There's Those Blues and Greens Again
Monday, August 18, 2014
Don't you find that you gravitate towards some colors when designing cards? These happen to be the first colors I grab; and if I don't stop myself they would find their way onto all my cards. Sometimes I will make a concerted effort to put them back and try something else, but not today *smile*.
Playing along with a couple of challenges over at Splitcoast today, both of which call for stencils.
I placed the star stencil on my paper and then stamped the alphabet stamp through the openings in the stencil by just "walking" my fingers over the stamp. Then, I used a mini ink blending tool to sponge two of the colors through the stencil over top of what I'd just stamped.
A simple stamped sentiment and some strategically placed sequins and done! Strategically you ask?...well there were a couple of "uh ohs" on my card and magically the sequins came to the rescue...whew!
Here's what I used:
Paper: Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink: Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Peeled Paint Distress Ink, Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps: Wendy Vecchi from A to Z and Altenew Superscript
All the other stuff: Dylusions stencil, Ranger mini ink blending tool, Simon Says Stamp sequins, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, adhesive
