Here’s a card I made a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure I liked it – because I think there are too many “bubbles” and they’re not random enough. But I haven’t had time to make something new. Well, I have, but it’s all stuff that will post later. And, of course, I’ve been working on decorations for the Apple Blossom Festival Ladies’ Luncheon. I’ll post photos of those after Friday. For now, just know that I punched and stamped 250 Pansy flowers and die cut and stamped over 100 larger flowers from the retiring Flower Frenzy die. Plus I painted/glued/glittered 45 Kraft cones. Yep. I’ve been a busy little glittery beaver the past couple of weeks.
For this card, I used Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay classic ink with Whisper White craft ink. The sentiment is from the soon-to-be-retired Geometrical set, and the hearts are punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack heart.
For this card, I made a stencil from a window sheet. I punched and die-cut different sized circles and sponged the ink through the stencil with a sponge dauber. Usually you use watercolor paper for the “bokeh” technique, but I used Shimmery White for this. It gives it a nice shimmer (go figure!), but it also held up well when I watercolored the background.
I’m really going to miss the Naturals White and Naturals Ivory card stock, aren’t you? The base for this one is Whisper White, but the naturals card stocks made great card bases, especially if you didn’t have a lot of layers.
