I’ve been playing a lot with foil resist techniques using different mediums. This time I colored these lovely Lace Flowers with pigment inks, blending different colors to achieve a soft and pretty look.
This card is also a shaker card, so it was fun to make too! To have it be a flatter shaker I used glitter. To finish the card I added a foiled sentiment on vellum and a few rhinestones. The final effect of this card is truly soft and very Spring forward!
For my second card I used Hello Gorgeous, a must-have digi set the designers and I truly enjoyed coloring! I printed the flowers on a laser printer, heated the toner ink to set it completely just in case and brought out my Zigs to create a beautiful blend of blues and greens. Just when you thought digis couldn’t be watercolored… I’ve tried almost every technique with digis (see here), so don’t feel intimidated! (Besides, it will save you time and money! Yay!)
All that yummy sparkle on the flowers was added with shimmer spray, but you could also use glitter glue or glitter pens. The sparkle on the papers is actually original to some amazing metallic cardstocks (Juniper Berry Glimmer and Onyx Mica/Metallic) from an online shop I love: Paper Temptress. This card is just a little taste of what’s coming on March 15th, as we will have a blog hop with Paper Temptress’ designers to showcase our stamps together with their beautiful cardstocks!
Now, come check out what the designers prepared for you!
