Happy Monday! I wanted to stop by and share a new card with you. This one strikes a sensitive chord, because it reminds me of where I come from, and how I got here! I illustrated this stamp during the first week of the new year, and I knew this was going to be a special set right away. This new digital stamp set is called I Can Do All Things, and you can find out more about it HERE.
Today’s card is super fresh and is my first attempt at using more yellow during 2019. Yes, using this vibrant color more is one of my crafty goals for the year!
Although at first glance it may seem like the floral ladder is part of the background, it was actually printed separately on Canson Mixed Media Paper, using the Samsung M2020W Laser Printer. Printing the image in a laser printer, allows me to watercolor the image without any issues! I colored the ladder and flowers with both Arteza and Zig Real Brush pens, and both brands seemed to work together nicely. It also helps a lot having the digi stamp printed on mixed media paper, since it works great with these markers!
Next, I fussy cut the image and set it to the side. Meanwhile I used the Permanent Yellow from the Paul Rubens Watercolors to create a loose large splatter on a white card panel. I think the yellow brings this card to life and the wash effect on one side is all that was necessary to make every other element pop! Once the background was ready, I adhered the image to it using the new Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive by Therm O Web. This adhesive is also what I used to attach the sequins (and it works amazing)!
I printed the sentiment together with the floral ladder, and many other digi stamps I wanted to color, and that way I can fill the entire sheet with images and not have any waste! I extended some splatters to the sentiment, and I feel like doing a little something like this ties everything together! I die cut the sentiment using GK Designs Double Stitch Design Circle Die Set, and I mounted it on the background using 3D Zots.
Hope you love this clean card idea! I also hope it inspires you today! The sentiments included in this set are so encouraging! We invite to come over to the shop, and take a closer look at it! We have a everything on the shop marked down right now! Including our new Sweet Heart Bundle.
