Hi everyone…a big pop of color to brighten your day right off the bat! Two cards today.
I loved Shari’s video HERE. I just had to try her technique!
Coloring with Distress inks on Tim Holtz watercolor paper. The Rectangle Basics die set for the layer…
Emboss the Ring Collage die with your die cutting machine…
Add some super cute matte Doodlebug Sprinkles…link below.
Cindy from Starlitstudio gave me this tip and I love using it. You know how it is with adhesives…it takes a half a dozen to make a card! lol I have different mounting options for different reasons. On a narrow frame like this, I love using Cindy’s mounting technique.
Take a piece of craft foam and put scor-tape on both sides. Then you can cut strips whatever size you need! First I cut them ahead but now, I just cut strips with a scissors in the moment to what size I need right then. Love it!
Cindy has White craft foam 3mm HERE, Black craft foam 3mm HERE and Scor-tape HERE. I use the 2 ½ inch size for this. I love scor-tape, well right after Tombow Mono Multi and ATG. lol Oh and 3L mounting squares. See…takes a lot of adhesives! lol You can also use the 2mm fun foam from the chain stores.
Linking my Floral Stem card to challenges…
Next card…more Distress Ink coloring..
Here I die cut the Tulisa Collage die in a white card-stock panel that I die cut with the Rectangle Basics die. I love that the largest rectangle in this set is A2 size! This panel is mounted to the card base with mounting foam strips.
I die cut the Happy Easter Egg die and the grass die from white card-stock. I like to leave or put the die cut back in the waste to do the coloring/inking. Helps it stay in shape and prevents bending too. I inked the words and the grass with Distress inks and the mini ink blending tools.
I glued the sentiment, grass and a few clean sequins to the card front with Tombow Mono Multi glue.
