Now that we’re a couple of days past the launch of the latest Stamp of Approval collection, I thought I would branch out a bit and start pulling in some other products to use in conjunction with the new collection. For today’s card, I pulled in some colorful card stock for my card base as well as a sentiment from a past collection.
To start my card, I cut a layer of white card stock to A2 size. I did some repeat stamping along the diagonal using the peacock tail image from the Paisley Peacock stamp set in the new collection. I used sponge daubers to apply multiple inks to create the multicolor effect. I used Fiesta Blue, Aquatini, and Lime Rickey inks from Catherine Pooler Designs for this step. I used the larger polka dot accent stamp from the stamp set and Lime Rickey ink to fill in the gaps between the tails.
Once I had the technique panel completed, I created an A2 top-folding card base from Mermaid card stock by Lawn Fawn. I stamped the solid thanks sentiment from the Painted Thanks stamp set by Neat & Tangled in the lower right corner using Catherine’s Midnight ink. This stamp set was part of the Lovely Notes collection released last year, but the products can be purchasing individually now in Catherine’s online store.
To complete my card, I wrapped some black baker’s twine around my technique panel and tied it off with a small bow. I adhered the technique panel to the card base using foam tape. For a bit of added bling, I went over all the little tail feathers and sentiment with the clear Sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir and that finished my card.
I’m entering this card in the following challenge:
- Less is More – the current theme is a color wheel challenge to use three adjacent colors. I used blue, aqua, and green.
Until next time …
