Hello! It's another beautiful Friday and I am here to share a card I've created for here and for the SweetStamps.com Blog. I have been having a blast with stencils lately and I'm so excited with how this card turned out...
Art Stencil MOROCCAN TILE as46008
Framed Handwritten Words Clear Stamp Set SS4406
Elegant Leaves SweetCuts Die sc023
Distress INK PADS
Heat Embossing Tool
Self-Adhesive Pearls PEARL
This card is all about the background. To create the background I started with a panel of patterned paper from DCWV. I then temporarily adhered my stencil to the patterned paper and went over it with versamark ink. Next I went over it with clear embossing powder and heat set. Finally I went over all of this with two distress inks and fill in between the embossed areas. In person this card has a beautiful shine to the background. I finished the card by embossing the frame, stamping the sentiment and fussy cutting. Then I diecut the leaves for a finishing touch.
I am adding this to the Virginia's View Challenge: Layering
and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Sentimental
