Hello and welcome
I decided this week to play with some inks to see what effects I could get using blue, green and purple. I tried 3 different types – Distress Inks, Brilliance Inks and Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders.
I also tried, smooching the colour and dipping the cardstock into the colour.
Once the pieces were dry, I decided I loved the first and last. I had used Perfect Pearls water to mix with the Distress Inks to give a little shimmer.
I then cut Altnew’s leafy Garland Die from both panels.
I cut the card front panel and smooched the same Distress Inks on the front.
Using Altnew’s Fine Cover Frames, I used 3 of the frames. 2 were covered with Wink of Stella Silver. These were glued to a white panel with the largest being the outside edge.
I stamped the simple sentiment from the Altnew wonderland Stamp Set in black Brilliance Lightning Black Ink.
After layering this panel onto the card front, I added the 2 die cut garlands so they crossed over, with the darker Pixie Powders piece at the back for depth.
It is difficult to see, but the garland and background have a lovely shimmery look.
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. I love to read your comments.
Please take care in these uncertain times and be kind to everyone. I wanted the soft delicate look of my card to send this message.
Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.
I look forward to seeing what you create this week!
Have a great day
