Welcome everyone! I have a simple but visually striking card to share with you today that was featured over on the Lawn Fawn Youtube channel and blog.
I also have a video up that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
In one of my videos, you can view HERE, I saw a lot of comments of people struggling with ink blending so I thought I would give another variation.
Instead of using ink we are using card stock! This is a great way to use up scraps too. Think about the colors of ink you would use for a sky or water. Then dig through your stash and find colors of card stock that match.
I’m using Mermaid, Peacock and Blue Jay for my ocean. For the sky, I cut strips of Sticky Note, Sunflower, Fake Tan, Guava and Raspberry card stock.
Have you ever checked out the Gold Rush card stock from Lawn Fawn? It’s gorgeous and makes a perfect beach which I die cut using the Stitched Hillside Border die.
You can add clouds to your horizon by die cutting the Puffy Clouds Border from white card stock.
Add a small sentiment by directly stamping onto the card stock with Offset Sayings: Birthday.
Then personalize a message by die cutting letters from Black Licorice card stock with the Oliver’s Stitched ABC’s and adding to the front with foam tape.
Hard to see in the pictures, but I added some sparkle to the letters using Lawn Fawn’s Glitter Pen.
So think about the different ink blended backgrounds you’ve seen and see what you can create by using card stock! I’ll bet you’ll be amazed with the results!
