Hello Brutus friends!

Today I will be sharing a colorful card with you. I just knew I wanted to use this cool paper that matched up perfectly to the String Lights stamp set. I knew that I wanted to use bright colors for the lights. Layers of lights is what ended up happening. I adhered my Paper Studio paper to a white card base.

The String Lights are stamped in archival ink and illuminated by using some distress ink blotted on with a stencil brush. Wink of Stella added some sparkle and some glossy accents finished off the bulbs to create a glassy effect. Next I used some foam tape to pop up the stamped image.

It still seemed like it needed something so I pressed some distress ink onto my glass media mat and sprayed a tiny bit of water on it to make some matching watercolor. I used a brush to pick that up and specifically flicked it onto the upper left and lower right of the card to create more balance and get rid of void space.


I hope you have enjoyed my card as a DT guest.

Happy stamping and crafting friends!
