Masked Stripes With Ink Blending and Glitter Glaze
Happy Friday crafty friends! Lauren here, sharing this sparkly muted card with you. To make this card, I started off with a panel of Alabaster cardstock. I took several long pieces of purple tape and sliced them in half with my paper trimmer (I tried it and it worked great!). I masked off diagonal stripes and just eyeballed it for even spacing. I started blending with Plum surface ink towards the outer edges, then moved into Rouge, and finishing towards the center with Honeysuckle. Before removing the tape, I spread Fallen Snow glitter glaze across the whole panel. I took the tape off and set the panel aside to dry.
When the striped panel dried, it had this muted effect that sparkles like crazy!
For the sentiment, I used a stamp from the Love Bugs set. I tried it first with honeysuckle but it was a little too light and I tried it with Rouge and it was a little too dark, so I actually stamped lightly on a scrap paper with Rouge, and then inked it with Honeysuckle while there was still a little bit of Rouge on the stamp, and it was a perfect in-between shade! I die cut the sentiment and a slightly larger piece of vellum to layer it with, and popped them both up with foam tape.
