Hi everyone! It is Verity here again from Pretty Little Button, so good to be back up on the blog again. This card today was inspired by a card I saw over on Youtube by Kelly Latevola. I don't know about anybody else but I love watching cardmaking videos and this one by Kelly, use a variety of drinks containers and coloured inks to create a patterned background. When watching it, I thought the Tea Time stamp set would be brilliant for this and I used a variety of Brutus Monroe surface inks as well. I love how this card has turned out, though I think Kelly's is better, she has been crafting longer than I have. We all learn and improve on out crafting journey!
No one stacks up to you card details:
To start, chose a selection of Brutus Monroe Surface Inks that coordinate well together. I chose Sidewalk, Oz, Sea, Speckled Egg
Remeber, if you don't have many colours you could also use second generation stamping for another lighter colour. I did this here a few times for added variation.
For speed, load up your stamps from the Tea time stamp set
onto several acrylic blocks, you don't need a stamping platform for this technique! Start by stamp your first image in the middle of a piece of Alabaster cardstock
work outwards. This will prevent awkward gaps appearing that you cannot fil. Trim this panel down when complete, and adhere to a black card base with double-sided adhesive tape.
Die cut a sentiment several times from Raven cardstock
and adhere together with Craft Glue.
Before die cutting the top layer, add a strip of double-sided adhesive tape
to the front and remove the release paper. Using a piece of decofoil, lay over the top a foil in your colour choice and burnish onto the tape. When you remove the foil sheet, the foil will have transferred to the card where the tape sat. Die cut the last sentiment so half contains the foil and adhere to your layered die cut.
