Hello there! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today.
Elina Strömberg is here with some gorgeous inspiration for this month’s Facebook group challenge which is all about words…
Today I’m sharing with you two cards I made using two lovely quote stamps by Visible Image:
I wanted the quote to be the main focus of the card, so I kept the other embellishments to minimum.
For the background I used soft pink liquid watercolor that I applied in several layers, drying each layer with my heat gun before applying the next layer of water and/or colour.
Once the background was ready I stamped the quote. The ‘Smile Sparkle Shine’ text I created some highlights with an embossing pen, added gold embossing powder, and heat set the powder with my heat gun.
Usually I decorate the watercoloured background with some pattern stamping, but this time I wanted to add more golden shimmer. I sprinkled a bit of the same embossing powder around the stamped quote, and heat set the powder by heating it from underneath. Blowing it from top would have blown the powder away as it was loose on the paper.
The only decoration element was a simple die-cut frame I covered with embroidery yarn. Wrapping the yarn around the paper frame took a while, but I just love the end result! Once the entire frame was covered I glued the frame on the card front.
These cards were really simple and fun to make. Hope they inspire you, too!
These are so fabulous Elina!
Loving your background, and the gold looks gorgeous against the delicate pink ♡ Thank you!
