Shine Your Light

Rachel’s fabulous card was created with stamps from our SHINING BRIGHT set [which includes this powerful sentiment!], together with our STROBES stencil.

[Tutorial] Rachel sprayed a piece of white card with ‘Shaded Lilac’ and ‘Kitsch Flamingo’ distress spray stain. Once dried, Rachel repeatedly stamped the smaller light bulb using Versafine Clair ink in ‘Purple Delight’ to create the card background. These were then clear embossed using Wow embossing powder. The larger light bulb was then stamped onto a separate piece of white card using the same ink, and fussy cut out. Rachel then blended the edges of the large lightbulb with ‘Kitsch Flamingo’ distress ink and painted with Paperartsy gloss glaze.

After blending through the strobes stencil with Paperartsy ‘snowflake’ white paint, the sentiment was cut out and layered onto black card. All pieces were then stuck into position using 3D foam and/or acrylic glue. Embroidery thread was added behind the large light bulb to add interest to the card. Aspects of the strobe effect were then highlighted using a yellow polychromos coloured pencil. Finally, the card topper was placed onto black and white card.
