Hi there! We have Sharon Traynor here on the blog today with a vibrant time themed card featuring our COUNT ME IN stencil with a sentiment from our SOMEWHERE IN TIME set..
Hello there. My isn’t this year just flying by? We really do need to “live in the now and make every moment count” so that we don’t miss anything, don’t we?
Today it’s time for some of my Visible Image design team inspiration and I thought I would do something different from all those autumnal colours that are around at the moment, so I created a card with fresh, bright colours.
I’ve been experimenting with a bit of mixed media recently and this was one of my first attempts at making an ‘un-grungy’ (is there such a word?) mixed media card. The idea is that I will eventually, over the winter, train myself to do a little more mixed media in my CAS cards. I really like how this one has turned out with such pretty colours.
So in the time honoured tradition of my DT blog post, here’s how I made this:
First, wet your card panel with some water and then add some distress stains. As the distress stains are sadly no longer being sold, you could achieve a similar result using a tiny drop of re-inker or maybe some brushos, but I’m sure that many of us still have some stains laying around that need to be used up.
Once the card panel is dry (I left mine overnight but it really doesn’t take that long), partially stamp into the blank areas, using some of the smaller stamps in the set, with matching distress inks and distress the outside with a blend of one of the inks.
Stamps and Stencil Used:
White card, Distress Stains and Distress Inks (picked raspberry, mustard seed and salty ocean), Luna Paste (stellar champagne, moonlight rose, moonlight ocean), Versamark onyx black ink, WOW! clear sparkle embossing glitter, fun foam.
That’s it from me for now. Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon.
Wow this is amazing Sharon! The stencil looks stunning with the sparkle of the luna paste, and we love the vibrant colours! Thank you ♡
