Hello! We hope you had a good weekend. We decided to take some much needed ‘time out’ in the sunshine which was lovely! We have so much inspiration to share this week and we are on Create + Craft TV on Thursday [details below]. Stempelfrida is kicking off the week with a fantastic card featuring our Destination Unknown set which includes the paper plane stamps…
Discover, explore, the unknown: the greatest adventure is what lies ahead!
What do you want to discover? What lies ahead of you? Maybe only in your dreams? Yes, these are difficult times for big steps, we have to limit many things. But our dreams always remain with us and in them we can wish for everything, imagine everything. And that feels sooo good! And you know what? There are dreams that are so beautiful because we can dream them and because they are not real. As dreams they are the most beautiful.
I had the idea of a pastel card with a wall and a light feel. The wall is made up of small pieces. In the middle I have left a breakthrough.
For the background I wiped a background with three colors Distress Oxides. On this I stamped different patterns with the same colors and stamped the saying on the white stripe at the bottom. I chose a shade of gray for this to keep the lightness. I have also stamped the paper plane in this tone and colored it with Polychromos pens.
I used water to create bright dots on the background and also added white splashes with a Posca brush pen. The texts should be easy to read, but not too dominant. Therefore I embossed them in white.
At the edges I added a little bit of doodling in a gray tone. Some of the small circles I have first emphasized with white and then in yellow and orange.
Stamp pads: Memento espresso truffle; Distress Oxides spun sugar, dried marigold, wild honey, dusty concord, mustard seed, squeezed lemonade, kitch flamingo, twisted citron; Versamark
Embossing powder: Stampendous! detail white
Polychromos pencils 205, 112, 140, 120, 154, 249, 255
Posca pens: yellow, bright yellow; white PCF
We love this card! The gorgeous summery colours and the combination of stamps and the sentiment really resonate right now, with the feeling of hope for coming out the other side of this pandemic! Thank you stempelfrida ♡
