We have collaboration with Neat & Tangled this month and since the moment I saw this stamp set called Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card, I thought of stain glass art.
I wanted to recreate that in a way and so I embossed the image in silver embossing powder. To make it fuller I added some new images to the original design by using the Send Pretty Mail stamp set.
I coloured everything with Inktense pencils and a damp brush. The main image took quite a long time to colour before I was happy with it so I wanted that to shine by keeping everything else simple. I added some stamping on the background and made my card base smaller. A row of sequins and we are done.
Thank you for coming over today and come back tomorrow for another great challenge sponsored by amazing Simon Says Stamp store where you can also get everything I used on today’s card.
Have a great day!
Its the final day of our week-long feature with Neat and Tangled, but don’t fret, we’ll be using their delicious goodies thorughout almost all of our posts for the entire month.
Thank you again to the delightful Danielle, (who was on the first A Blog Named Hero Design Team if you didn’t know!), for agreeing to collab with us this month, it’s always such a pleasure to work with your beautiful designs!
Here is my card:
I kept my card quite simple because I wanted the flowers from “Send Pretty” to really stand out. I took inspiration from Kelly Latevola’s style, with copic colouring and then outlining the images in a soft blue–I’m so happy with how it came out!
The sentiment is an oldie but a goodie from Hero Arts. All the stamping uses Hero Arts Black Dye Ink too–it’s one of the best on the market!
I hope you’ll come back soon and join us when we start our new challenge for the month, which you’ll have had a bit of a peek at, if you’ve been following along on the Neat and Tangled blog, where the DT is joining us in a bit of crafty fun!
Thank you so much for stopping by, I’ll be back soon!
Here’s today’s card…
I placed a cloud die (any die would work to fill up the space) so that I could
evenly ink up the backside.
Once all the ombre tags were stamped I went over it with the sweet images in
Hero Hues India Ink Black (it’s an awesome solid black ink).
For some added texture, I used a polka dot embossing folder for the black strip edging.
So that’s my card!
MAHALO for stopping by today and be sure to come back for more
inspiration with our awesome collab partner Neat and Tangled!
