I started this card by creating my focal panel with a piece of Distress Watercolor Card stock. I knew that I was going to have a lot of moisture, so I wanted to use a thicker card stock. I used three Distress Oxide Colors ; Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, and Salty Ocean. I started in the middle of my card stock with a circular motion and my ink blending tool with Picked Raspberry, then Fossilized Amber, and then Salty Ocean. It looks as if I used more colors, but when inking the blue onto of yellow, you get green, and the yellow into the pink you get orange :)
Once I was happy with my blending, I got out my stencil. The exact stencil I used has been discontinued, but I highly recommend getting the Radiating Rays stencil from MFT. I plan on getting this one too! Then, I used This glitter paste from Viva, or you could also use Tonic Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. I spread that out as even as possible with my palette knife, and then removed my stencil, and set my panel aside to dry for several hours. Make sure you clean up your work surface and your tools used because you don't want that paste to dry onto your tools or stencil.
Once dried, I actually cut my panel in half to make two cards. I die cut a piece of Guava card stock and white card stock. I used the Blueprints 27 biggest frame die, to create my frame for my focal panel, and then used the Stitched Cloud Backdrop to create an extra something to my focal panel. Before adhering anything together, I stamped down my sentiment which comes from the Sending Love stamp set from Right At Home with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I adhered everything with liquid glue, and then adhered my panel onto a white card base.
I loved how I could get two cards out of this one panel. I created this one specifically for today's post, but here is the second card in case you were wondering
Thank you all for stopping by, and I will see you right back here next Monday. Have a great week!
