It is my second post today, if you are looking for my Newton’s Nook Designs August release Day 1 post, click here.
Now I am back with another sneak peek, this time at a wonderful sentiment set from the August release of Pink and Main. I created a pretty floral encouragement card. Who would not like to get one like this in the mail?
The new Going places stamp set is full of gorgeous sentiments which pair so well with the handwritten ones. I wanted to use the beautiful Thinking of you always stamp set with it, I felt it is a perfect match!
I started with stamping the florals on Bristol Sooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it. You can skip the heat embossing part, I am just impatient to wait for the ink to dry and I love the raised shiny edges. It helps me with my colouring.
Before colouring I masked off the sentiment line with purple tape and applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with a small blending brush for a subtle background colour.
Then I used Tombow markers and a water brush to colour the flowers. I kept the colour family in the blue-green range. I also went back in certain areas with a clear shimmer pen to add some sparkle.
When it was dry, I stamped the sentiment with purple and blue inks and cut the panel down. I matted it with a Stitched Rectangle cut from blue cardstock and adhered it to a white top folding card base. I finished it off with a couple of iridescent jewels.
I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek at another gorgeous sentiment set. All new goodies will be available tomorrow, 20/08! Until next time, happy crafting!
