Hello everyone! I hope your weekend is going well. I’m stopping in today to share a different style card than I typically play around with. The stamp set I chose was a Christmas gift that I was so excited to play with. It’s called Succulent Banner from Trinity Stamps. It’s in the Last Chance section now so you’ll want to stop by and grab one before they’re gone. There are quite a few fabulous sets at great prices so…treat yourself! 🙂
For today’s card, I started by heat embossing the image with copper embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I watercolored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a waterbrush pen. I stamped my sentiment after the coloring was dry and then die cut it out.
Then I started to work on the background. I dug in my stash for stencils that I felt went with the succulent image and found some older Stampin’ Up stencils I don’t think I’ve ever used. (Crafter problems. Oy!) I took the first one and used a light gray pigment ink with my blending buddy brush on black cardstock. Then I took the second one and used champagne Metallix Gel on that. Last I took pearl and gold watercolors and splattered them over the whole thing.
Once all of those layers were dry, I popped my image up with foam squares and this card is ready to go!
There are so many sentiments in this set that you could swap them out for a whole set of cards for any occasion! And I am in LOVE with that image. I hope you enjoyed today’s card.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
