Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week! Today I have a bright and happy card to share with you featuring a couple of newer release items from Paperie Ink and Spellbinders.
I fell in love with the entire last release Paperie Ink had and splurged on Mother’s Day to pre-order myself 2 of the new sets. This one – Hello Sunshine – had me immediately wanting a pool to put them in. Well, at almost the same time, Spellbinders had a new release and I picked up Pool with a View on my next ScrapbookPal order.
To create this card, I started with the background, inking picked raspberry and mermaid lagoon distress inks on a panel and spritzing it with water. Then I die cut the inner part of the pool and inked it with mermaid lagoon and spritzed it too. I die cut the outer part of the pool from gray cardstock and lightly inked the edge with black soot for a little dimension and moved on to my images.
I chose a couple of critters and flowers from Hello Sunshine and paired them with leaves from Toucan Party. I colored these with my copics and used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out. Then I started working on placement.
Once I had an idea, I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment and started adhering images with liquid glue. I find this works best with panels that have been inked with distress or distress oxides.
Finally, I moved on to finishing touches which were pretty simple. I added white gel pen accents throughout the images, glossy accents to the noses and flower centers and Unicorn Stickles to other flower centers. I also used black glaze pen on the bunny’s eyes to help them shine a little.
This card has me dreaming for summer and a week by a pool with no adulting necessary! Maybe someday. Haha!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
