Oh my goodess friends! I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited to share with you that I have joined the Pink & Main Design Team! This is thrilling and going to be such a fun adventure! Today is my first card share over on their blog and I’m really excited about it! They just had a new release and I’ve been playing with the new goodies. I hope you love it!
To create my card, I started by inking a panel with distress oxides in blueprint sketch, picked raspberry and mustard seed. Then I used distress ink in black soot over the whole thing, using the mandala stencil. I spritzed it all with water and then ran it through my die cut machine with the larger of the new Beautiful slimline dies.
Next, I stamped and colored my images from Day of the Dead with my copics and then used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. I arranged them on my panel how I wanted and then adhered them with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares.
I didn’t want my sentiment to distract from the cool stenciled background or that cutie boy and his guitar so I kept it simple. I stamped and heat embossed it in white on black cardstock and trimmed it into a strip. I popped it up with foam squares. I adhered the whole panel to a black card base measuring 3.5×8.5 inches with foam tape for a little dimension. Then I moved on to finishing touches.
For those, I added some white gel pen accents to some of the images and then glossy accents to the candle flames and some details on the boy and his guitar. Last, I used liquid glue and adhered a scattering of confetti bits from my stash throughout the design. I really love how this finishes it off and makes the card feel complete.
I hope you enjoyed today’s share and found some inspiration to create something wonderful. Remember all the new goodies are for sale in the shop, so head over and check it all out!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
