It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a Home Sweet Home Challenge!
I was practically giddy when I saw this week's Thursday Challenge inspiration!
When I started on today's card, I focused on the color and was inspired to first create a color palette using our Shimmery White card stock. As I knew I was going to use water to create the look I was going for, I knew the Shimmery White card stock would hold up well. Here's what I did...
Misted Shimmery White Card Stock Tips:
- Using Sponge Daubers, sponge ink colors randomly onto Shimmery White card stock (101910)
- Melon Mambo
- Pumpkin Pie
- Pacific Point
- Wet card stock with water using a spray mister.
- Let dry. Speed up the drying process with a Heat Tool
From there, the card came together rather nicely. Using the new Occasions Catalog Butterflies Thinlit Dies, cut three butterflies from the Misted Shimmery White Card Stock (I actually got 6 butterflies from one piece of 4-1/4" x 5-1/2").
The greeting is from a free Sale-a-Bration stamp set called, Simply Wonderful (6 greetings and 1 flower image). It's heat embossed with Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder. Then colored with Blendabilities (medium markers of Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi).
I just have to say - I love the way the card turned out. But I especially LOVE the Blendabilities colored embossed greeting. On the black card stock - it just pops!!
Did you know? All of the Blendabilities Marker Colors shown in the Annual Catalog are a FREE Sale-a-Bration choice until March 31st - with a $50 order. Woohoo - build your Blendabilities Collection for free!
I think I nailed this week's challenge. What do you think?
