Say…

Hello there!

Today I’d like to share a card with you using my favourite technique – embossing resist.  First thing first, the card:

To start, I used Altenew Capture Moments stamp set (link takes you to Seven Hills Crafts Online Store), stamped the camera image randomly on a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb card with embossing ink, then sprinkled white embossing powder all over it and heat set it.  I did this in stages to make sure I didn’t overlap the images.

Then I used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and my mini blending tool, heavy-handedly covered the entire card with the ink, I even went back and forth a few times.  I then sprayed the panel with water, let it sit for a few seconds then dabbed off with a dry kitchen towel.  I love the water mark look almost bokah effect of the background.

I die cut some letters (say cheese )on a piece of orangy/redish card, I thought this sentiment would go quite well with the card.  But those letters were rather big, so I adhered ‘say…’ with some foam adhesive on the card front, then ‘cheese’ on the inside.  I coated all the letters with my shimmer pen, LOVE the subtle sparkles.

Thank you for stopping by today.  As a reward (lol), I’m going to show you some background that I’ve been working on, heavily inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s recent cards, can you tell (haha, so original…).

Hopefully very soon, these will be turned into cards.

That’s all for today.

Take care.

    What a gorgeous card! I love that background, and you’re right about the bokeh effect of the water splashes… yummy! It’s a super design and the bold lettering really complements it, especially with the sparkle on the letters which gives a lovely lift. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Seven Hills Crafts 🙂
