I’m back with another card today. This time, I’m joining in for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge 108. The color palette is awesome!
To start my card, I grabbed the Typewriter Text background from MFT. I used clear Embossing Ink and Alabaster Embossing Powder from Brutus Monroe to heat set it. I love my Wagner heat tool for this. I did swipe off some of the powder from the bottom of my panel before I heat set it, so that it would appear as if the bottom of the panel was the ground of my scene.
Once my heat embossing was done, I grabbed a few colors of Distress ink. I used Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, and Peacock Feathers. I used these to form a gradient or ombre look on my background. I trimmed my panel down to 3.75 inches, but left the length at 5.5 inches.
I stamped out the adorable little boy from Puddle Jumper and colored him with Copic markers. I used a white gel pen to add a few accents as well. I used scissors to fussy cut him out and then picked out a few coordinating images from the Rain or Shine stamp set. These sets go perfectly together and I love how you can mix and match the images. I used my Copic markers again to add some details and then adhered my little puddle jumper to the card front.
I used black cardstock and white embossing powder for my sentiment. How sweet is that? 100%, that’s how cute! I popped my sentiment panel up on foam for dimension and added a little fish tail banner end on one side. I finished off my card with a few clear sequins in various sizes. I hope you love this card as much as I do!
Hugs and love to you all,
