Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Petal Palette Bundle – When In Doubt Add Glitter
I’m not a girly girl, I’m not crazy about pink or bling or glitter and all that jazz, but I came up with this idea accidentally (you can read about it here) and completely fell in love.
- Smoky Slate cardstock: 11-6/8″ x 4-1/8″ scored in half at 5-7/8″ (29.7 x 10.5 cm scored in half at 14.8 cm)
- Bermuda Bay cardstock: 3-15/16″ x 5-9/16″
- Shimmery White cardstock: 3-7/8″ x 5-″
- a piece of White Vellum and Silver Glimmer Paper for die cutting
- Smoky Slate banner piece: 2-1/2″ x 11/16″
- Bermuda Bay banner piece: 2-1/4″ x 1″
First, I created my watercolour background. I stamped roses from Petal Palette Stamp Set in Basic Black Archival ink, which is perfect to work with watercolours. I’ve used Bermuda Bay Ink Pad to colour in all my flowers. For leaves, I’ve used Old Olive with a hint of Lemon Lime Twist Ink Pad. Next, I sponged the whole panel using Smoky Slate Ink Pad and Stamping Sponge.
My favourite technique with a sponged background is to flick water all over it and let ink to react with water to create a distressed look.
I’ve used Embossing Buddy, antistatic pouch, to remove the static or any oil from the panel, flicked some more water on the background, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat set it. Added more sprinkles/embossing until happy.
I reheat my embossing on the panel, cover it with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, tap off the excess and heat set it again. Don’t you just love these ‘dazzling’ speckles?!
I adhered my background panel to Bermuda Bay mat and next to Smoky Slate card base. Now to jazz it up a little.
I’ve used Petals & More Thinlits Dies to die cut few elements for my card. I die cut two branches: one from vellum and one from Silver Glimmer Paper. I also die cut a filigree banner from Silver Glimmer Paper.
This square frame was actually a leftover from a different project (lying around) and it was just perfect fit.
I played a bit with a placing of all my elements, and once I was happy I adhered them to the card.
I am really chuffed how this card turned out. Such a shame it’s so hard to photograph and to show all the sparkle in the photo. But below you can see a ‘boomerang’ from my Instagram from when I created the background piece. The shimmer is just mesmerising!!
I'm not a girly girl – never been and never will. But I love to experiment. Especially in my tiny stampin' cave ? The last card from the bedazzled series is on my blog today ?? #annastampincave #stampinup #papercraft #handmadecards #kartki #rekodzielo #rękodzieło #scrapbookcard #demonstratorcoventry
