Hi Folks! Today, I am sharing a quick make card that I made using a stamp set from Docrafts and a few of the colours of Distress Oxides. I have provided a list of the supplies at the end of the blog post. I worked on a 6×6 inch card blank, with a decorative panel measuring 14.8cm x 14.8cm. So, let’s get into it.
Firstly, I blended the Distress Oxides horizontally up the card panel from yellow at the bottom to blue at the top. I added some water sprinkles and blotted off the excess, to give the background more texture.
I then stamped the meadow, flowers and dragonfly stamps, using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide. Using a waterbrush pen and some of the same ink I filled in the flowers to make them look more solid.
I stamped the grass image from the set over the top, using black Versafine, before adding some butterflies and dragonflies. I then coloured the flowers using the gold Wink of Stella; for the butterflies and dragonflies, I used the silver Wink of Stella and added some highlights using the Gelly Roll pen.
Finally, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in gold, before edging the panel with VersaMark ink and heat embossing this with the gold powder as well; before sticking the panel to the card blank.
This card was actually quite a quick make and, by adding 2 layers to the grass area (and making one paler), it gives the illusion of more dimension.
