The card I’m sharing today uses the Vintage Basket Weave stencil in conjunction with distress oxide inks. I chose to color an entire background to create a sort of patterned paper effect. I used a combination of ink that I love that creates a glowing under sea effect. I used Cracked Pistachio in the center, with Peacock Feathers blending in from the edges, then Mermaid Lagoon around the very edges. I layered this over a piece of teal cardstock that magically matched perfectly. Then I created a smaller panel to fit onto the center to layer my images on.
I stamped and colored the cheerleaders from the Happy Track & Field Chapter 2set, using my Stamp Platform and Copic markers. I limited my color choices to similar colors that I used for the background. Giving an almost monochromatic look to the card. Next, I die cute out my cheerleaders and Pom poms using the coordinating Penguin Cuts. Then I heat embossed my sentiment, from the same set, onto black cardstock using white embossing powder. I glued down all of my images and added a few black jewels for some Wow! factor, then mounted it onto my cardbase using Scor Tape. After looking at it a few times I added a black and white bakers twine bow to the top and it gave it just what it needed. Now it’s ready to send off!
I hope you like this inky beauty and thanks for stopping by,
