Hello crafty friends!
Do you like using washi tape on your cards? I struggle but I always like a challenge so I decided this stamp was good to give it a go! I really wanted to use them with this cool stamp.
To start with, I used Photoshop to combine the All Star boot on with the Night Garden A2 panel. I thought adding a few little flowers would give the boot a lovely touch! Once I was happy with that, I printed it twice onto 250gsm cardstock and coloured them with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The colours I used are as follows:
- Teals: GT1, GT2, GT3
- Yellows: CT4, CT3, CT2, CT1
- Greys: IG2, IG4
- Oranges: OR3
- White gel pen
To create the backgrounds, I used a set of washi tapes I bought on a trip to The Works some months ago. I had promised myself I wouldn’t buy any more but… I couldn’t help myself, the colours were too pretty! And to be fair, it is the second time I used them on a project, so I don’t feel thaaat guilty!
On the teal background card, I splattered some white gouache to give it a bit more interest – it is amazing how splatters and embellishments at the end of a card always fix my layout issues – do you find that too?
I used my dymo to create the sentiment on the first card and I used a super cool sentiments stamp set from Paper Smooches fro the second, which I heat embossed using white embossing powder. I mounted the panels on an A2 panel and used double sided foam to adhere the boot to the front panels giving it some dimension.
Sending you hugs,
