Hello there. I’m excited to be guest designing (GD) today at The Color Hues (TCH) for their challenge #20 - Aqua and Black.
This is such a versatile and beautiful colour combo. I used a new stamp set from Altenew (ALT) called Fairy Tales Florals stamp set along with their Caps Bold Alphabet and Bold Numbers die sets to create my card.
Started by stamping the floral images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a stitched rectangle panel die cut from Xpress It cardstock. Did some “loose” colouring with Copic markers (by loose I mean I didn’t bother with blending). 😂 I then filled in the background with a black Copic marker. I wish I had the coordinating die for this step because it would have been a lot easier and more ink efficient to die cut out the florals, colour the white border black, then adhere onto a black panel. Oh wel. 🤷🏻♀️
Next, the letters and numbers were die cut three times from Stampin’ Up! (SU!) Pool Party cardstock to be stacked for dimension. Black ink was lightly applied to the bottom of the top layer before covering them with VersaMark ink and heat embossing with clear glitter embossing powder. Love me some sparkle. 😉 Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.
I want to thank Nancy and TCH team for having me GD. To check out the cards the team have created to inspire you, head to the challenge post HERE. Hope to see you in the gallery. Thank you for stopping by.
