One of a Kind

Sunday, January 20, 2019

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Today I am sharing a card that I made for this week's CASology and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenges.

To make this card I started by making cloud masks for the background. I don't own any cloud dies, stamps, or stencils so I sketched my own clouds and cut them out of some blue painter's tape. I knew I would need something different than the masking paper I normally use because I wanted to use the smooshing technique to watercolor with. After I got my masks where I wanted them I added two shades of blue distress ink to an acrylic block, sprayed with a little water, and pressed it down on to the paper. When it was dry I popped it onto a white card base using some foam tape. To finish I die cut and stamped a sentiment and decided to adhere a piece of vellum behind it.

My Supplies:
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words
Dies: Simon Says Stamp Small Hello, My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Stax
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans
Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth, Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White, Papertrey Ink Sheer Basics Vellum Patterned Paper Collection
