Hi, friends! I'm here with another fun card using darling stamps from the Great Impressions online store to brighten your Monday and start your week off right! Today, I'm sharing a card that was inspired by my Scandinavian heritage...
Here's my inspiration~
I LOVE the way these colors look on the dark background, and I adore the use of a repeated dot pattern. Those were my inspirations when creating this card. Take a peek...
The image, H251 Tall Tulips, was the perfect choice for this technique. I heat embossed it in white onto black cardstock. I then did a white ink wash onto the middles of the image. I took a colored pencil and colored over the white, then around the image. The last setp was to add the dots with a silver Sharpie marker.
The sentiment, one of the sayings from E791 Sweet Sentiments, was heat embossed in white onto vellum. I added it to the card using dimensional foam. The faceted gems cover those up. ;)
To tie everything together, I added more dots as a border around the panel. I also decided to add some purple glitter paper to my card base for added texture and shine.
I LOVE the way this turned out! I adore the effect that this technique creates--don't you? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)
Thank you for stopping by, friends! That's all for me today, but I'll be back next soon with another creation using stamps from the Great Impressions store. I hope you join in our current challenge, and, if you use Great Impressions stamps, link them up in our Customer Gallery, too! HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
