Spring Break means lots of fun card making! I made two cards today. They have similar techniques and design details.
Card One: Alicorn and Sparkles
Card Two: Fairy and Sparkles
Size: A2 cards
Extra Details: I started by creating two card bases from water color paper. Next, I did some ink blending. I used a circle mask for the alicorn card and a triangle-ish mask for the fairy card. I used three colors of Distress Ink to make the rainbow on each card. I added some water flicks to add some distressing to my inked backgrounds
For the alicorn card, I die cut a stitched hillside from some more water color paper. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and clear heat embossed it. Using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, I blended just a bit of green to the area where the alicorn would be standing. I adhered the hillside with two layers of fun foam in the middle and just double sided tape at the edges. I really like the dimension that created.
For the fairy card, I masked off the rainbow and used some cloud border die cuts as masks to create the rest of the background. I used Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I added some stars with white embossing powder to the rainbow area. I made a mistake when stamping the sentiment on this card. Apparently, white embossing powder and black ink do not mix well. To cover my mistake, I stamped a cloud and re-stamped the sentiment and used clear embossing powder this time. I added a second cloud to help cover my mistake.
Next, I stamped the alicorn and fairy on a scrap of water color paper. I clear embossed these images also. I used Crayola Fine Line Markers and a water brush to water color these images. Once they were dry, I fussy cut them out leaving a small white border.
I adhered the alicorn and fairy to each card using dimensional glue dots. I also added some silver glitter stars and sequins to the rainbow areas. I love the way these cards turned out.
