Today was a day where inspiration hit and cards just happened one after the other. I decided to post a couple today and the others tomorrow as they are all rather bright and full of colour and I don't want to cause too much bling overload.
This first card is all Stamplorations from the stencil I used to the diecut word.
First I have blended Tim Holtz distress inks in a nice rainbow blend of colours but I did have to cut a little bit of the colour off when I put the card together so some colour was lost but not much.
After blending the colours I used Bo-bunny clear glitter paste to get this fantastic sparkly look. I didn't want to overdo it on the front of the card so I only did a strip and attached that to the front of the card then cut out white strips of card and added foam tape to the back and added each side.
I wanted a big sentiment to go with this so chose the 'congrats' one and diecut in white and offset it then added another layer slightly offset on the white in gold. I love the look and it sure doesn't need any sequins or dots to finish it off.
My next piece of inspiration was this piece of alcohol ink piece I made after setting up my colour charts. I played around with some of my blues and lots of blending solutions a couple of days ago.
Today I was looking at it and thinking water, waves, sea so looking through my images and up pops this little lady, she's perfect and from Tiddy Inks.
I copic coloured, fussy cut and threw her down randomly and where she landed just felt perfect to me so thats where I stuck her. I then cut the piece of yupo to the size of my card and attached it.
Isn't she fabulous, don't you feel as though she is swimming right at you, rolling through the waves. I thought of maybe a sentiment like WAHOOOOO or Coming for youuuuu then thought no just 'smile' is perfect.
Its what she looks like she is doing as she's swimming towards you. Smiling and ready to say 'hello'
