There’s Those Blues and Greens Again

Don’t you find that you gravitate towards some colors when designing cards?  These happen to be the first colors I grab; and if I don’t stop myself they would find their way onto all my cards.  Sometimes I will make a concerted effort to put them back and try something else, but not today *smile*.

Playing along with a couple of challenges over at Splitcoast today, both of which call for stencils.

I placed the star stencil on my paper and then stamped the alphabet stamp through the openings in the stencil by just “walking” my fingers over the stamp.  Then, I used a mini ink blending tool to sponge two of the colors through the stencil over top of what I’d just stamped.

A simple stamped sentiment and some strategically placed sequins and done!  Strategically you ask?…well there were a couple of “uh ohs” on my card and magically the sequins came to the rescue…whew!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink:  Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Peeled Paint Distress Ink, Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps:  Wendy Vecchi from A to Z and Altenew Superscript
All the other stuff:  Dylusions stencil, Ranger mini ink blending tool, Simon Says Stamp sequins, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, adhesive

Challenges:
TLC495 Splitcoast Stampers stencil stamping
CAS286 Splitcoast Stampers use a stencil

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. Great colours and techniques Lee-Anne. Don't you love little embellishments for those uh-oh moments! I am such a messy crafter that I usually have ink or something that I don't want somewhere on my work lol. I really love that big bold stamp too! xx

  2. Another great card – and as a non card maker I actually understood how you did this one! Tee Hee. And of course, when in doubt, use a smattering of sequins. Lovely.

  3. LOVE this design and technique Lee-Anne! … oh, and the colors 🙂 Love your “strategically” placed sequins – perfect as always. I don't know if you've noticed, but I've added sequins on my last two cards 🙂 … all because of you! Loll xx
