Welcome, today I wanted to make a card for my Sister-in-Law who is struggling with health issues. I wanted it to be bright and cheery and spring-like…since Mother Nature is not cooperating in our neck of the woods, I had to make it happen with art. 🙂
I used my big floral stamp set from Sunsational Stamps, you can find their shop Here. I stamped it several times in VersaMark clear ink onto Ranger Watercolor Paper and heat set it with fine white embossing powder. I then used a rainbow assortment of my Distress Oxide Inks and added them here and there. While it was still wet I splattered a couple of the colors on by flicking a paintbrush. I wanted it to spread a bit and look all dreamy.
I stamped Big Hug from a retired Close To My Heart set and heat set it with fine white embossing powder as well. I cut it into a tag shape, punched a small hole in the side and added twine I colored with alcohol markers to match the coral color of one of the inks and the card base.
I layered the panel onto black cardstock, added it to the card base, popped up the sentiment with foam squares, added iridescent sequins and called it done.
