Hello everyone! Eloise here today and I'm here to show you my card for the new Sweet Shoppe stamp set. This set is so fun with all the different sweets inside and I had a blast making this card.
To begin my card today I actually started off with the background. I used four colours of Distress Inks along with some thin washi tape and masked off the stripes on my background piece. I then blended two stripes per colour. Once it was blended I carefully removed the washi tape and then used some water on a brush to flick water on top of the ink to give it that water splotch look that I love so much!
Now I was inspired with my colour choices to colour in my images. So I used various Copic Markers to colour in my images in similar colours - or at least the best I could find. I then die cut them out using the coordinating dies.
Now I had to figure out my sentiment. So I die cut the word 'sweet' from the new Sweet Word Die out of some more watercolour paper, the same as the background and used some orangey Distress Ink to colour it and then used the same water flicking technique to match the background also. I also cut the word out of fun foam also so it could be dimensional. Before adhering it to the card I quickly stamped down the rest of my sentiment, I took some black ink and the 'thanks for being so' stamp from the same Sweet Shoppe stamp set and stamped it down in one of the white stripes and then I adhered down my sentiment. I used foam adhesive to adhere my images down in a way I liked.
To finish up my card I adhered my panel onto some fun foam and then onto a grey cardbase. I then took a Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen and added some sparkle onto the images and sentiment and that finished up the card for today.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and got inspired. Make sure you stop by the blog this week to see all the other ladies fabulous cards!
