I have a couple of cards to share today. For this first card I am playing along with MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge, The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, and Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" Birthday!
I started with MFT card stock in smooth white, limeade, and blu raspberry. I started with a smooth white 4.25 x 5.5 piece of card stock. For both cards I used the MFT Harlequin Stencil using the technique that Barbara from Paper Pursuits showed in her tutorial HERE! For the first card, instead of doing two colors, I masked off to include a base color with four separate colors to comply with The Curtain Calls inspiration photo showcasing so many pretty pastels. I really love this look! I used the Mini Ink Blending Tool along with the Blending Foam Pads and the process went really fast. I used MFT blu raspberry, lemon chiffon, limeade, cotton candy, and grape jelly Premium inks. Once I had the piece stenciled, I die cut with Blueprints 13. I layered a blu raspberry piece die cut with Blueprints 2. Next, I die cut a limeade pierced circle stax. I embossed this circle with the Polka Dot Cover Up. I used some foam mounting tape for added dimension.
I die cut a PI Overflowing Joy die namics and stamped with coordinating PI Overflowing Joy stamp using Hybrid black licorice ink. I colored with copics. I added some foam tape and added her to the pierced circle. For the sentiment, I die cut a smooth white strip using Blueprints 2. I stamped the sentiment from PI Happy Banner. I used some foam dimensionals to add to the card to comply with sketch. I finished with a few clear sequins.
For my second card, I am playing along with Retro Sketch, Just Us Girls, and Stampin' Celebration Inspiration. I chose green as my third color. I love the bold patterns in the inspiration photo, so I went in that direction. As for the technique, I actually made this card first which is why this card uses two colors. I got more adventurous with the second card posted above.
I used the same technique, I used MFT smooth white card stock and field day along with some Momento tuxedo black ink. I love the bold look these two colors have together. I die cut the panel using Blueprints 20 to comply with layered framing in sketch. I added a sentiment using Pierced rectangle stax and Chalkoard Greetings Too stamp set stamped with Hybrid black licorice ink. added some loose white threading and foam mounting tape for added dimension. I finished with a few clear sequins.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
