All the Wishes

Just one week until Christmas!
This card came to be after I did some ink smooshing.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by pressing some Broken China and some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink onto a sheet of acetate.  I sprayed with a generous amount of water, then smooshed my paper into the ink.  It gave a very random looking colourful background.
  • After the ink had dried, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the Holiday Florals Print over the background with some more Blueprint Sketch DOX ink.
  • Next, using my white Posca pen, I coloured in some of the little foliage to lighten it all up.
  • I die cut the sentiment 3 times and glued them together.  
  • I cut a piece of vellum and rounded the corners, then glued the sentiment over that.
  • I glued the stamped panel onto an A2 sized card base, then added the sentiment.
  • Finally, I finished it all off by adding some silver gems.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I love the pretty blues for the smooshed background with the blue inked stamped foliage over the top, and the added white die cut sentiment over the vellum which allows the wonderful background to show through, and the little silver gems finish it perfectly. x

Absolutely gorgeous card Karen, I love the shades of blue and the wonderful stencil in the background, and of course such lovely sentiments as a focus, Kate x

Love the way you put the sentiment die cut on the vellum to give it more separation from the busy background, but not so much it covers up the background completely! Gorgeous card!
