Hello crafty friends, hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. I am sharing my take on Day 14 Word Die class which was taught by the amazing Laura Bassan.
Sorry for the glare from my light on my glass mat. Using Neenah solar white cardstock I cut out my word using Altenew Big Bold Alphabets. I saw this word Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Greetings and it made me chuckle so thought it would be so much fun as the focal point on my card.
For the first panel I used post it tape and created a border around the card stock , as you can tell by my crooked lines it definitely does not need to be perfect. Using my blender brushes and distress oxides colors Abandoned Coral , Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn I started laying down ink lightly and building up color. When blending with my Oxides I always tap off a little ink before going to the card stock so that i don’t end up with blotches on my panel which does happen and I tend to struggle to fix it.
For the second panel I used the Extra Large Dots stencil by Simon Says Stamp and using the same inks and adding in Picked Raspberry blended the entire panel. After removing the stencil I blended over the panel with what was left on the blender brushes. I embossed 2 sentiments on black card stock using Brutus Monroe Alabaster Ultra Fine embossing powder.
Mounted both panels and added the sentiment. Final touches of ink splatters and some enamel dots from Your Next Stamp. This was such a fun technique. Will definitely be doing it more often. This would be awesome as a personalized card as well.
