Take the Moment Card

Hello Everyone and Welcome! Ksenija is here today and I am sharing a project featuring several new products from the latest IndigoBlu release.

Again I created an encouraging card using several brand-new stamps and new English Cottage Artist's Acrylic Paints.

I commenced with stamping Elsie image down in grey archival ink to an oval die cut of rustic paper, distressing the edges with the scissors and Distress inks in Pumice Stone and Old Paper, as well as stencilling some stripes through IndigoBlu mask Texture.

I coloured Elsie's face lightly with Distress markers and moved on to the card panel creation.

I stamped Rain Droplets onto a kraft card panel with brown archival ink and applied Gee-Sso Good! randomly. When Gesso has dried completely, I stamped Anemone from Colour Me series in the upper left corner, the beautiful waves from Light and Sound Borders stamp set in the middle and the trees from Grand Tour III set with black archival ink.

To mask straight borders of the Anemone square stamp I randomly applied texture paste through Texture stencil, removed the mask and sprinkled the pattern with bright yellow embossing powder. When the paste has dried, I heated it until the embossing powder melted.

I watered down new acrylic paints in Lemon Meringue and Marshmallow, coloured the Anemone and the card panel here and there.

To finish the card I heat embossed the sentiment from Floral Fantasy in white embossing powder and cut just several words out. To assemble the card I glued the kraft panel to a rustic card base with a liquid adhesive, taped the oval with a foam tape and glued the sentiment.

I hope you enjoy this project of mine and I inspired you to mix different stamps from the latest IndigoBlu release.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
