Best Day Yet

Friday, October 5, 2018
Hi friends! It's been a busy week here on the blog. Today I'm sharing another card I made when I was testing out the Colorbox Dyestress Blendable Inks from Clearsnap. I love how this card turned out.

The flower is from the beautiful Petite Posies stamp set from Shimmerz. I stamped it on smooth Bristol with intense black ink, then made a mask to do a little detail ink blending coloring with the scuba and moonstone inks on the flower and stem. I kept masking off areas until I got everything colored the way I liked. Then I made a new mask to cover the flower image while I worked on the background.

The background is sponged with palomino, cattail and graphite inks, then I flicked water droplets over it to lift some ink. I finished the background off with some splatters in the same neutral inks.  The sentiment is from the Simply Enjoy stamp set and stamped in scuba and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Isn't that the perfect sentiment for a birthday (or any day, for that matter)? Next I added some highlights to the flower with a white gel pen and a wink of stella clear glitter pen. Some tiptop taupe matting, a bit of string and a teeny rhinestone finish this sweet card off.

Today is the final day of the Shimmerz fall promo. They carry some fabulous stamp sets and beautiful paints and sprays. What's your favorite product?
