Why hello there, so happy you stopped by! I have a card to share with you today that I made for 2 challenges, Winnie & Walter's The Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia No. 4/Spectrum, and Virginia's View Challenge #22 All About Colors.
To make this card I started by using a sponge dauber and some white pigment ink which I applied through Winnie & Walter's Madison Creative Screenings stencil onto Kraft card stock. I wish I'd taken a picture so you could see that step but I didn't. All of the stencil openings were filled with the white ink though if you can picture that. I waited until the next day to add the color so that I knew the white pigment ink was completely dry (you could also hit it with your heat tool, you just want to make sure it's dry). I placed the stencil back on the paper but this time I shifted it slightly so that some of the white pigment ink would show though. I believe this technique is called "ghosting". Next I applied a rainbow of distress inks to my card using an ink blending tool. The "colors" covered over most of the white area so it mutes them a bit, giving a very soft look. I die cut several roses and leaves using Winnie & Walter's In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways. You can't see it in this picture but for the solid bottom layer of the roses I used white glitter paper, it looks so gorgeous in real life! I cut 4 of the word "congrats" (also from Winnie & Walter), glued them together to create depth, and then topped it off with some glossy accents. Before I attached the roses and sentiment to my card I added some white paint splatters, I think this always adds so much to a colorful card like this. I finished my card with some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins. I do love how this turned out and I think it will make a perfect wedding card.
