CAS-ual Fridays July Release Day 3
Hello! So what do you think of the release so far? We have so many more beautiful stamps and dies to show you, I know you'll love them! Today we're featuring 2 new stamp sets, Partridge in a Pear Tree and Starlequin.
To make my card I started by stamping one of the patterns from Starlequin to cover my white card base. Next I used some post it tape to mask off sections of the background and do some ink blending. The ink colors I used, top to bottom, are PTI Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry, Autumn Rose, and Raspberry Fizz. I added some water drops (notice they worked on the Berry Sorbet and Autumn Rose but not so well on the other 2 colors? That's because they're different ink formulations and not all inks work well with that technique). To color the partridge in a pear tree I used PTI Vintage Jadite ink with some water added to it to watercolor the pears, gold watercolor for the leaves, and Gathered Twig distress ink for the trunk. I stamped the birds body with PTI Berry Sorbet. I stamped the sentiment on black card stock and embossed with white. To finish this card I added a few gold sequins. I love how this turned out. I got my inspiration for the background colors from Pinterest. I've been enjoying searching for unique color combos there lately!
