Shining Brightly

Gorgeous card created by Elina Stromberg.

Elina started by stamping the lightbulb image on heavy watercolour paper, and covered the edges with masking fluid. The masking fluid protected the lightbulb when she started adding yellow and orange watercolours on the background. To add more texture on the background, once the watercolour was dry Elina used yellow ink and a mask to draw light beams around the lightbulb.

Elina finished the card by colouring the lightbulb with water soluble crayons and white gesso, and heat embossed the ‘Shine Bright’ text on the card front.
