Good Evening to you! Thank you for visiting our blog today.
Today’s inspiration from Kim Robertson is one of the stunning cards she demo’d at Ally Pally…
This card uses the same techniques as the tags we made at Ally Pally (my tags tutorial can be found HERE)
This photo was taken before I added lots more glass glitter in the waves, and the black little flat back sparkles in the corners to finish off.
So to start….
Stamp the script from the Revolution Set randomly how you would like it on the background, I had mine in the two opposite corners as shown here.
Next I inked the background with the colours of my choice , opposite on the colour wheel and infinitely blendable too, I added two layers as always, go back to the post on the tags for more step by steps on how to blend inks and why two layers etc.
I then added tone on tone inking and some flicked water as before and blotting the ink away to leave rings and shapes to fit in with splashing water.
Here is the small piece of UTEE with the small Fleur de Lys pressed into it when molten, to leave this wonderful indentation to which I added some black archival ink to the centre and rubbed over with some Treasure Gold wax to pick up the high points.
I stamped my sentiment onto card and inked the edges, and mounted it onto black card. I also added grey and blue around the lettering to make the writing really stand away from the card, like a shadow.
I added each item to the card with foam to make the card a little more dimensional.
Lastly I went back in with my trick with the glitters in the wavy corners to really make some wet looking sparkles appear out of the waves with the white horses of the sea.
Here are the stamps sets used…
Ok lovelies, see you soon
