Special You.

Today it is raining again, which makes for a gloomy day. To brighten my day I decided to join in with one of my favourite challenges, being the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.

This is my inspiration piece for my card today.

From 100lb Accent white card stock I cut a piece at 4.25 x 5.5. Using my Stay-tion I attached my white card stock to the board with rolled up tape, then topped it off with my stencil which I secured with the magnets.

From a square piece of photocopy paper I die cut a circle using my Spellbinders Nested Circles die. With my Life Changing Brushes and Ink on 3 Atelier Ink in Peacock Blue. I stencilled on the colour around the circle keeping the colour very light. I then did the interior of the circle adding several layers of ink to get the darker colour.

When finished I trimmed the piece to 5 x 3.75. I then trimmed two pieces of Cobalt Mirror cardstock, one for the front of my card and one for the interior.

I spritzed the ink left on the stencil with water and added another piece of 5 x 3.75 to the stencil, rubbing the back of the cardstock so the ink would transfer, then set it aside to dry. I did not keep the stencil on the cardstock very long as the water would cause some bubbling, hence the pattern is light.

To put it all together I attached the mirror cardstock on an angle and added the stencil cardstock, also on an angle. I did the same for the inside of the card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gina K Designs Elegant Asters set using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne. For the outside I stamped the “you” from the Gina K Designs Boho Flowers set using the VersaFine Clair ink in Paradise, then die cut using the coordinating die and my Gemini Jr.

In the centre of the flower inside the circle I added a Red Berry Crystal Drop. I then added splatters using Nuvo Midas Touch Shimmer Pen and added the shimmer to the “You” sentiment as well for more sparkle. I then attached the “you” to the card front using foam squares.

I do hope you have enjoyed this card and wish to thank you for dropping by. Following are Affiliate Links for the products that I have used for this card, at no extra cost to you.
