Hello everyone, Welcome back! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Where I live in Australia, it has been a good weather this week. Not hot during the day with nice breeze and cooler during the evening and night. Hope this continues into the next couple of months. Today I have a card share using Simon Says Stamp’s Hey Bestie collection products. I particularly love the background I created here.
I used the new Love Friendship stamp set to mask, stamp to create a cluster of flowers and leaves on the entire background. Using copic makers in jewel tones, I coloured not just the flowers and leaves also the entire background. I also added highlights using white gel pen. Absolutely love the jewel tone colours. So rich and bright. I added some dots on the dark corners of the background close to the edges of the flower cluster. I trimmed the panel a bit smaller to the card front to show a tiny border when mounted on the card base. I chose back card base because the tiny black border ties in with the black outline of the flower cluster and also the black sentiment strips. The sentiment strips are from Sentiment Strips Reverse Miss You. I trimmed three sentiment into strips and foam mounted them. A few Moonshine sequins to finish off the card. I really love the sentiment strips because it reduces the time it takes to stamp a sentiment or heat emboss the sentiment. Sometimes the background takes a long time to create that you want to complete the card quick and these sentiment strips are so useful.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. Hope you like my card. Have a lovely day!
