Hey everyone! Hope you are well. I have another card using Simon Says Stamp’s new Crafty Hugs release collection. I used the new Radiant Hearts stencil and So Far So Good stamp set to make this card. I spent a lot of time on the Radiant Hearts stencil background and pretty happy with how it turned out.
I used distress inks in muted colours on the Radiant Hearts stencils. The colours I used are Scattered Straw, Dried marigold, Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose. I also added shadows using Weathered Wood distress ink by slightly offsetting the stencil. Then using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, I added more depth to the colours and highlights using white gel pen. Love how the Radiant Hearts background turned out. The hearts look 3D. I then stamped the sentiment from So Far So Good stamp set over the stencil background using Simon’s black ink. I used MISTI to stamp and get good coverage. I debated between keep it one layer card or trim the panel to foam adhere to card base base. In the end, I trimmed the panel and adhered on black card base to add contrast border which ties with the black bold sentiment. A few Moonshine sequins to finish off the card.
Stencils are wonderful. So much can be done using them. They are also budget and storage friendly. Love them. The font of the sentiment on CZ design sentiment stamp sets are my favourite. Bold and crisp.
Well, thank you to taking the time to visit my post today. Have a wonderful day. Until next time….
