This is the card I made, CASE’d from Jackie Bolhuis. It uses a background technique on Glossy Paper (so glad we’re carrying this again!) called polished stone. It’s done by saturating a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol, then putting drops of reinker on it and dabbing it onto glossy paper. The alcohol makes the ink spread, but it dries quickly so that it doesn’t get muddy. For this project we used Melon Mambo, Powder Pink and Calypso Coral inks.
The focal image is from the new stamp set, Crafting Forever. It’s stamped in Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White cardstock. Did you know that this is a good choice when you want to do some quick watercoloring without using Watercolor Paper? Its coating holds up to the water and painting better than Whisper White. We used a variety of inks to color in the image, and cut it out with the largest oval from Stitched Shapes Framelits. It’s matted with the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. The sentiment is also stamped with Archival Black ink. Be careful when stamping on the glossy cardstock that your stamp doesn’t slip!
