Fancy Phrases

All the blues

Todays card was inspired by a piece of mount board I found on the desk and a decision I wanted to play with blue inks… and then I just went with it!

I added inks to the acrylic block, sprayed with water and used it as a stamp. This gave it a fun background. Once it was dry I then added some stamping using a background wooden block stamp.

Then I took the fancy phrases stamp and stamped it using the stamp platform in both the brown and the black archival. This made it quite a dark brown colour as my black archival is very dry.

I used my watercolour pencils to add some more colour to the image.

I decided the Kraft cardstock would make a nice base for the card and also added the sentiment to some leftover cardstock and made a banner.

I know it doesn’t show in the photos but I also added wink of Stella to the flowers in the image to give some sparkle.

To finish off I added the sequins as embellishment and then decided it was done.

Happy crafting!
