It's Color Fuser time! The first Monday of each month, the Color Fusers hop with a fun color challenge. I hope you hop along with us today to see how we each used today's colors.
I chose to make a simple card using the Queen Anne's Lace stamp set, but spruced it up with all kinds of shimmer and shine!
This stamp set has a nice focal piece, and some perfect sentiments. I really like the mixed fonts included.
The Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog is just amazing! It is sooo shimmery, and makes a great layer piece. It anchors the color on this project. A little Wink of Stella helped carry that shimmer, and the adhesive-backed Blue Gems provide the perfect subtle accent.
A sprinkle of color was added by flicking the brush tip of the Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker on the marker lid.
To create this card:
- apply a Balmy Blue watercolor wash on Fluid 100 watercolor paper, and allow to dry
- cut a 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" piece of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper
- cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, score at 5 1/2"
Trim the watercolor paper down to 3 3/4" x 5". Stamp the floral outline in Night of Navy, stamped off once. Stamp inside of flower in Balmy Blue ink, stamped off once. Stamp sentiment in lower corner in Balmy Blue ink. Using the Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker, flick the brush tip on the cap to splatter color over the flowers. Layer the watercolor paper onto the glimmer paper, then adhere to card front with dimensionals. Add Wink of Stella accents to the flowers. Tie a bow in Snowflake Splendour ribbon, and adhere to floral stems with a glue dot. Embellish with Blue Gems as desired.
Stampin' Tip: The new Water Painters from the Annual catalog are amazing! The set of 3 includes a wide tip brush, which works awesome for applying a watercolor wash to a bigger surface. When I say a wide brush, I mean just that! No streaks or hard lines to blend with this gem. They are a must for sure!
I hope you enjoyed seeing the Queen Anne's Lace stamp set today. It made this card come together in a snap!
Thanks for stopping by!
