Hey there, everyone! Broni Holcombe here to show you how I made this bright and fun card for my son-in-law's birthday!
I started out with a piece of white cardstock, my non-stick craft sheet, some TCW 6x6 stencils and some Dylusions ink sprays in Vibrant Turquoise and Fresh Lime. Love those colors!
Instead of spraying directly onto the cardstock with the ink spray, I spritzed it onto my craft sheet.
I wanted better control of where the color went and I wanted a softer stenciled look, so I used a baby wipe to dab up the Vibrant Turquoise ink from the craft sheet and then onto the cardstock through the Mini Numbers Collage stencil.
Next, I wanted to add just a little darker navy blue to the piece since I knew I was using a navy card base. I lightly and randomly stamped on some backgrounds, a grid pattern and a script pattern, in navy blue ink.
To add a little more of the navy color, I decided to sponge on the same navy blue ink using an ink blending tool and my Mini Confetti stencil.
At this point I liked the background just the way it was, so I added it to my card base. Then I stamped the gentleman image from the fabulous Dylusions Mini Couture stamp set onto white cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink, and colored it with these Copic markers:
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the "hey", then colored along the left edge with the BG11 marker.
To finish the card, I added these elements as well as a couple of buttons laced with twine using Scor-Tape and foam mounting tape.
And here's the finished card again.
That's it for me, today! I hope you enjoyed the post, and I hope you'll go forth and Spray, Dab, Stamp and Sponge!!
