Hi crafters! Popping in today with a super quick card I made last night. I received my first ever Papertrey Ink order for which I had teamed up with a crafty friend from France. Shipping costs to Europe are a b**** so this was really convenient and I think we both are super happy.
Anyhow, I couldn’t not play with my new goodies, especially since I had been lusting after these sets for quite a while now. But I also wanted to do some coloring for #TheDailyMarker30Day2 challenge, so I created a colorful background on some white card stock by simply laying down some color with my Copics. No rhyme or reason, and it also didn’t need to blend perfectly since the die cut would obscure most of it.
I added some Wink of Stella on top of the die cut, and only later realized I needed some more contrast. So I die cut the word die from masking paper, used additional masking paper to make sure the openings were covered, too, and then stamped the matching word stamp slightly offset in grey pigment ink. This created this nice shadow effect that makes the word stand out more.
And of course I had to add some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for additional shine. I opted for light and subtle colors so I wouldn’t take away from the colors peeking through the die cut. And that’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by and see you again real soon!
