Hello friends and happy Friday! On Wednesday, I mentioned that my mother and I had recently spent a weekend creating and playing with Distress Oxide inks to create backgrounds for future cards. Today's card utilizes another one of those backgrounds and I love, love, love all the blues on this card! Not only is blue my favorite color, but hydrangeas are my favorite flower, so this card makes me so happy.
*A full supply list is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. On a 5 1/4 x 4" piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, I ink blended Distress Oxide inks in Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky. Once the ink dried, I layed the Newton's Nook Designs Music stencil over the ink and added Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer paste to the stencil with a spatula. I peeled off the stencil to reveal the beautiful glittery music note backgound. I let the background dry.
I die cut a white octagon and placed it on the center left of the card. The hydrangea flower is actually a digital stamp from Twinklelane Designs. I printed the flower out on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock and colored it using Copic markers. I fussy cut the flower out and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment in blue ink on white cardstock and punched it out with an oval punch. I adhered the sentiment to the left of the flower using 3M foam adhesive.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card as much as I do! Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
