I hope you give this card a try and think about doing it in various colors. I started here in blues and did a card a while back called Young Vermillion and the background was done greens.
I sincerely appreciate you stopping by and I hope I’ve inspired you to give it a try. Have a Blessed Day!!! Brandy
Sizes and Dimensions
Cut a 5-1/2? x 8-1/2? piece of Pool Party Cardstock and score your Pool Party Cardstock at 2-1/8? and by 4-1/4?.
Use a stamping sponge and begin sponging color on your Pool Party base. I started with Island Indigo, then Tempting Turquoise and I finished up with Pacific Point.
Tip: Be sure you add your colors in layers. Remember less is more… you can always add more color and saturation but you can’t take it away.
Cut a 3″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. This is for layering.
Cut a 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Garden Green Cardstock and layer it on top of the Whisper White piece.
Cut a 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock and this piece you’ll stamp your image on.
I stamped my image in StazOn Black and the sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point.
Tip: I used StazOn Black ink so that the black would not bleed into my markers. Remember, StazOn Ink is a permanent ink.
Using the various inks and blender pen to add color to your image. Note: You can use markers, an Aqua Painter etc.
Tip: Be sure to clean your Blender Pen off in between colors.
Tip: Use one of your Stampin’ Up! acrylic blocks to drop the ink on. This is your color palette used when coloring.
I used a two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter to add the sparkle.
You can finish this card with an embellishment if you’d like. You can also stamp the inside along with the envelope for finished stationary!
