Wishing You Happiness

Hello Crafty Folks,

Today I am here with a single layered card. Clean and simple, its size is 5.25* 7.25 inches. This is a very basic card where I have stamped the floral images and water coloured them using distress inks. I added some water to each image and then added the colours, let them flow and mix to create beautiful shading on each flower and leaf. Then I added shadow effect with a light grey sketch pen. This is a good way to add dimension to images in a single layered card. Then I stamped the sentiment. I stuck the card front onto a red cardstock and then pasted it to the card base using foam tape to add dimension. Topped it up with some sequins to add some interest to the card. Hope you like the card.

  1. So simple but so pretty! Did you hear emboss so the colors wouldn't run? Just wondering how you did it! Also with distress inks so you just push some ink on a surface and use water to pick up and put on paper?? TIA

    1. Thank You. No I did not heat emboss it, I just stamped the image. Next time I will surely try heat embossing the image before colouring it. And yes, I smooshed the distress inks onto a acrylic block and added water to it for colouring.

  2. WOW WOW WOW absolutely stunning, I love your card.
