How are you friends? Hope all is well and I'm glad you stop by. I'm back again for another card inspiration using this month's Exclusive Rainy Days. I hope you get the chance to stop by Oddball Website to check out this amazing stamp set and some other stamp sets.
I love this stamp set so much that's why I decided to make several cards this month, Can't you tell? This stamp set can be made with your desired sizes from mini, medium or even large to occupy the whole front of your card using one or 2 digital stamps.
For today's card, I used 2 of the digital stamp from the March Members Exclusive. This is how I sketch the card before making them and it turned out how I planned it. I made several sketches before making a decision which one should I make and this one is the winner among the sketches I made.
First, I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 4.25 x 5.5 inches as my card panel then another piece of White cardstock, 4 x5.25 inches for my card base. I used the card base to make my background. It is a simple background, I used Ranger Distress Oxide Inks Rusty Hinge and Brushed Corduroy. I blended these 2 Distress Oxides on all sides of my card base and then blended them well to achieve a soft and well blended combination. We all know when we do this technique, the inks doesn't leave our brushes right away and it leaves for a little bit unless we clean it right away. So I decided to blend it softly to the whole white page to compliment the color on the side and I'm glad I did. It blended so well and I really like how it turned out.
The background was kind of blank even with colors so I decided to just add some streaks to make a little texture and I am happy I did because I did not even think that I will like it.
Then, I printed my image and colored them using Arteza Colored Pencils. This color pencil really blend so well and very soft but not that soft that it will break. It is such a very high end colored pencils with just a fraction of a price. I really love using them on all my cards even just for a little bit or hightlight.
After coloring these two images, I added a couple of foam tapes on each and added them to the left side of the card. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Hello Darling Stamp Set. stamped it on a black cardstock using Scrapbook.com White Pigment Ink and let it dry for a couple of minutes before adhering it on my card front. Lastly, I added a few of Studio Katia's Confetti and we are all done!
I know this too long for some details but I just want to give you all the deets I just in case you wanted to make one, two or more of this card.
