Hi friends, I have one more card to share today using some more Pinkfresh Studio goodies.
For this one, I used one of the patterned papers from Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills (older one) collection. I trimmed it to be slightly smaller than my A2 sized cardbase. Over this trimmed rectangle panel, I stamped the two floral images from Pinkfresh Studio’s Bloom stamp set + the two sentiments you see here using Versamark ink.
Well, that’s when I made a boo-boo. I used MISTI to double stamp it, but since this patterned paper is not quite thick, it shifted a little when I was lifting the MISTI door and the bottom floral cluster became a bit wonky. And what’s worse, it became evident only after I had heat embossed with Simon Says stamp Steel embossing powder! Then my Wavy Scallop dies from SSS came to the rescue and I cut off the bottom half where the boo-boo was very evident and decided to use just the top part.
I realized the smaller font sentiment stayed a little bit wonky, but I decided that it didn’t bother me much, so went with it. I could have added a separate stripe of paper on top with that sentiment stamped / heat embossed, but oh well.
To enhance the background / cardbase of this piece, I stamped the words ‘thank you’ over and over again using Versamark which is a clear, sticky, watermark ink. My cardbase is the Smoke colored prescored one which came in Simon Says Stamp May 2018 card kit. Stamping with Versamark just added that beautiful tone-on-tone look.
To finish this card, I foam mounted my patterned paper – heat embossed panel on the cardbase and added a few matching sequins + a sequin butterfly.
What do you think of this card? I love to use sentiment stamps to do more than just stamps a sentiment and creating a fun background with them is one of my favorite techniques to enhance a background. What is your favorite background technique? And how do you generally fix boo-boos? I’m curious. Do let me know in the comments below.
