Nora here to bring you a little inspiration using Challenge #4.
I chose the middle row from top to bottom with the elements-sequins, Distress Inks and stencil to create my card.
I used a technique on this card that I had never tried. It was using shimmer spray and Distress Ink with a stencil. I snapped some photos to give you a little photo tutorial of the process.
I inked a piece of white card stock with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I did not use any fancy tools but literally rubbed the ink pad across the paper.
Next I covered the inked card stock with the Echo Park"Branches" stencil and misted it with a clear shimmer spray. (You can also use water if you did not want the shimmer.) I sprayed just enough to cover the stencil but not enough to saturate the paper. I used a paper towel to blot any excess moisture there might have been on the stencil.
I slowly took the stencil off and used a heat gun to dry the panel. It might buckle a bit but once you adhere it to a card, it will be fine. You can also see that I did not mist the card evenly. I could have gone back to fix this but I liked the way it came out so I chose to leave it this way.
I cut the panel down a bit and adhered it over a top folding white card base. I then added a strip of white and black polka dot paper at the bottom of the inked panel.
I used PaperTrey Ink's "Vintage Linens" stamp set to stamp the flowers in black dye ink. I then die cut them with the "Vintage Linens" matching die set. I adhered the leaves and flowers to the front of the card, using foam adhesive on the left flower to give it a bit of dimension.
I adhered three clear sequins randomly over the card and used clear Wink of Stella over the black leaves and the flower stamens.
I chose to leave the card blank, figuring I could add a sentiment later, depending on what I want to use the card for.
There is still some time to play with the Challenge #4 card. I cannot wait to see what you create!!
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!
