Love sparkles reminds me a bit of street art so I decided to make a bit of a graffiti look card. It’s a stamp set which speaks differently to different people. Some say it reminds them of sparklers. I made the background stamping multiple times with multiple colours of Succulents from the stamp set Oh So Succulent sprayed with water then when I was satisfied it had bled enough I used my heat tool to dry completely. I then used Momento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp on the Love Sparkles images and voila I had a thank you card. I then mounted it on some slightly off set melon mambo and Bermuda bay card stock and finally whisper white thick card stock as a card base. This is from the 2017 Occasions catalog which will be available to customers starting January 4, 2017.
I did this card to play with a macrame hanging basket idea which was shown at On Stage local here in Vancouver BC Canada. I couldn’t remember exactly how but I remembered the gist of it. I used the stamp set Oh So Succulent as well as the Hardwood background stamp. The main colours are Crumb Cake and Sahara Sands. The other colours used on the Succulents are a multitude but Succulents are so colourful you can really choose whatever comes to mind. The sentiment is Rich Razzleberry. I didn’t think I would like this stamp set but I got it free at the event and after playing with it I’ve fallen in love with it. This card makes me think of a California beach house in the 70’s.
