A nice quick way to make a background for your card is to use some Prism Glace or embossing paste with a stencil.
Vicki Boutin recently had a new release and I was over the moon with it. It’s intended for scrapbooking, but I created a card with several elements of the release.
I might add that I purchased way too many goodies in her latest release!
I’ve been watching a lot of Vicki’s Mixed Media videos and live streams. I’m so happy that she is doing these for us. It’s nice to be able to essentially take a free class from the artist designing the materials. She’s so creative and it feels like she is just giving us permission to experiment and see what we can create with all the fabulous items she designed!
The stencil is Catherine Pooler’s Off the Loom. It’s one of my faves right now. I keep pulling it out and playing with different mediums and techniques to see what I can create with it.
I used Vicki Boutin’s Prism Glaze. It has the most amazing sparkle and shine. Pictures do not capture how pretty this is.
I used some Vicki Boutin Washi Tape and a floral die cut from her Let’s Wander release because it coordinates with the glaze.
The tag and stamped sentiment are from a Park Lane stamp and tag set that I got in the clearance bin at a local craft store in February. It’s nice to have a small assortment of tags ready to go so you can pop one on a card.
The layout came from this week’s Atlantic Heart’s Sketch Challenge.
I really enjoyed this sketch. I loved that it was so quick and easy to create in a matter of minutes. I did used the stencil and prism glaze directly on the card base first so it had time to dry while I created the tag.
The tag was quick with ready to go elements and a quick stamped sentiment.
I added a few details to the floral image with my white gel pen, black journaling pen and my sparkle pen. I may add some sequins before I send it. We’ll see. It has a lot of dimension already!
