OCC SYS 2 DAY 1 – HELLO

Hello folks,
I’m so glad that I participated in Stretch Your Stamps 2 at Online Card Classes. There are full of inspirations!! I strongly recommend it.

SYS2_participant
Especially I was in awe of Shari Caroll’s hello card. It was so amazing and I was inspired by her.

Here is what I came up with:
20140807-01Unfortunately I didn’t have the featured background stamps but it was totally OK! I used beautiful Hero Arts Everything Flowers Stamp instead of them :D

I applied on the background stamp using Evergreen Bough, Rusty Hinge, Bundled Sage, and Victorian Velvet Distress inks and then spritzed the inked stamp with water using a mini mister. I then stamped the background image on a watercolour paper panel (smooth side). After the stamped panel was completely dried, I spritzed Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz Sparkle a little bit and cut the stamped panel and applied Rusty Hinge ink around the edges of each stamped square. I affixed the squares to a white cardstock panel using foam dots for dimension. I die cutted two “hello” pieces with black paper and adhered the pieces together using a glue pen. Lastly I decorated the vellum die cut butterflies for finishing touch!
