Hi Everyone and Happy Mother's Day! If you are a mother I hope your day is very special. Today I made a Mother's Day card for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Technique Tuesday, using a fun technique for the background. I don't think you will stop at one!
- white or cream card stock
- stencils brass or plastic -- I used plastic
- ink sprays
- Versa Mark ink pad
- glittery embossing powders
- water spritzer
- paper towel
- embossing buddy
- heat tool
Spray your card stock with several colors.
Spritz some water over the colors to blend a little more.
Blot card stock with a paper towel, lay a stencil over the card stock and spray a color over the stencil. I used a white pearl on this one to give a subtle look.
Continue to lay stencils over the card stock and spray different colors, some dark and some light.
Now use the embossing buddy to swipe over the card stock. This will keep the embossing powder from sticking where you do not want it!
Now lay a stencil over your background and sponge Versa Mark ink over the openings of the stencil.
Add embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.
Keep doing this as much or as little as you want. Now you have a neat and shimmery background.
Here are some others I made. I chose the last one to use on my card above.
I hope you will have fun playing with this technique. There are so many possibilities with this. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
