Watch the here
In the video I show you a quick glimpse of the entire kit, though I didn't use all of the supplies. I will have videos featuring more of these items through out July.
I started the card by smooshing Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink on to my glass mat and dipping some watercolor paper into it. It gives a watercolor kind of look. I let that dry and then die cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I also cut a smaller piece of white cardstock with a rectangle die so that I could use a stencil to create the yellow and green rays. I did this by ink blending Distress Inks over the top of the stencil with a sponge ink blender tool.
Then I stamped the pineapple and glasses on to another piece of cardstock with my stamp platform. I used copics to color those ink. Keeping the pineapple to shades of yellow and green and the sunglasses got a quick color of light blue. Since this kit doesn't come with dies for all of the stamps I fussy cut the images out, leaving a white border around them. I used glossy accents on the sun glasses. On the pineapple I added white details with a Prismacolor pencil and a Signo white gel pen.
To stamp the sentiment I used Versafine Black Onyx ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I also die cut a stitched circle that fit almost perfectly in the center of the stencil ink blend. I adhered all the panels together and then added the pineapple and sunglasses. Then I scattered sequins over the card keeping the lighter color ones towards the top and the darker towards the bottom like a gradation. I used Glossy Accents for the centers of each sequin so that they were securely adhered to the card.
The last step is the inside. I kept it simple of course and did a quick "on stamp ink blend". I took the yellow and green distress ink and added them both to the pineapple image then stamped it. Over the top of that I stamped the sunglasses in Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink.
Definitely a summer card!
