This week we are featuring the Art Impressions NEW Girlfriends Cowgirls and Yoga clear set! To help celebrate, the challenge theme for this release is best friends. To enter enter for a chance to win check out the recent challenge over the on the Art Impressions blog.
I stamped these ladies on a piece of Neenah 80lb Solar white cardstock with Gina K. Amalgam ink. For the list of Copic Markers that I used for this card, see below. I did try to go with a more simpler blending and following the shadows from the example on the Ai packaging.
I've been seeing sage greens and rusty reds together for spring, and chose that as my color inspiration for this card. I used a piece of pattern paper from Heidi Swapp's Wolfpack, which I thought paired well with the little cactus die and the fun sentiment "Forever Fun Forever Young". I forgot to take a picture of the inside. I used one other sentiment that comes in this Cowgirls Set to make this one a birthday card.
Also, since I'm still testing out those blender brushes I used a technique that when I started making cards was all the rage. Ink blend those edges! I very lightly blended with walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink around the edges of the pattern paper and the banner cut out. I used the Art Impressions Double Stitched Banner die set to trim out these young and fun ladies.
For final touches, I added a small cactus die cut that I paper pieced together using 2 different colors of cardstock. I colored them using some Copics and a few sequins that matched the rusty orange\red color I used a few times. All products linked below.
