Today we are celebrating friendships formed through our mutual love of everything crafty!
You should be arriving from the Freckled Fawn Blog.
I just got back from a fantastic weekend spent with sixteen women who love paper crafting as much as I do! My heart is full with love and gratitude for these amazing women and the wonderful memories we shared! I've been super lucky over the years to spend crafty weekends with many card makers, scrapbookers, and paper crafters. Some of my dearest friendships have formed from this crazy wonderful hobby.
For my card share today, I created a rainbow halftone card inspired by the rainbow stairs and decor at the Whatever Craft House from our retreat! The Halftone Hearts were stamped using the Rock 'n Roll Technique and Distress Oxide Inks, overlapping the hearts for interest. This technique works especially well with pigment inks and is one of my favorites! I love seeing how it looks with the amazing Oxide inks!
A greeting from the Crafty Friends Stamp Set was stamped over the largest heart using black Versafine Ink as shown. An additional greeting from the Crafty Friends Stamp Set was stamped on black cardstock using Versamark Ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder and trimmed into a thin strip before being adhered under the other greeting.
The strip was trimmed to 2 3/4" x 5 1/2" and adhered to a 3" x 5 1/2" strip of black cardstock.
I felt like the background was a little plain so I stamped the smaller greeting phrase repeatedly on the card base using the same colors of Distress Oxide Ink as the hearts, creating a rainbow text background.
The matted strip was adhered to the background and the card was finished with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Strawberry Coulis, Orange Marmalade, Limoncello, Key Lime, Sea Breeze, and Periwinkle (to match the rainbow ink colors!).
