Now let's take a look at some projects Clare created with this month's kit!
I could not stop making cards with this kit! These two cards were created one after another, using a background I blended using the colored inks from the kit and some washi tape.
The inks are reactive, so I could've added water for more interest, but I kept it pretty simple for these two cards.
I cut two strips from the background and added one to either side of the card base. Then I adhered a white panel on top, and stamped two clouds in the kit blue ink. I then stamped the cute little roller coaster in black on kraft paper, die-cut it, and adhered it to the white panel.
For the second card, I used the last background strip to adhere to the bottom of the card.
I then stamped the carnival skyline in black on a white panel, adding some additional black ink beneath for a bolder line. Then I stamped some cute little fireworks in the kit red ink, and adhered the panel to the card base.
I love how perfectly this kit works for summer and/or Fourth of July celebrations!
