We are happy to have Jayne join us with a beautiful card that she created this month.
Jayne: There are so many wonderful images in this month's stamp set, I decided to use as many as I could to create a fun background for a pair of holiday sentiments. I started by using seven of the kit's image dies to create masks that I placed on a white cardstock panel. One at a time, I used a foam blender with Pale Tomato, Cotton Candy, Fresh Lawn, and Green Hills inks to apply color to the masked areas. Then, I stamped the matching images with Black ink over the inked shapes.
Next, I covered each image with masking paper and applied a subtle layer of Mint Julep ink to the top of the panel and around the images, gradually blending to white. To complete the background, I stamped an assorted selection of the kit's other stamps across the panel, filling each space with images that fit nicely.
I embossed two sentiments onto strips of red and green cardstock that I secured to a vellum cloud and then centered them on the card with foam tape. I matted the panel with white cardstock and added it to a pool card base. For some holiday sparkle, I finished the card with a few, clear gems.
Thank you Jayne! So creative!
