Hello! I have a sweet card to share today! I just love cotton candy. It is so fun to eat, SOOO fluffy and pretty! We never leave a fair without having some! Today’s card has a fun twist to add what looks a little like cotton candy on the background.

I began by ink blending Acid Wash, Purple Rain, and Rah Rah Skirt Color Hive inks on watercolor paper. 

Next is the fun part. I took a junk plastic container and put Marshmallow Paste in the three sections. Then I added Acid Wash, Purple Rain, and Rah Rah Skirt ink refills in each of the sections.

I mixed them up and spread them over the Maker Forte Tessa Dots stencil

Once I had all of the holes of the Tessa Dot Stencil filled, I carefully removed the stencil and dropped it in a bucket of water so the paste wouldn’t dry on my stencil. Then, I heated it with my heat gun to see it poof up!

I love the way it looks all puffed up. Some of it will peel off and you will see more of the colored puffed marshmallow paste (as you can see in the finished card). 

Next, I stamped three cotton candy images on a piece of Ultra White cardstock from the Candy Floss Dreams stamp set and colored them with Copic markers. I added a face to the middle cotton candy from the S’mores Sentiments Stamp set. I just adore the faces in the S’mores Sentiments set which is a collaboration between Jess Francisco and Maker Forte. Then, I embossed the sentiment using Color Hive Clear Embossing ink on a strip of Eclipse Black cardstock

I added foam tape to the marshmallow paste panel, the sentiment and the cotton candy panel. Finally, I assembled the layers to an Ultra White card base

Thank you so much for stopping by!
