Hello hello friends. My birthday card stash has been greatly diminished the last few month. Seems like everyone I know has had a birthday this summer.
Today’s card, I’m shopping my stash of forgotten stamps. It’s been a long time since I’ve used the Shower of Gifts background stamp. Time to show it some love.
I started out by applying Vegas Strip ink to my glass mat and spritzing it with a little water. I then dabbed up the ink with my water color panel. I did this a couple times until I go the coverage I wanted. With a brush, I applied ink sprinkles with some of the left over ink.
Once the panel was dry, I was ready to stamp the background. To use with my Misti, I needed to remove the foam pad. The white rubber stamps are thick since they are mounted on foam. I inked up the Shower of Gifts background with Clear Embossing Ink and stamped the panel. Using my Smooshing tool to make sure I got a good impression.
Using the Rose Gold Dual Tip Powder brush, I dusted Asteroid -Interference Kaleidoscope Powder over the stamped panel. The powder is very light and just add a little contrast. But the shimmer is so fun.
I didn’t have any cardstock in Vegas Strip, so I made my own. Using the edge of the ink pad, I drug it across the paper, inking up just the edge. I’ll be covering the middle, no need to add ink there. The splotches disappeared once the ink dried completely.
Thanks for following along
Until next time – Jackie❤
