Today's card features some Mama Elephant and Clearly Besotted stamps along with the Ranger Texture Paste, Distress Inks and Copic Markers.
I first started off with the Ranger Texture Paste and an Simon Says Stamp stencil - I love this grid stencil, so simple and because of it being quite intricate, you can get a lot of colour in it. I used my palette knife to scoop some texture paste out and I applied it over my stencil. I then set it to dry one I got the layer nice and smooth. I then moved onto my colouring. It was some super simple colouring today. I used my copic markers along with the Ella and Friends set by Mama Elephant. I coloured the elephant, mouse & umbrella. I then die cut those out with the coordinating dies.
Once they were done I prepped the card base and sentiment, I just used a simple Thank You sentiment from a Clearly Besotted set and white heat embossed it on some black cardstock, by Simon Says Stamp and I then used that same cardstock to cover my card base.
Once that was completed my textured pasted piece had dried. So I grabbed out some distress ink in rainbows colours. I then placed the stencil back over my texture pasted piece and adhered it back down over top. I then ink blended in all the colours of ink over top to create a rainbow. The texture paste does this well and doesn't peel up! Along as it's dry of course.
Once it had all been coloured, it was time to assemble the card. I added some fun foam to the back on the texture pasted piece and then adhered that piece onto the card. I then grabbed my elephant and sentiment and adhered those onto the card with some 3M foam adhesive. At that stage I didn't like the way the umbrella & mouse looked on the card so I left those off. But, you'll see on this picture that I decided to add those on after all!
So that basically finished up the card. Look below and I'll have the video link for you. :)
Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you again soon!
