I’m back today with a quick post and a sneak peek at some new stamps that will be hitting the Pink & Main store this month. “Hugs Needed” is a gorgeous sentiment set that you can add to a card with one of your colored images or try any number of techniques with. Here I’ve played with some embossed resist to create a bright and cheerful any-occasion card.
After stamping the words in Versamark ink, I added white embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool. Then I masked off a diagonal region surrounding the sentiment with Post-It tape and blended several colors of Distress Ink in rainbow order over top (Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet).
To finish off the panel nicely, I added thin black and silver glitter strips (DCWV Glimmer Paper) to the edges of my inking. Then I adhered the panel to a black mat and sprinkled a few clear sequins (Pretty Pink Posh – Clear Sparkling Mix) on top.
I hope you enjoyed this quick card project…as always, I love to hear your comments!
