I’m back to show you a simple card that I made for the June challenge at Yoy Scrap in which the only requirement was to use stripes…
First I thought of making a nautical card because I love them, but I finally decided to work with a stencil, ColorBox pigment inks, Yoy Scrap stamps and a black Pilot pen to create this:
I used a corner of this Heart cluster stencil by Heidi Swapp that I really like:
I adehered it with Frog tape, a low-tack painter’s tape, to a square of Canson watercolour paper and inked it directly using the ink pads…
Lo hice suavemente para que no quedaran marcas, pero lo mejor es usar una esponjita de maquillaje o un aplicador de tinta de Tim Holtz.
The hearts were separated from each other so the risk of blending the inks was quite low. This is the result… a bit bland, isn’t it?
Now it was time to grab the Pilot pen and start drawing lines. I sustained the card panel against the edge of my Fiskars paper trimmer and used a set-square ruler to draw the lines but it could have been done freehand to give the card a more naif look.
I left a couple of the hearts plain to be able to stamp the fine-line sentiments on them.
It’s looking better… Can you see how I used the light peach colour to create a visual triangle that draws the eye. I forgot to take a picture of the next step… I cleaned the stencil well before adhering it in its place to trace the circles with the black Pilot. Then I removed it and filled the space around the circles with a black marker. Now I only had to stamp and embellish.
I also used one of the words from the chipboard set «hello in Spanish» by Yoy Scrap that I inked with Ranger’s Archival Ink. I used the same intense black ink for stamping.
I adhered the card panel to the base and glued a piece of striped black and white paper in between. I also added a couple of inked watercolour strips to the upper and lower part of the card.
Os dejo con una última imagen de mi tarjeta y un «hasta la próxima»… ahora me marcho a la playa ^_^
Here’s a last picture of my card. See you next time… I’m off to the beach ^_^
