Hello, hope you are all well. Today’s card was created for a recent birthday – my Mum. When I was creating this card, I was initially unsure if the grey would look right but I think it really makes the white heat embossing detail of the stamp stand out. This grey toned pencilled card creates a modern contemporary card. This was a new stamp I had recently purchased and I think it is a beautiful stamp set from W Plus 9, so go and check them out.
grey toned pencilled card PROCESS OVERVIEW
To start, stamp in versamark the cup onto scarp grey card. Before heat embossing, stamp the saucer and flowers too. Cover this with heat embossing and using a fine brush, brush away embossing powder away from any areas where the stamps overlap. You could mask the stamp beforehand, but doing this was is much quicker. Cover in white powder and heat set.
To colour the image in, add a light layer of white pencil first before adding your colour. The white can also be used to add highlights. Once complete, fussy cut this out. To create the card, apply white pigment ink through the Mermaid Lagoon stencil onto a grey card panel creating an organic look to the background. Foam mount cup onto the card and add a heat embossed vellum sentiment. Lastly, add a few white Tonic Nuvo Drops to add a pop of bright contrasting colour.
