Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Caly Person with this gorgeous “just because” floral card inspiration! Be sure to watch the video for all the details, and enjoy!
Hello there! I love a soft background and tried a technique I learned from Yana Smakula. Yana creates more abstract backgrounds and they are beautiful! Since this was my first time, my background is less abstract, but I still love how it turned out. I created this background for the Just a Note Pansy wreath that I made.
- Yellows: Y11, Y15
- Pinks: RV10, RV11, RV13, RV17
- Greens: [YG11, YG06, YG09], [G21, G24, G28]
For a soft background, I used White Glossy Cardstock and Pawsitively Saturated Inks in Cheeky, Melon, Bubblegum. I applied the ink directly to the paper, then quickly used my finger to spread the pigment before it saturated the paper. Be sure to check out the video to see how I did this!
I adhered my gold wreath ring over my background and then adhered the Just a Note Pansy with foam adhesive to give it dimension. I finished with an embossed sentiment and embellished my card with some iridescent sequins.
I hope you enjoyed this card! I have to admit this card is the first time I’ve tried this ink technique. I will definitely have to try again and try to be more abstract with it like Yana does! It’s fun and easy and the ink didn’t stain my fingers. Thanks for visiting today!~Caly
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Caly for being our guest!
