Hi friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Cheiron Brandon as a guest on our blog today! Read on and enjoy!
Hi there crafty friends! I am thrilled to be here today to give you a quick and easy idea for all those Idea-ology paper dolls in your stash. For this card, I created a fun floral background, and added a few of my favorite Idea-ology pieces to create a fun, simple card. This card would be great to make in multiples by switching out the colors of the background, Paper Dolls and sentiments.
To begin, I cut the Sizzix Bouquet die out of Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I placed the background into my Splat Box and misted it with water using the Distress Sprayer. Then I sprayed the entire die with Victorian Velvet Distress Spray Stain, and then Sprayed Wilted Violet Distress Spray Stain just into the centers of the flowers and dried the piece with a heat tool. Once it was dry, I adhered it to the card base using Distress Collage Medium.
I inked the edges of a Paper Doll with Black Soot Distress Ink and added it to the front of the card. Then I took a sentiment sticker from the Big Talk Snarky stickers and adhered it to the card using foam tape. To complete the card, I added a few of the gold colored Tim Holtz Idea-ology Metallic Droplets. I love how easy it is to create a card with just a few supplies and a bold mixed media background.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
