{Spotlight Project} Vicki Goes Bright & Vivid!


Hi, all! It's Vicki here. I am so impressed by the bright and vivid coloring I am seeing in blogland, and even with the fabulous team here at STAMPlorations! I wanted to see if I could accomplish it. Today's card is all about color and more color.

Here is the finished card:


Did I accomplish my goal? :) I think so!


I started by crumpling up tissue paper.


I glued it to a piece of pre-cut cardstock.


Using a sponge applicator and Distress inks, I added on color.


Using a stencil, I applied embossing paste and let it dry.

Base panel done!


I went on to another piece of cardstock and started applying ink -- heavily, starting with the lightest color and building towards the darker.
I used Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Persimmon, and Fired Brick.


Once I got the color as bright and vivid as I wanted, I stamped the flower from Bloom Sketches, along with a sentiment, and a butterfly from Trendy Butterflies. I fussy cut them out and adhered onto the tissue card panel. I adhered that panel onto a black card base to make the colors POP even more!




I am loving my bright, vivid card! :)


See ya next time!
