Lawn Fawn Baby Shower Card

This weekend is one of my best friend’s baby showers and I got a card done for her.

I used Lawn Fawn Papers, Lawn Fawn’s Hello Baby stamp set , our NEW Staggered Lines Stencil, Luster Mica Powder in Blue Ice, Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, a white A2 card base, Liquitex Professional Gloss Super Heavy Gel
, a palette knife, black pigment ink, acrylic stamping block, cosmetic sponge, and a blue rhinestone.

You can see the staggered lines stencil in the background. The Blue Ice Luster Mica Powder gives it a nice subtle shimmer. This color is much more vibrant on a black background. I also used a cosmetic sponge to add it to the edges of the patterned papers.

Here’s a youtube video showing the whole process :

Hello Friend Card

I used quite a few ” new to me” techniques on this card. The “hello” was a stamp I carved myself out of silicone. I was curious of how silicone would work as a stamp. It wasn’t great and I had to go back in with a paint brush to make the image solid. I also used one of my hexagon masks with glitter acrylic paint and watercolors for the background.  I made a tone gradient with the paint and the stencil and a color fade with the water colors. I’ve had a twilling tool for a while and I wanted to use it so I used the scraps I had left from cutting down the card to make the whimsical flowers. This card was fun to make , but if I did it again, I think I would use a different sentiment. I took some pictures with the flash hoping the glitter would show up.

Above is a picture of me testing the silicone stamp I carved. It does seem like silicone would be a good choice for making texture in UTEE, so I plan on trying that some day!
