Hello fellow crafters and friends. Hope all of you had a wonderful Easter. I know many times, the hardest cards to create are the ones we have to make for our loved ones who have lost someone. I like to create these cards ahead of time since it truly is difficult to create. This is a great card to mass produce and hope to never use but always there if such a time comes.
To begin this card, I started with a Canson water color paper. I always like using water color paper when working with Oxide inks. I feel it can withhold a lot of water and give a lot better and more stunning result. I start by blending the darkest color onto my watercolor paper using my Nuvo blending sponge, then I move onto my medium tone and followed by my lightest color. I usually like to work with three colors, I feel it gives a more of an eye catching result.
Once the first part of rhe blending is complete, I spritzed some water onto my paper and move the water around to get more of the oxidized look. Once I achieved the look I wanted, I once again, took my blending sponge and my mid tone ink and simply dabbed a bit more of the color. I then, lightly spritzed the watecolor paper.
Now, before moving onto the next step, you definitely want to make sure your water color paper is completely dry. Once dry, I went with my embossing buddy to remove any static from my paper. Then, using my Versamark Ink, I simply stamped the images from the Stamp set So Sorry on the spots I desired. I then used Brutus Monroes Detail embossing powder to coat that versamark and followd that by heat embossing the images and sentiment.
I then took an A2 size Neenah Black Cardstock Base and simply glued my background onto the front of my card. Whenever I used a black cardstock base, i always remember to put a White cardtsock in the inside so I can write on it and not worry about having a white pen. That completes the card!
I hope I never have to use these cards but if I do, I know I have a beautiful card to send to my loved ones to show I care and that I am standing right besides them through such a challenging time. Have a wonderful day everyone!
