My Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit finally arrived Tuesday and I spent yesterday creating, taking pictures, and editing.
I love how the Simon Says Stamp Card Kits have been so technique-based lately, giving me the opportunity and motivation to try things I either haven't tried before or have struggled with in the past. Foiling is something I have had a really hard time with and yet I was able to make it work for me in a couple of different ways with this kit. Yay!
Unfortunately (but not surprisingly) this card kit is already out of stock. Fortunately I have one to give away here!
Here's the card I'm sharing today:
I used the Stream Alcohol Ink along with Blending Solution and Snow Cap Mixative on the Simon Says Stamp White Yupo Paper to create my background. I used the Distress Spritzer Tool to move the ink around. While it was drying (partly dry with some wet spots), I covered the paper with Gina K Wild Dandelion Fancy Foil, lightly rubbing over top of it. When released, the foil stuck to the areas that had still been damp, creating a beautiful marbled look.
I had planned on creating a card with an alcohol ink background where I had stamped the floral image from the Sketched Flowers Stamp Set with Alcohol Lift-Ink to lift the image off the background. The background I had created was too busy looking and the detailed florals got lost in it. Rather then throw in the towel completely, I took the stamp with the lifted ink and stamped it on another piece of Yupo Paper. Once dried, I added a sentiment from the same stamp set, matted the panel with Simon's Peacock Cardstock, and adhered it to the marbled background. I finished the card off with some Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops.
