The newest class from Online Card Classes started yesterday and I was inspired to create a card. I have been in a major creative funk lately, so this is exactly what I needed! There were several background techniques shared during Day One, but I chose to do Jennifer McGuire‘s VersaMark and dye ink technique for this background…
I used THIS
dye ink to cover a panel of white cardstock cut from THIS
die. I inked up THIS
background stamp with VersaMark ink and stamped it on top. At first you don’t see much, but as it dries, it creates a subtle texture. I love this technique!
Here’s a closer look…
I used THIS
stamp set by Lawn Fawn and stamped the images using THIS
ink. I colored in the images with some Spectrum Noir markers, cut them out and adhered them to the card along with a greeting from the set that I white heat embossed. Oh, and that banner shape is from THIS
same die set.
I enjoy decorating the inside of the card as well so I did the same process to make a panel on the inside…
die was used for the speech bubble…one of my most used dies! I added some wink of stella to the fish for some shine and finished off the card by adding some bubbles with glossy accents.
If you look closely, the bubbles are not clear. This technique made the bubbles have a blue tint instead of clear. I think it soaked in some of that dye ink. I actually like it better…
