Happy Tuesday! Today on color combos with Crystal I have a difficult to photograph, easy to make card using the newest Slim Line Tulip Stencil. With layers of ink blending and foil, the Tulips really stand out! Keep reading to see the full details!
Let me tell you about this color combination, I am loving MINT at the moment and the vibrant green with tones of Silver was set to really stand out. Adding a bit of iridescent glitter brings the whole thing together.
Now for the supplies:
- Slim Line Tulip Stencil
- Every Single Day Stamp Set
- Deco Foil Paste
- Silver Foil
- Ink colors in bright green & mint
- White Card stock
- Nuvo Drops
- Silver Embossing Powder
To begin, I have the card base cut to 5.50 x 4.25 inches. Using the Slim Line Tulip stencil, I am going to add a white and glitter set of tulips to serve as a background. On a piece of acetate, I mixed clear Nuvo with White and then added some glitter. This paste was then placed over the stencil of the background tulips. Set aside to dry.
Now onto another piece of white cardstock, I ink blended the lime green of the leaves, followed by the second set of tulip using a mint green color. I did add a layer of turquoise to the base of the tulips to give them more dimension.
For the fun part, the foiling! Using Deco Foil Transfer Gel and the last of the Tulip stencil, I added this to the card over the minty tulips. Allowed this to dry for about 5 minutes when the Gel turns Clear. I then placed the sheet of silver foil, shiny side up, and ran that through my mini Mink machine.
Once the card came out, I removed the foil to reveal the tulips with a gorgeous accent of Silver.
These Tulips were then placed over the white cardstock with foam adhesive on the left side. For the sentiment, I stamped the Just Because on the Vellum and heat embossed it with Silver. Then cut the around the words to create rounded edges. This was then placed with 3 layers of foam adhesive.
To finish up, I added the embellishments of mint and clear to tie the whole thing together. I have a FULL tutorial from start to finish on how easy it is to create this card.
