I hope your week is going well! Lindsay and I are back today with another Take 2 Thursday. Take 2 Thursday is a just for fun feature that my crafty pal, Lindsay Amrhein, and I do every other week. We pick a stamp set and offer up a couple of different ideas for using it on your projects. If you would like to catch up on some of our other Take 2 Thursday posts, click here.
I really love the bold watercolor strip featured in the stamp set, so I decided to create a striped ombre card.
Starting at the top of a white card stock panel, I stamped the stripe in shades of pink moving from dark to light as I stamped down the panel. The final pink strip is such a light pink that it's not coming across very well in the picture, but it's there- just very light. I was able to achieve the lighter stripes through some generational stamping.
Once the ink was dry, I stamped the happy birthday sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I matted the stamped panel on a piece of gold foil card stock before adhering it to a white card stock base. A few flat sequins finished off the card.
Here's a look at the Brushed set:
I just love the font and those stripes have so many possibilities!! Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog today to check out her card! I know she will have something awesome!
