Holy color! Do you love how beautiful this card is and how all of these colors blend into the next seamlessly! Last Friday Shannon created this beautiful card LIVE on our Facebook page. She walked us through each step and we just love it. Let’s share the steps here on the blog!
In order to be able to add color and mix and not worry – we’re using our Color Splash Sheets! They are beautifully thick and take all the color you can give. Using the Journey Platinum Machine place your sheet of Color Splash in the Diamond Netting embossing folder and run it through. Now, it’s ready to start with the Liquid Color!
If you take your Bubble Gum Liquid Color and put about a dime size amount on your clear block. Using your dauber, blend the Bubble Gum Liquid Color on 1/6 of the Color Splash paper. Blend it through where you are satisfied with the amount of ink. Next, do the same with the Watermelon Fusion Liquid Color, making sure to blend the Watermelon Fusion with the Bubble Gum Liquid Color. You will create a fun third color where you have the overlap of the two colors!
Now, that you have the two colors you’ll add the rest of the colors: Cool Pool, Catalina Splash, Lemon Drop and Orange Creamsicle Liquid Fusion. You’ll continue overlapping the colors slightly so all of the colors blend together seamlessly!
Now that the base is all inked up, we’ll set that aside to dry a bit and we’ll work on stamping our sentiment. We’ll take the Celebration Script Stamp Set and use the Happy Birthday To You stamp on Whip Cream cardstock with the Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink Pad. Once we’re stamped and dry, we’ll take the Celebration Script Die Set and cut out our sentiment quickly using our Journey Platinum Machine. But why stop there?
Let’s add a bit of Journey Glaze over the stamp. We just love how the glaze gives it the look of embossing without using the heat tool!
Remember that colorful and embossed base? Let’s use it! But first, let’s take our Fusion Ink Sponge and Whip Cream True Color Fusion Ink Pad to tone down the color a bit and bring out the embossing on the Color Splash Sheets. Simply bounce the sponge in the ink pad, then smoosh the Whip Cream ink all over the colorful Colorsplash Sheet. You’ll notice that the colors become a tiny bit less vibrant and the embossed texture really shines through!
Onto a bit of embellishing! Tear off a portion of each of Whip Cream Sparkle Tape, Pool Play Sparkle Tape and the silver roll from Classic Elegance set. Overlap the three tapes just a bit to create a cute little cluster base. Now, you’re ready to attach your sentiment using Journey Foam Squares. Love the dimension these create.
We couldn’t stop there. We needed to add just a little bit of sparkle and the Cut Rhinestones add just the perfect amount of bling and interest to the card, don’t you think?
