Here is my card, inspired by dark blue!
To create my card I started off by watercoloring the background sky and water with Gansai Tambi watercolors! I love the creamy and rich effect the Gansai Tambi watercolors give! Then I decided where my horizon line would fall and then masked off the water portion of the card. I sprayed the top half with spray adhesive and then placed a used dryer sheet over the adhesive. I smoothed it with my fingers and then sprinkled glitter all over the dryer sheet. I rubbed the glitter into the sheet and then tapped off the excess. I let that dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
Next I stamped the narwhal and stack of presents onto cardstock with Versafine and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored them with copics and added a little wink of stella to the narwhal’s horn and the ribbons. I also stamped the iceberg onto vellum with versamark and embossed it with hologram sparkle embossing glitter. I also die-cut the sentiment with dark blue cardstock and pressed my versamark pad over the sentiment. I heat-embossed it with clear ultra high embossing powder to give it a raised, shiny look! Finally I die-cut some icy hills with white and silver cardstock.
To assemble my card I adhered the hills over the background with my ATG gun. Then I adhered the narwhal with foam mounting tape, adhered the iceberg with vellum tape, and adhered the stack of presents with foam mounting tape. I used ranger multi-medium matte to attach the sentiment to the dryer sheet background and used a clean acrylic block to hold down the sentiment as it dried. Last I mounted the panel to a top-folding white card base! Lots of fun dark blue goodness all over my card! 🙂
I hope my card inspires you to use dark blue in your creations! Get hopping and don’t forget to leave a comment on every hop stop for a chance to win $25 to The Ink Road! Also, make sure you leave your email address so that we can contact you if you win!
