Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Looking For You Card

As I was making this (admittedly, SUBDUED) card, I thought of all of the bright color combinations that would be fabulous for it. Luckily, this stamp set has lots of sentiments, so you may see another version of this in the near future.

Each frame is double layered (navy over black, pattern over royal). The hearts in the background were blended through a stencil.

Supplies:  Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – KaiserCraft Havana Nights, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Smoky Slate, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Ink Hickory Smoke, VersaFine Clair Twilight, dies – My Favorite Things, stencil – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.
