Okay, so now for the fun stuff!!!! These cards were so much fun to make. Stamping the background with the Versamark ink was a bit tedious, since it's so hard to see the clear ink. They aren't perfect but they are really cute. What do you think?
I used a chevron background stamp from several years back to create the background on white card bases, using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I then used a few distressing tools and inks to create the background. Our pigment ink pads would work better for this, since they blend easier and don't dry as fast, but I only have basic colors in those and I wanted to use some fun colors.
I cut the front accent pieces from white cardstock, stamped the sun in red, and used inks and distressing tools to color the sun and sky. I stamped the sentiment and put it all together. They were super easy, lots of fun, and they look beautiful too. I loved revisiting an old technique and finding a new way to use it.
Once I get my new materials in, I will create a video tutorial on heat embossing, using the February Stamp of the Month, Easter Bunny.
