Colourful Technique

March 17, 2020

Today’s card was created after watching a video by Lisa Curcio.  It is a bit of a spin on an old technique.  I used different colours than Lisa did in her video to create a “male” and “female” version of the card.  For the “male” version I used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy ink which I sponged onto Whisper White card.  Following Lisa’s instructions, the card was slightly larger than I knew I would need.  Once the ink has dried I attached the Basic Pattern Decorative Mask over the inked card.  I used some retired Washi Tape on the back of the Whisper White card to hold the mask in place.   I used my Versamark ink pad to add ink all over the coloured Whisper White card.  I removed the mask, sprinkled the card with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I let the card sit for a minute before using a Sponge Bayer to add Memento Tuxedo Black ink all over the image.  A quick rub with a tissue to remove any Black ink on the embossing and the card was ready to use.  I cut the card down to the size I wanted and attached it to Bermuda Bay card and then scored and folded Basic Black card.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink.  I cut out the image using the oval die from the Detailed Bands Dies.  I attached the greeting to Basic Black card cut with another of the Detailed Bands Dies and then the card front.  To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink.  I also attached the pieces of card that I trimmed from the sponged and embossed Whisper White card across the bottom of the Whisper White card.

The “female” version of the card follows exactly the same procedure but uses Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Poppy Parade ink sponged onto the Whisper White card.  The greetings are stamped using Poppy Parade ink.  I used the same Detailed Bands Dies for the greeting and the Basic Black label.

I love how these cards turned out and I am sure that you will love giving this technique a try.  Thanks Lisa for your simple instructions which produce a big WOW.

Bye for now,
