Hey Crafty People!
When I saw the gorgeous patterned paper and ink colours included in the DIY Papercraft Kit - Love Theme, straight away I wanted to create a pair of cards that were each the opposite of each other!
I really love to play with colour like this, and the papers and ink colours that are included are the perfect match for this kind of style!
I chose my two papers and stencilled over the top of both of them, using the Bricks Stencil that is part of the kit and some clear, holographic glitter paste.
I didn't want to cover the whole background, and I didn't want the stencilling to be perfect; so I started towards the bottom corner and worked upwards & outwards, making sure to allow the paste to just trail off organically.
Then I needed to let these dry, so I set them aside and worked on my floral elements.
Painting With Ink!
I was feeling much too impatient to leave this to dry naturally, so instead after a few minutes I grabbed my dual speed heat gun and heat set the ink on the lower setting, constantly keeping it moving, so as not to warp the paper.
I always paint on my glass mat so that I can use the space around where I'm working as a giant palette. So I pressed the ink pad straight down onto the glass and then used a small amount of water to add colour to the Rose, one petal at a time.
I like to start by adding the
deepest, most concentrated colour to the base of the petal, and anywhere that
there would be a shadow; then I use more water with the ink, to get lighter
shades as I moved up the petal.

Assembling The Cards
I used a 4.25 x 5.5 inch rectangle die to cut my backgrounds down to size; this ensures that my panel will be the correct size, but it also means that I get to choose the exact part of it to use which is perfect.
That finished both cards off!
Super Quick Cardmaking!
The patterned paper that comes with the card kit has so many beautiful designs, but when I saw this floral one I knew that it was perfect for an instant background!
I just added a die cut sentiment from plain Neenah cardstock & vellum and some white Nuvo Drops!
Simple, quick and easy!
Stay safe, stay healthy and stay crafty, my friends!
