Hey crafty friends! Today I am sharing my first card made for the DT at Joy Clair Designs.
Today's card is made with a digital stamp set called "Hey Girl" and can be found here.
First, I printed the image on Spectrum Noir paper (once I decided I was going to use my Copic markers instead of water coloring). I colored this in with Copic markers (see list below) and then cut the image down a little bit. I added a few rhinestones to the image (purchased on Amazon), and then initially, to cut it down used a rectangle die.
Here is where the happy accident occurred lol. I ran it through my Spellbinder platinum and realized what I was doing. But when I took it out, the rhinestones had been flattened, but not ruined. To my amazement they were sparkly little flattened centers to the flowers! I love how they turned out!
I then took a piece of Schoolhouse red cardstock from Simon and ran it through my Gina K. designs tapestry embossing folder. I took a sheet of matte silver cardstock from Simon, and one of the A2 thin frame dies also from Simon and cut that out. I added the red cardstock to my A2 card base (made from Neena Classic solar crest white 110 lb. cardstock) and then adhered the silver frame. I knew I wanted this image to stand out, so I added some Scotch foam tape to the back and then adhered it to the base as well. Voila!
I had so much fun coloring this image and I thought it was so pretty that I didn't even use a sentiment on it. I wanted all of the attention to be on the image. Be sure to head over to the Joy Clair Designs website and check out all of her amazing stamp sets and other products!
