I've decided to do this blog post as a tutorial with photos showing each stage of the process, I apologise in advance for the lighting in some of the photos as it was a strange day up here in Scotland with bright sunshine one minute and black clouds the next!
The finished card is as shown below.
What you will need -
- Can't Buy Love stamp
- Distress Diamonds - Backdrop stamps
- Style Wire Heart - Backdrop Frames stamp
- Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink
- Glossy Accents
- Foam Pads
- Paint Brush
- Pearls (From my crafty stash)
What you need to do -
Using Mermaid Lagoon DI, stamp the diamonds along the centre of the card.
Taking a piece of white card, cut slightly smaller than the card blank, use a blending tool to blend Mermaid Lagoon DI around all the edges.
Stamp the large heart using Mermaid Lagoon DI, and using a water brush, flick some ink over the heart to create this splattered effect.
Stamp the sentiment using Mermaid Lagoon DI and cut out. Cut a piece of white card slightly larger and blend ink around the edges. Mat the sentiment on to the larger card with glue.
Mat the distressed diamonds onto the blended ink card.
Add Glossy Accents to every diamond.
This is the effect you will end up with - looks really good on the distressed diamonds!
When you have adhered everything to the card this is what you will end up with.
I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and that you'll think of giving this card a go. If you have any comments then please do get in touch.
Until next time
