I made an encouragement card with the Happy Days stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
For the background I used some pastel yellow cardstock. I repeatedly stamped the umbrella image onto it, with Butter Ink from Lawn Fawn. I wanted to create a tone on tone look. I double stamped each image, because it’s a very light ink color.
I stamped another umbrella and the speech bubble with sentiment onto white cardstock, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I heat embossed it with Clear Gloss Embossing Powder from Wow. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color it. Here are the colors I used:
Umbrella: 050 – Yellow/ 022 – Carmine Red
Cheeks: 026 – Light Pink
Speech bubble: 091 – Light Grey
I fussy cut the images and adhered it to the stamped background with foam tape. I adhered the panel onto a white cardbase and rounded of the bottom right and top left corner. For a finishing touch I added some drops of Glossy Accents here and there, to look like raindrops.
It’s not easy to see, but I really like the tone on tone look. And this card will brighten anyone’s day.
