This month I got to send a card to the Netherlands again. I have such fond memories of visiting that beautiful country, and would love to go back someday.
For this card I used a rectangular stencil and brushed Distress ink in Wild Honey from the lower left corner to the upper right, allowing the color to fade out at the upper right. I splattered the Distress ink with water to create some spots.
Once my panel had dried, I stamped the beautiful Clover Silhouette stamp in black. This stamp was designed by Elie Knoll, one of Magenta's talented Dutch Design Team members. Then also in black, I stamped the hello! sentiment, which is one of my favorites of the calligraphy stamps designed by the amazing Sally Penley for Magenta. Last, I stamped the Zen Butterfly, which is a stamp I designed for Magenta. The butterfly was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in gold.
I spattered some gold paint onto the panel, and I took an oblique photo of the card to show how shiny the gold is in real life. I die cut the panel using The Greetery Crimped Edge die, and matted it with gold cardstock, and then onto a base card.
This is the sneak peek shot I posted onto the Magenta Passion Studio. It shows how really gold and shiny the card is.
