For my final SparkleNSprinkle November Release, I made a card using BOTH the new release stamps of "A Big Thanks" and the "Koi Pond Beauty". This follows a similar technique as my first card.
Step 1 - Create Your Background
You can follow the "smooshing" technique I did HERE
. I also did the same technique for the floral portion. The Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens are going to become your best friend for this technique!
Step 2 - Stamp and Color Your Images
Once again I stamped using the Nuvo Hybrid Ink in Black Shadow. I like to play surgeon with my stamps sometimes and cut them apart into two pieces. For the flower, you can see that I cut the "water" portion off. I can still use them together or separately - easy peasy! I used the sentiment from "A Big Thanks". I inked it up with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Madagascar Green Embossing Powder.
Around the edges of the background, I used the second flower to stamp in Versamark Ink and heat set with Clear Detail embossing powder. It added a little extra dimension to the background.
Step 3 - Build Your Scene!
I arranged the Koi,flowers and sentiment onto the card front. For the background, I added a border of 1/2"Tear-ific Tape and added Baby Blue Embossing Powder (heat setting). A few spashes of the Aqua Flow were sprinkled onto the card.
Step 4 - Sentiment and Finishing Touches
I added "bubbles", using the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew. I also added some drops of Aquatic Mist Glitter Drops. Luau Green Glitter was added to the flower as well.
I hope you enjoyed this card - and thanks for joining us for our November reveal month!
See you again soon!
