Hey, happy Sunday! So last night I made a baby card inspired by this week's Cure for the Monday Blues challenge. And as I really loved the result, I prepared a little photo tutorial about the process. First, the finished card:
Ok, let's get started! This is what you'll need:
Assorted inks -I used pigment based inks, but dye inks will work too-, post-it roll tape, an acrylic block, a stamp set for the sentiment and an embellishment of your choice. I used wooden dots because, how cute are those?
First, let's make a card from a piece of cardstock. Once we have the card base, we'll use strips of post-it tape to cover the card front. Next, we'll release one strip at a time
One color and strip at a time, start sponging the ink on the card, in a circular motion. Once a color is done, cover it again with the post-it tape strip and move on to the next color.
This way we get perfect stripes without the colors getting mixed. The next step is stamping a sentiment: place the clear stamp on an acrylic block, ink it -I used black pigment ink- and stamp on the card. And finally, adhere the wooden dots.
As a final touch, I added a strip of washi tape. The one I used on the card is not the roll pictured, but you get the idea :)
And that's it! A baby card with pretty pastel stripes.
