By layering different mediums on top of each other, you can create a whole new world of interesting colors, effects and textures. Today I am sharing this card of how I layered shimmering Delicata and Radiant Neon inks over each other to create a beautiful and delicate effect.

Skill: Beginner-Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Directions

Step 1

Working on a glossy cardstock, lightly press the Delicata inkpad repeatedly onto the cardstock to create a pattern.

Step 2

Use a circle stamp and ink it in two different colors of Delicata and stamp repeatedly over the background. TIP: Delicata will take longer to dry on the glossy cardstock, so use a heat gun to dry the ink for a few seconds.

Step 3

Use two colors of Radiant Neon ink and stencil a pattern across the entire panel of cardstock.

Step 4

Die-cut some flowers out of patterned paper and ink in the same two Radiant Neon ink colors, blending them for realistic shading. Also dab some ink onto craft stamen.

Step 5

Create a folded card measuring 4×5 inches. Emboss the panel using a script embossing folder. Adhere the panel to the front of the folded card. Adhere a die-cut Eiffel Tower and then the die-cut flower next to it. Add the inked flower stamens to the flower and then finish off the card with some diamanté.
