Hello! August’s Color of the Month is Teal. Although teal is my favorite color, truth be told, I don’t own a ton of teal ink. So my challenge caused me to think outside the box and use StazOn stamp cleaner, Teal Blue StazOn and Memento inks in a creative way.
Time: 20 Minutes
I applied StazOn ink to the photo paper by rubbing it across the surface. Then I applied drops of StazOn Cleaner to create the cool texture ink blot effect on the photo paper. I let that sit for a few minutes, then I dabbed it up with a paper towel and lightly buffed the paper to further remove the ink.
I also have Teal Zeal from the Memento dye ink line. Since Memento is a dye ink and StazOn is a solvent ink, the two solutions do not interact with one another. I used Memento to stamp the gorgeous snowflakes and stamped them all over the photo paper.
I wanted to be able to get two cards out of this one piece of photo paper, so I placed my card base under the paper, and drew a line where I wanted to cut the piece apart. I also chose to use BoBunny’s pretty Turquoise Double Dot paper.
I trimmed down my assorted pieces and laid them out on the card. Then I chose the sentiment, “Just like a Snowflake, You are One of a Kind”, stamped it in Teal Zeal, die cut it with frame die and polished with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. You can see in the above photo the nice big piece of photo paper that I can use on another card.
I glued down all of my cardstock layers and added some opalescent teal sequins with On Point Glue.
Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
