Who said that you can’t create your own magic? I created my own magic by using a combination of Encore Ultimate Metallic Gold, Memento Luxe and Memento Dye inks in a fairy themed handmade card. It was very easy and fun and you can do the same just using your imagination. Take a look at how I created this glowing teal colored background.
Time: 30 minutes
Take a piece of whisper white card stock and three different colors of Memento Ink. I used Desert Sand, Peanut Brittle, and Teal Zeal colors. Sponge the Desert Sand Memento ink as a base layer around the borders of the paper using a jumbo sponge dauber to create a frame. Use Memento Peanut Brittle to enhance the color saturation. Sponge the center of the layer with Teal Zeal Memento Ink. Spray the layer with water to create a texture effect and let the paper dry.
Stamp the image of the fairy using Memento Luxe Teal Zeal and heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
Stamp the spiral of stars and “Create Your Own Magic” sentiment with Encore Metallic Gold and heat emboss with Gold Embossing Powder. Cut the layer with a rectangle stitched die cut. Paste the decorated layer over the card base a matching teal card base.
