Shades of blue make me extremely happy! When I designed this card, I wanted to combine all the amazing inks available from Imagine and as I hoped something magical then happened. See how I create this beautifully blended background using shades of VersaMagic inks and then top it off with stamped sentiments in VersaFine Clair – a truly winning combination.
Time: 1 hour
Start by stenciling a pattern onto a piece of smooth white cardstock using texture paste and leave to dry.
Once the paste is dry, start blending 3 colors of VersaMagic in Ocean Depth, Aegean Blue, Oasis Green over the design.
Always start with your darkest color first and then add the lighter colors.
Once you are happy with the look, add a final layer of shading over the entire piece with a light shade to blend the colors together.
Use small stamp from your stash and stamp the words inside the pattern using VersaFine Clair Twilight.
Stamp the “That’s All!” sentiment in VersaFine Twilight onto a piece of white scrap cardstock.
Stamp “Thanks” on top of “That’s All” using VersaFine Warm Breeze and trim to size.
Color two or three wooden hearts using your VersaMagic ink and leave to dry. Adhere sentiment panel and hearts to your card to finish it off.
