Graduation season is upon us. As much as it a joyous time in anyone’s life, you feel the pressure of the final exams, think about that next phase of your life and probably make a big move. Don’t forget the grad in your life, and make him/her a fun, grungy card. I will show you how you can create a simple, yet layered background with fun ruler embellishments and matching sentiment.
Time: 30 minutes
Smoosh the Turquoise Gem VersaMagic ink onto the Imagine Craft Mat.
Spray water over the ink. Smoosh the watercolor paper and create a random background. Dry the paper.
Stencil the gears with the Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink and Inkblusher.
Using the palette knife and modeling paste, stencil another image.
Spray some Walnut Ink, then brush the ink with a wet brush. Dry paper.
Stamp the ruler stamps with the Piano Black StazOn Pigment ink.
Cut out the rulers and ink the edges with the Piano Black StazOn Pigment ink.
