I started out by stencilling the background with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide. The car and sentiment were stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used the matching die to cut out the car. The dancing couple was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and also die cut. Golden sequins were added with mini glue dots and I stamped the music notes to finish the card. I also wiped the black inkpad along the edge of the card front.
A peek inside:
I did a little more stencilling inside using the same ink applicator but without adding extra ink for a lighter shade of blueprint sketch, stamped another sentiment from the stamp kit and die cut the car again this time stamped in black and inked with Blueprint Sketch distress oxide.

The sketch was inspired by this week's My Favorite Things sketch although with a little twist:

That is a fabulously unique card. I saw the Hero Arts kit but didn't get it because I didn't have a vision of how to use it. You did a splendid job. The lighter inside stenciled design is a good idea because it allows a place for a handwritten message. Thanks for the great inspiration.ReplyDelete
Thanks Lynn. It definitely is a unique kit, I've really enjoyed using it although it's so unlike any other stamps I have!Delete
