Welcome to the start of May release week for Neat & Tangled!
Day 1 is for a stamp set with summery sentiments and a co-ordinating die – Hello Summer – here’s my card:
I began by creating the a loose watercolour background – I knew I wanted a sunset in the middle, so I painted washes of yellow and orange in the centre of my watercolour panel, and added lots water to spread the colour outwards.
I made sure the colour was most concentrated in the centre, and then heat set the panel. I then painted washes of blue underneath the sunset and heat set once more.
Once dry, I trimmed the panel down to slightly smaller than my card base and stamped the sunshine image and large sentiment from the set with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I also stamped the sentiment again with Delicata Golden Glitz ink for a bit of sparkle!
I flicked some gold paint ink splats over the rest of the panel and foam mounted it to a white card base. To complete the sentiment, I stamped ‘Hello’ onto a strip of black cardstock with Versamark and covered with Gold Perfect Pearls – I wiped away excess powder using a dryer sheet and then foam mounted it to the card front.
To finish, I added some gold sequins.
Pop by the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what the rest of the DT has created – all the sets that we are showcasing this week will be released on Friday, 11 May at 8am EST in the shop!
