Holo Fan Flowers - Design Team Mondays!
Hi all!, it’s Jenny here, and I have a super fun card for you today - it features the stunning holographic cardstock in Erin’s store which is a huge favorite of mine. I will say it basically goes with everything!
I wanted to try and mimic the wonderful colors captured in the holographic cardstock by using simple stamping, and I think I almost pulled it off, what do you reckon?!
I first took an A2 panel of medium gray cardstock and placed it into my MISTI (minus the mouse pad), then popped in the Erin Lee Creative Fan Flowers Background stamp. I then selectively inked it up with Distress Oxide inks, which are opaque and therefore show up really well on dark cardstock. I used Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry, first applying the Peacock Feathers around the tops of the fans and stamping, then coming back in with the pink around the edges and bottoms and stamping. I then repeated once more with the Peacock Feathers to get the colors to really blend.
For the main fan flower in the centre, I wanted it to pop a little more so I inked it with white pigment ink first, then added my colors.
I added a few splatters of white pigment ink then set it aside to dry.
I used the Nesting Heart die set to die cut some of the holographic cardstock. I snip apart the hearts first - I also die cut them again from purple craft foam and adhered them together.
I arranged them onto my card panel, which I’d trimmed down to slightly smaller than an A2 size panel, using some extra foam squares for the bottom heart to keep it level due to it overlapping.
I mounted the panel onto a gray card base, and then for my sentiment, I used this awesome one from the Bite Me stamp set, heat embossed in white on black cardstock, the slightly fussy cut out.
As a finishing touch I added some iridescent bubble gems onto the card which I thought co-ordinated perfectly to help tie the card together.
I seriously can’t get enough of this cardstock - if you don’t have any in your stash, now’s the time to invest!
