My Favorite Things June Release | Day 4

Hi everyone! Today is the second day of the My Favorite Things June release countdown. This release is packed with amazing new products and I hope you’ll have fun with our preview projects!

The new products will officially be available on the MFT online store on June 5th at 9:00 pm EST (= Europe: June 6th at 3:00 am CET).

Today, I’m showcasing the newest Gill Friends stamp set by Birdie Brown:





Most of the supplies I used for this project are linked at the bottom of this post. I went for a clean and simple card featuring an underwater scene. I really like how it turned out. The fishes pop against the background and there is so much depth. I first blended Distress inks over a white cardstock panel and then I blended again using the Sunrise Radiating Rays stencil. I added tiny white dots here and there. It looks like the sun rays would shine and sparkle in the water. I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. I die cut the panel using the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX (set 2) and fixed it to a top-folded white card base with foam adhesive for more dimension. I stamped, colored and cut the fishes. To finish off my card, I adhered them to the panel using foam pads.

I absolutely LOVE this card. The background is so dramatic. What did you use for the sun rays stencil? Did you use a white ink pad to lighten that area? or did you do the revers and darken the rest?

AndreaH said...

Spectacular card. The depth of your background makes the fish really POP.
