This is my last post for this month’s Creative Inspiration here at OCS. Today, I have a card as well as a project showing what creative fun can be had using embossing folders and stencils and various types of medium. As this a bit long, why not have a coffee or tea while you read this and hopefully gleam some inspiration and ideas.
This is the finished card that I made using the Butterfly Swirl (Ecstasy Crafts), used with the following Inka Gold colours: Apricot, Rose Quartz, Mint Green and Platinum. Now, I will show you how I reached this finished product and what I played with before deciding to use this for my card.
Unfortunately, the glitter from the Gold 3D Stamp Paint by Viva Decor isn’t showing up very well in the photo.
For the Butterfly Swirl (Ecstasy Crafts), I did two samples: one using Inka Gold (the card) and the other one using the Prima Resist Chalk Edges in the following colours: Pastel Green, Pastel Yellow, Pastel Peach, Pastel Blue and then added some Clear Wink of Stella over top.
For the Spring Flowers stencil from (My Favourite Things), I added Apricot, Mint Green and Ice Blue Inka Gold as a background, which didn’t quite turn out as I wanted it to. I then taped the stencil over the background and used the Pastel Peach and Pastel Purple Prima Resist Chalk Edgers and then added Gold and Silver Atyou Spica Glitter Pens for the centres of the flowers.
I hope this has given you some ideas to play with. The majority of these items can be found at Lora’s OCS store.
Until next time, be creative and have some fun.
