Hello! Just popping in to share a card I did with a recent Studio Calico Card Kit. (Actually, it was a Card Kit Add-On called Athens.) I really liked the stamp set in this particular kit – one of my favorites so far. I am a sucker for any set that says “you are missed!”
I really wish this photographed better. White on white is tough…
I started out by applying Viva Platinum Metallic Modeling Cream along the edge of a Hero Arts Snow Notecard over the Tim Holtz Stripes Layering Stencil. I LOVE this look in real life – I wish you could see it! A pearly look + dimension.
I stamped the Studio Calico stamp images with Black Memento Ink on Neenah Cardstock. I then used Copic Markers to color them in. (YG67, YG23, YR14 and R14. That touch of red? Love it.) After cutting them out, I added them to the card with foam adhesive. Oh, and those gold dots? Those are the BasicGrey Metallic Candy Buttons. These are amazing – like a smooth drop of encapsulated glitter. The perfect touch.
Here is another look at that textured background. Wish you could see it in real life!
I thought I would show you what the stamp set looks like. Several good images on there that I didn’t use, too…
