Hi dear friends! Martha Lucia here to share with you the brightness of summer. In this opportunity I created a colorful summer card using texture paste, stencil and embossing powder.
I love this season, it’s a transition between the spring and summer and the colors of the flowers are gorgeous, but at the same time the temperature starts to rise. The thought of this was the design behind my card. To create the decorated piece I used whisper white cardstock. First off, I used the Tropical Stencil from Hero Arts and the Texture Paste from Ranger to create the background. I applied the paste using a palette knife and I allowed the texture paste to dry. After this I gave the whole background color using three different colors of Distress Ink: Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade. I applied these with a blending tool.
The base of my card is basic black. I pasted the decorated piece over the base using sticky strip.
Then, in a piece of whisper white cardsock I stamped a round sentiment using Versamark. I covered it with Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. I melted the powder with my heat tool and layered this piece over another black circle and created round loops with gold baker’s twine. I pasted the entire piece over the background using dimensionals and glue dots.
