Here’s another example of inking over paper piercing – what a GREAT look!
The other day we shared a card with inking over paper piercing and today Allie is sharing a different take on that with this GORGEOUS cloudy background! Cloud stenciled backgrounds are not new to this blog but THIS easy quick technique adds an element of richness that takes this traditional background to a new level. Let’s make one of our own!
Start by running a piece of white card stock through your machine with our Diamond Pierced Cover Die. While you are at it, cut a piece of white card stock with the largest die from our Nested Scallops With Holes set.
Using our Clouds Stencil, apply Sonata Color Fuse Ink from Set #8 with a blending brush to add layers of clouds over the pierced surface. Turn your stencil and offset it from the panel to add loads and loads of built up puffy layers. You will see that the ink will settle into the pierced holes adding even more dimension and detail.
Using one of the dies in our Slimline Grass set, cut a piece of green card stock and adhere to the bottom of your cloudy background with your tape runner. Trim this assembly to fit behind your white die cut frame.
Adhere your cloudy panel to your card base and then add the white die cut frame over that with some dimensional adhesive.
Now stamp, color and cut out our Flower Girl and add her to your card, slightly overlapping the frame, with dimensional adhesive thick enough to give her lift over that frame.
Stamp the sentiment from the Flower Girl sentiment onto pale blue card stock with VersaMark and heat emboss white powder. Trim around the outside of the words with your paper snips and add that with the same thickness of foam tape as you did your flower girl, also letting it overlap the frame a bit on the opposite side.
Stamp your additional sentiment in black ink on a scrap of white paper, trim it down nice and close and layer over a scrap of the same light blue as your large sentiment. Adhere with more of that dimensional adhesive and admire your work!
If you haven’t tried inking over paper piercing these two cards we’ve shared surely have you thinking about it! Give it a try and see if you don’t also just love this easy to achieve effect!
