Ink smooshed and glitter paste background kind reminder card

 I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper, and smooshed some ink pads onto my glass media mat, sprayed some water and then put my watercolour card onto this and smooshed it around, drying it with my heat tool in between and doing repeated smooshing until I was happy with it.  I then left it to dry. 

Once dry I stuck it down on a board with some painters tape, to make sure it stayed flat, and using a stencil, I spread some nuvo glimmer paste – moonstone, over the stencil and then peeled it off, this left a pretty pattern that will be just glitter and can see the ink colours behind.  I then left that to be totally dry.


I trimmed this down and stuck it onto my card base.  I then stamped the two large flower images from the Kind reminders stamp set, with versafine black ink, and then using the stencil that co-ordinates with the stamp, and two ink colours for both the flowers and leaves, I coloured the images in.  This was quick and great if you don’t want to spend time painting or colouring in the images with other mediums. 

I fussy cut the two images out, and also the sentiment I chose and had stamped, put some foam tape onto the backs and stuck them onto the card.  I was just going to use one image and the sentiment, but decided to use both.  Finally I stuck some gems randomly around the images and sentiment, and that was the card finished.   

I have a video of making the card.
