Good Morning! I hope you are having a Wonderful weekend. I am up on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog today with a Valentine's Day card using a stencil and stamp set from MFT Stamps.
Let's get started, shall we? I started my card by ink blending my background with Ranger Distress Oxide Ink. I used Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet.
Next, I layed the MFT Stamps: Lots of Heart Stencil over my ink blended background.
Then, I added the same three colors of ink over the stencil, adding my hearts to my background. Next, I misted my background with water.
I let my background dry for a few minutes, and then I added Translucent Embossing Pastel over my stencil.
While my background was still wet, I removed the stencil and added Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter in Ice White. This gave my background amazing sparkle and shine!! Perfect for Valentine's Day.
For my sentiment, I used the MFT Stamps: Valentine Wishes Stamp Set. I kept my sentiment rather simple, letting my background be the star!
I hope you find the time to give this technique a try!! It really makes a pretty background. I love using the embossing paste and glitter with a cloud stencil too...there are so many possibilities.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
