Hello there inky friends! It's Kerry here and I'm back with a fun collaboration post featuring stamps of Joy Clair and Ink/embossing powder by Imagine Crafts! All this month we're featuring fun projects that combine these two fine products and I'm excited to share my first one with you today. This card combines the fun Mermaid at Heart stamp set and the yummy Versafine Clair inks and Embossing powders.
I used the perfect Versafine Clair Nocturne and Warm Breeze ink and ink and the Iridescent MBossing Powder as with all other Versafine inks, the images stamp crisp and clear and provide a perfect foundation for embossing powder. I love the ink so much. I chose the Iridescent embossing powder for this project because it creates such a fun sparkly water effect over my ink.
To create the background, I blended the Warm Breeze ink onto the cardstock (I applied it sparingly but purposfully to create a water-like effect. After distressing, I applied some embossing powder over this ink and heat it up to create the permanent sparkly sheen on my paper.
I trimmed the panel down to allow for a more centrally focused card and stamped/colored and fussy cut the mermaid tail image to apply to the card panel. Next, I added some stitching for an additional textural layer. I stamped the sentiment and applied some bling for additional sparkle.
To finish my card off I attached the panel to my card base and tied some coordinating ribbon around the top.
Thanks for popping over to check out my card. I hope you were inspired by my creation! See you again soon!
