Hello! Happy 2020!!
This year I am really working towards building my YouTube channel, so I'm so looking forward to getting this crafty ball rolling. :)
I thought this magical card would be perfect start to a New Year celebration! I recently took advantage of my Black Friday purchases and used a bunch of my Trinity stamps and dies; this included Magical Wizards stamps, Magical Sentiments stamps, and the Castle scene builder dies.
I was also able to use up some of my additional colored images from the 30 day coloring challenge, slowly but surely.
To start this card, I ink blended some distress oxides in the colors antique linen, scattered straw, dried marigold, and seedless preserves onto a piece of Canson watercolor paper, which I cut down to 8.5"x3.5".
For the darkest color, I used regular distress ink in the color chipped sapphire.
Once I had the background complete, I used the castle die and Lawn Fawn's Forest border die, to create a silhouette in the distance out of black cardstock.
I also used Lawn Fawn's grassy hillside dies to create two sections of grass in slightly different green colors. I added dimension by blending on mowed lawn, lucky clover, pine needles, and black soot distress oxides in various amounts across each grass piece.
I glued down and trimmed the additional pieces to fit the slimline panel.
From there, I moved on to the fireworks. I used the stamp in the wizards set that looked like shine marks for the tip of a wand and stamped it twice in the same spot but rotated it slightly to create a firework.
I first stamped the images onto some scrap paper with black ink and fussy cut them out in order to see where I wanted to place them, then I stamped onto the main card panel with Versamark ink.
I used gold detail embossing powder and melted it with my heat gun. I then used a Ranger Emboss It pen to add additional details to the fireworks and added more embossing powder.
For the sentiment, I pieced together "Have A WandERFUL New Year" from the sentiment set and heat embossed that with gold embossing powder as well.
To finish the card, I glued down the wizard images and layered the main panel onto coral and black cardstock panels, and finally onto a 9"x4" 110 lb. cardstock base.
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing everyone a WandERFUL 2020!!
