Make the Cards Challenge #60: Using a Black Cardstock Background

Make the Cards Challenge #60

Hello friends! Today over at Make the Cards Challenge blog, we want to see you creating cards with another fun sketch at MTCC blog challenge #60.

Supplies used:


This card began with the black background by using sprays and other shimmer powders to create a galaxy background (kinda). I poured some Tonic Lilac Waterfall and Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer Powders onto some Stonehenge Aqua Black Coldpress watercolor paper and then sprayed some Technique Junkies' Iridescent Shimmering Bliss Spray to move the powders around. After these dried, I sprayed some Mindaro Shimmering Bliss Spray onto the black watercolor paper and then splattered some Dylusions Funky Fuchsia Shimmer Spray across the black paper. After everything dried, the panel was die cut with the second-largest stitched die from the Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set and then ran the panel through the die cut panel through my die cutting machine again to add some texture with Ellen Hutson's Twirling Flurries by Julie Ebersole die.The edges of the die cut panel were ink blended and directly inked with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. A black patterned piece of paper was then die cut with the largest die cut from the same Master Layout 2 die set and the two panels were glued together and set aside to dry.

Next, I pulled out a previously stamped and heat embossed unicorn from Pinkfresh Studio's Unicorn Dreams stamp set. (It was stamped and die cut with the same combo of Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink Ranger's Holographic embossing powder.) It was colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers  and then painted with some Iridescent Shimmering Bliss Spray to add shine to the colors. Her horn was made extra sparkly by coloring it in with Sakura's Stardust Gelly Roll pen. After everything had dried, the unicorn was die cut with Pinkfresh Studio's Unicorn Dreams die set. The unicorn was glued onto the black background panel.

The sentiment was created by die cutting a piece of Tessler Crafts' Blue Pearl Paper with Simon Says Stamp's Sending Smiles die set as well as with two pieces of scrap paper. All three layers of die cut paper were glued together for dimension. It was then glued onto the bottom of the black card panel.

A variety of hearts were added to the card that were created from the Sending Smiles die as well as Ek Tools’ Confetti Hearts with a variety of leftover scraps of papers. They were glued onto the card. Finally, sequins and gems from Gina K's Galaxy Sequins embellishment mix and The Ton's Dark Gray Rhinestones Gems were glued on the bottom left and top right of the card panel as well. Finally, the whole thing was glued onto a white A2-sized card base.


I hope you liked my cards and that you join us for challenge #60 over at the Make The Cards Challenge. Thanks for reading!
