Monday Happy and Simple – Beautiful

Hello all,

Today’s Happy and Simple card features Heidi Swapp’s Art Screen inks that I brayered onto the panel to create a shimmery background.  This ink dries fast and has a very nice metallic shimmer to it.

To further develop the background element, I randomly stamped a script saying across the panel.  I then stamped an image into the center of this piece that had a few nice swirls on it (I only wanted the swirls here because I was going to overlay my focal point onto this image). Next, I layered a piece of sheer ribbon over a strip of tulle and adhered to background base.  Finally, I stamped my focal point, die cut it out (using a simple circle die cut), and adhered it over the previously stamped image.  This panel was then mounted to a coordinating piece of cardstock and adhered to a white card base.

These quick and simple steps created a beautiful card with lots of layers and depth.  Hope you enjoyed this week’s post.
