Hello! August’s Color of the Month as per Imagine is Teal. Teal is my favorite color, so I was very excited to use it as a focal color.
Truth be told, I don’t own a ton of teal ink, so I pulled out what I had to help me decide what I was going to make. I have Teal Blue StazOn, so that was my starting point. I’ve been playing a lot with photo paper lately, so I decided that would be one of the materials I worked with as well.
I applied the StazOn to the photo paper by rubbing it across the surface. There’s a few residual drops of old irRESISTable paint on my craft mat, so the ink picked those spots up (as you would get from a rubbing), which I liked.
Then I applied drops of StazOn Cleaner to the surface of the photo paper. I let that sit for a few minutes, then I dabbed it up with a paper towel. I also lightly buffed the paper to further remove the ink from where the cleaner was.
Another teal ink that I have is Teal Zeal from the Memento line. I used this along with some pretty snowflakes and stamped them all over the photo paper.
I wanted to be able to get two cards out of this one piece of photo paper, so I placed my card base under the paper, and drew a line where I wanted to cut the piece apart. I also chose to use this pretty Turquoise Double Dot paper.
I trimmed down my assorted pieces and laid them out on the card. Then I chose my sentiment, stamped it in Teal Zeal, and die cut it. I also sprayed it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. You can see in the above photo the nice big piece of photo paper that I can use on another card.
I glued down all of my layers and added some opalescent teal sequins with On Point Glue.
That’s my card for today! I hope you will pull out your own teal inks and play along with the Imagine team. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
