Hello! Today I am sharing my second project as a Guest Designer for Doodles Paper Playground. Last week, I shared a shaker card with the Crown Jewel Sparkle Blends. This time, I wanted to use the elements in the blends a little differently, and this is what I came up with.
This card uses the Ocean View Sparkle Blend and the set has teeny tiny micro beads that don’t have a hole. I decided to add them to the centers of the sequins that I applied around the card. This added some nice dimension to my almost 1 layer card. Here’s a close up of Ocean View. There’s even little dolphins in this mix!
To make my card, I stamped a few of the images from Stampendous’ Paisley Pattern cling set with Twilight VersaFine Clair Ink. I kept the images around the edge of the card, hanging off. Next, I colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers.
I kept my color palette really simple, sticking to the tones found in the Ocean View Sparkle Blend, with the exception of the greens. For my sentiment, I used an old QuicKutz Diesel die cut font and painted my letters with either Bahama Blue or Paris Night Fireworks! from Imagine. Painting the color on, instead of spraying it, gave me an even layer of color and shimmer. The elements from the Sparkle Blend was applied with On Point Glue, also from Imagine.
I don’t usually work with such a restricted color palette, but I have to say, I liked it! These shades of blue really look beautiful together, and the shimmer on the letters stands out more because of the beautiful shine from the sequins of the Ocean View Sparkle Blend. I’ll share another project for Doodles Paper Playground very soon. Remember, you can only get Sparkle Blends at White Rose Crafts, and I have an exclusive discount for you.
