Hello! I’ve got a new card from Rhiannon to share with you today. Plus, this is the first official sneak peek at one of the newest Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground that will be released on Friday, April 2, 2021. We’ll be doing a preview of the entire new collection on Thursday, April 1st on the Doodles Paper FB Page at 8PM EST.
Drumroll please………………. I give you, the “Gummy Bear” Sparkle Blend! You may love what you see on Rhiannon’s card already, but I promise you, when you see what else is in this Blend (the name should give you a major hint!), you’re going to definitely want it in your collection. Rhiannon wanted to make a birthday card for one of our neighbors, and based on the colors of ink she used, this new “Gummy Bear” Sparkle Blend was the perfect match.
She used The Greetery‘s Pinwheel Party stencils for her focal point. She used Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, and Carved Pumpkin. She applied the first layer of each color heavy, and the second layer lightly (without adding additional ink to her blending brushes).
She added perfectly coordinated sequins from the “Gummy Bear” Sparkle Blend to the center of each of the pinwheels with On Point Glue. Rhiannon even cut the orange sequin, so it would appear to be under the pink pinwheel. She thought the card needed a bit more sparkle, so she carefully went over each pinwheel with the Crystal Sparkle Marker from Spectrum Noir. She also added a sentiment from The Greetery‘s Birthday Blooms stamp set in black.
I absolutely love the vibrant, yet not overpowering, colors she chose to use on this card. It’s so fun and happy, and the “Gummy Bear” Sparkle Blend couldn’t have been a better match. Our neighbor loved the card, which of course made Rhiannon very happy. We look forward to sharing the complete new collection with you during our FB Live this week at 8PM EST on Thursday on the Doodles Paper Playground Page.
