One of the Imagine products I received is Fireworks - Summer Sky. Fireworks are a spray ink with shimmer that can be used on light and dark papers for different looks. First I spritzed Summer Sky Fireworks on white cardstock.
Next I spritzed Summer Sky on a piece of black cardstock (lower right corner). Since I spritzed over pallet paper, I had residual spray left on the pallet paper. So I simply dragged another piece of black cardstock and another piece of white cardstock through the residual ink and got these amazing patterns. I continued to move the papers around on the pallet paper to pick up all the remaining ink.
I used a stamp from the Joy Clair Bandana Bits stamp set, stamping it with Versafine Smokey Gray Ink on the white spritzed cardstock.
I also stamped the smaller image with Smokey Gray Ink and fussy cut it. Next, I "painted" it with Memento Bahama Blue Ink using a water brush.
For some visual interest, I scored 5 lines in the opposite corner.
To finish, I stamped thank you with Versafine Smokey Gray Ink which I die cut, then placed atop a larger circle which I added to the card. I also lightly inked across the scored lines for some more definition.
I used On Point Glue to add the pearls to the card. This glue has an extremely fine tip so even the tiniest of items can be glued easily.
For my second card, I used an embossing folder to emboss the black cardstock that I dragged across the pallet sheet. Doesn't it look amazing!.
I stamped image from the Joy Clair Just Kitten Around stamp set directly on the card with Versafine Smokey Gray Ink and colored it with colored pencils.
Using a Spellbinders die, I die cut an oval in the embossed cardstock. Using the white cardstock that I dragged through the ink, I die cut an oval border which I adhered to the card with On Point Glue.
Using Memento Bahama Blue Ink, I added a touch of color around the oval opening, then I placed the panel on the card over the colored image.
Happy Birthday from the Joy Clair Paisley Bouquet stamp set was stamped with Versafine Smokey Gray Ink and cut into a pennant shape. It was matted with a left over scrap and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
