I decided I wanted to try some different techniques and while looking on the internet I found two I wanted to try so I decided to do both with one card. The first technique is called Reverse Stenciling. I got this technique from Pinterest and I think it originally came from Gina K. I made the background of this card using that technique.
To make the background I first randomly sponged some bright colors (the colors are listed below) onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock making sure there was no white left. Then I put the polka dot mask from the set called Basic Pattern Decorative Masks over the top and sponged Memento Black ink which made the dots black. I thought it came out pretty cool and will definitely try this again.
The second technique I used came from Lydia on Splitcoaststampers.com. If you look at the photo below you will see the sentiment “Cocktails” is shiny. All I did was put a piece of packing tape onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheets on the other side. Then I cut the sentiment from the die set called Love You More Than. The sentiment came out shiny and popped up to add some dimension. The Foam Adhesive Sheets are like Dimensionals only it comes in large sheets.
I stamped the other sentiments and the drink using the coordinating stamp set called Nothing’s Better Than and layered them on a die cut from Tasteful Labels. If you purchase the Love You More Than dies and the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set together in a Bundle you can save 10%. I colored the drink using Stampin’ Blends. The colors I used are listed below.
I am definitely going to try both of these techniques again. They were both easy and fun!
