Happy Spring!

Happy Saturday, everyone…

Here is my project today.  It is a one-layer card, so I started with Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.  This cardstock is absolutely perfect for one-layer cards.  It is sturdy and easy to work with, and even if you make a card using Copics, you don’t get lots of bleeding through on the back side like with other weights of cardstock.

One Layer Spring Card PT

Using a Spellbinders Labels Eight nesting die in conjunction with a My Favorite Things die, I created masks for this card.  I attached them to the card base using Scotch removable poster tape.  I used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and a blending tool to create the base layer of the background and then spattered it with water droplets.  I have a chevron stencil that I used to add the texture.  I colored my Liquitex modeling paste with yellow acrylic paint because I wanted something brighter than white.  The paint thinned out the modeling paste, so there are some places where it seeped underneath the stencil a little bit.  After the modeling paste dried, I stamped the oval outline and sentiment (MFT stamps) using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The flowers on the corners are Petaloo Dazzlers.

    Thanks, Patricia. I had a lot of fun making the card! Modeling paste is a lot of fun to use – and an excuse for me to get some stencils to play with since currently I just own one. This is not a difficult technique unless you count patience needed for the modeling paste to dry! The Neenah 110# paper is perfect to use because it sure does hold up well to everything!

  • Wow…..amazing and looks complicated but in reading your instructions looks like it is simple enough! Sounds like the 110# Neenah White holds up to anything you want to do with it!
