Hold on Tight to your Dreams

September 14, 2021

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this rather clean and simple card with a stunning background:

Step 1: Create the Background

  • add color to s rectangular piece of watercolor paper using Distress Oxide Inks (Faded Jeans, Prize Ribbon) and a Blending Brush
  • add some water droplets for extra texture
  • stamp some greenery from the Kindness set with Versamark and heat emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink Black Soot

Step 2: Adding the Sentiment

  • add whichever sentiment you like; you could go ahead and also heat-emboss it directly to the blue background
  • I decided to use one of my pre-made sentiments: white heat-embossing on black cardstock to mirror the black around the edges of the panel

I hope you got inspired.
