A young man that we have watched grow from a baby, goes off to university this week. Huge changes ahead for not just this lovely boy but also his family too, who will miss him so much. As I couldn't sleep, I decided to get up and make a card for him.
I started by blending colours for the background, starting in the middle and working outwards using the following Distress Oxide Ink colours: Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Carved Pumpkin. I gave it a blast of the heat gun to dry off the ink.
I then taped the Funky Fossil Designs "Tie Dye Stencil" over the top and used a further two shades of Distress Oxide Ink, using Villainous Potion in the middle and then Wilted Violet out towards the edges.
I decided the image needed something else, so I edged the pattern area using a gold shimmer Gelly Roll Pen, which added an extra dimension.
I stamped the sentiment, part of the Stampers Anonymous "Saying Stuff" clear stamp set in Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.
