Happiness (and Glimmer Mist) Card

Just a quick post tonight-here’s another card made with one of my favorite stamps sets, "Happiness," from Artistic Outpost.


I used watercolor paper and Copic pens to color the image (stamped with Palette Black103_0596a  Noir), and then used my Copic blender pen to blend and highlight the colors a bit.  I distresse the cardstock, patterned paper, and watercolor paper with Ranger Distress Inks (listed below) and a sponge, and then misted the stamped and colored image with Honey Dew Glimmer Mist.  I added a bit more Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges after using a pinking cutting blade in my paper trimmer to trim it to size.  I finished off the stamped image by using a gold Copic Spica pen to highlight the butterfly-hard to pick up in the photo.

For the "Happiness" sentiment, I used a scrap of coordinating Sweet Baby Jane paper, and stamped Happiness in Black Noir ink.  I crumbled the paper, unfolded in and using Vintage Photo ink, swiped the ink over the "high" places (the wrinkles).  I then distressed the edges and adhered it to the card front.

I attached a piece of purple and green striped May Arts ribbon to the cardfront, and then placed the stamped image over that.  The buttons were attached with Matte Accents (by Ranger)-excellent product for attaching almost anything!
