Stamping with Color Lacquer!
Hello, This is Jennifer from The Stamp Addict in San Diego, CA. I just want to say how thrilled I am to have been selected to be on the Sakura Hobby Crafts design team! I was so excited when I found out I was going to be on the team and when I got this months box of goodies to play with, but before I got to play I was hit with this bad cold that I have been battling for 2 weeks now. So I am going to post one of the other cards that I made when I was creating what I posted for my personal blog when trying out for the Design Team. I promise my next project will be spectacular.... I've got several ideas I already know I want to try with the great products from Sakura!
For this card, I used the Memory Box Flower Bundle stamp for this project and applied the Sakura Color Lacquer Violet and the Green from their Pearl Color Set B directly on the stamp rubber then stamped it on cream shimmer paper. I then immediately cleaned my stamp under running water with a soft bristle brush. It is much easier to get the lacquer off before it dries so don’t skip this step if you are trying this at home, which I highly recommend….it was a lot of fun! It took a little while for the crystal lacquer to dry on the shimmer paper but it was worth the wait. I then trimmed down my image, cut a lavender piece of cardstock a little bigger and a teal shimmer paper piece even larger then arranged them on my base card of dark purple. One the pieces were all taped down with double sided adhesive tape I put the finishing touch on the card by squeezing three pearl dots of the Green Pearl Color Lacquer onto the top left and bottom right corners of the card.
I hope you like it! I sure had fun making it!
