White On Navy

by Lydia Evans

Hi there and happy Valentine’s Day! It’s Lydia here with you today with not necessarily a Valentine’s card but it could work as one.

I stamped the outline layer of the large peony from Beautiful Day in white pigment ink onto some navy card, and masked this off before stamping the outline stamps of the leaves and blossom. I dried these off quickly using a heat-tool and coloured using a white coloured pencil. I added the white colour where I felt the shadows would be darkest.

I then cut around the bottom of the floral arrangement so I cut pop this up on the card, before adding this onto a card base of the same colour I thought it need more of a definite edge so I added the same white pigment ink under where the stamped image would fit and then blended it out a little further than the edge.

I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the same set to finish off the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you again soon and have a great day!

Hugs Lydia.

Absolutely stunning, I have always loved navy and white no matter what form, but I don’t think I have every seen a card using this color scheme when it’s not Christmas.
Well done!

I love this card. I am glad that you used pigment ink instead of Staz-on. I tried this technique before with white Staz-on and it was such a pain to clean up. Your card is stunning!

Hello Lydia: I just ordered this same after seeing your gorgeous card, I was waiting for it to come back in stock and I just grabbed it.
The effect of the white ink and pencil onto the dark blue card stock is amazing, it looks like it’s glowing in the dark, just stunning!!!
I love the way you did the edges of this blooms, like the light is peeking from behind them, I can’t wait till my stamps get here so I can CASE your amazing card.
Thank you so much for sharing.
Big Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.
