These two products work seamlessly individually as well as when paired together, and as soon as I saw the artwork for these products, I thought of beautiful blue and white Delft pottery. I pulled out a bunch of different blue inks and created this super vibrant card! Let's get started with the details.
First, I began by using the stencil that creates the solid squares for the quilted background from the Patchwork Tiles Layering Stencil Set. Using a blending brush, I blended one set of squares using Caribbean Sky ink, then flipped the stencil over, aligned the open areas on the card front with the open areas on the stencil, and blended Persian Blue to create the solid square quilt blocks.
I used the second, more detailed stencil from the Patchwork Tiles Layering Stencil Set to add the floral flourish element by blending Sapphire ink over the lighter blocks. I love how beautifully that Sapphire blue stands out from the lighter blue squares!
Next, I used the coordinating Patchwork Tiles stamp set to add the little flourishes to the center of each blended flower. I stamped each image using Tanzanite ink and a small stamping block. Once I had added all of the stamped details, I trimmed the edges of the card front so that the images were symmetrical on either side.
I began by die-cutting the Tiny Sentiments Hello Die once from some white cardstock and once from some super dark navy blue cardstock to use as a shadow piece. I left the white die-cut inside the negative, then used my blending brush to lightly blend Persian Blue and Sapphire ink towards the top of the die-cut, creating an ombré “hello.” I stamped the coordinating greeting from the coordinating stamp set using Tanzanite ink in the center of the die-cut, just beneath the die-cut word. I added the navy blue shadow greeting with some liquid adhesive, slightly offsetting it to help it pop from the patterned background. I adhered the greeting with a double layer of foam tape to ensure that it didn't get lost in the busy background!
The final touch was to add some sparkling blue gems to the center of each block for an added touch of sparkle and texture.
Well, that's all for my project today! Thanks so much for reading, and have a marvelous day!
