Two color sentiment

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi everyone!
Svitlana is here. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Today I want to share a card featuring  two dimensional background and two color sentiment.


After my focus post for Altenew January release I was asked a lot how I made a multi-color sentiment on one of the cards. So I decided to film a video showing how I did this. This post is a very special one for me as this is my first craft video ever (eek!).

To start off I stamped flowers from Persian Motifs stamps set. To create two dimensional effect I took an A2 card base and a panel of the same size. Stamped the same design onto both of them (only used different inks, Paper Bag for the card base and Dark Chocolate for the panel). Next I cut a quarter of an inch from each side of the panel.

Then I moved on to stamping the sentiment, using thanks stamp from Super Script 2 set. First stamped the sentiment using Dusk ink. Next – masked flowers, that are overlapped by the sentiment and stamped over with Dark Chocolate ink. As the masking paper have some thickness – some parts of the sentiment were stamped perfectly right next to the mask. It's better to keep this in mind cutting out a mask. It has to be a tiny bit smaller then a stamped image. But if some boo-boo happened – it's easy to correct. I used Fantastix tool (which is a pencil shaped thingy made of foam), but a small brush would work the same.

In the video you can see the process in action.

I should notice that I used my MISTI for stamping, but that's definitely doable using any other stamping tool (like a stamp positioner, stamp press or even regular acrylic block). Have to admit – I'm a very bad stamper. It's very hard for me just to stamp straight, not speaking of some advanced stamping. But I know most of you don't have these problems I do.

Another thing I want to point out – I used Eclipse masking paper for masking (which is discontinued by now I believe). There are another masking papers on the market, but for this technique you don't really need one. Just a sticky note or printer paper adhered with some temporary adhesive or a piece of washi tape will work as well.

Hope you like my card and enjoyed watching the video.
Have a great day!

Congrats on your first video! WELL DONE. I adore the idea of the sticky back foam too!

Svitlana Shayevich February 23, 2016 - 9:52 AM

Thank you, Vicki! I used to color side of white color with COPICs, to achieve color more matching cardstock used. But using colored foam is much easier for sure.

I got it :)

Great video! I agree with the others above… perfect editing that you sped up what could be and paused long enough in the right places for us to know what you were doing. Refreshing to learn a technique without losing 12-15 minutes of your life to do it and have to hear the same things over and over again. Love it! Wish more would consider abbreviated, wordless videos so we could just get to the point and get back to crafting :-) Hope you do more videos in the future!

Svitlana Shayevich February 23, 2016 - 5:39 PM

Thank you, Karen!
I appreciate you spent time leaving this detailed comment. I didn’t see that a short video without a voice over can have some pluses as well.
Thank you a lot!

This music is from YouTube Audio Library (just google these three words), called “In the Land of Rhinoplasty”. It’s free to use in YouTube videos.
