Sparkle and Shine - Pinkfresh Studio Instagram Release Hop

Good morning! Today I'm joining a fun Instagram Hop with Pinkfresh Studio to celebrate the brand new Release from earlier this week. These are also the cards I created yesterday on Facebook Live - so you can check them out HERE if you want to see them come to life!

I had so much fun on these cards creating a watercolor effect using the Fancy Floral Print Layering Stencil, Pinkfresh Studio inks, and Bristol smooth cardstock. I layered up the stencils and ink on that cardstock, then misted with water and allowed the colors to move and blend a bit while they dried naturally - the effect is magical!

This first one I actually created the background before the live - I used Soft Lilac, Candy Violet, Lemon Whip, Sweet Mustard, Ocean Breeze, and Aquamarine for the background.

Panel was die cut with Essentials: Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment from Happy Birthday Sentiments was stamped with Candy Violet, then stamped over the top with embossing ink and heat embossed with sparkle embossing powder - perfect glittery sentiment, and custom colored to the background!

The second version was created live, and used the exact same technique, but different colors - this time Coral Reef, Passion Fruit, Apricot, and Clementine - as well as the same Ocean Breeze and Aquamarine as the first one. Sentiment on this was stamped as the first one - only using Passion Fruit ink to begin with.

For both cards I die cut the smaller Essentials: Stitched Scallop Rectangles from soft coordinating glitter cardstock - then ink blended over the top with coordinating ink to deepen the color. Did you know you could ink blend on glitter cardstock? It works beautifully! The sentiment is hot foiled from You Sparkle Hot Foil plate using Moondust hot foil, die cut with the coordinating dies, and then I just used the one word for this card, saving the other pieces for another card later.

A few sparkly Essentials: Jewels Mix finish off and add just a bit more shine and sparkle!
