Happy Friday Creative People!
I want to share this card I made with the Kindred Stamps Limited Edition Toy Box Set and I love it for so many reasons!
First, I colored the Space Ranger with my Copic Collection using the following Colors:
- Skin: E0000, E00, E04, E11
- Purple Parts: V01, V04, V06
- Green Parts: YG11, YG14, YG17
- Red Stripes: R29
- Black Stomach Band: CG08, CG10
- Shading: CG00
Next, I sprayed the back of the set’s stencil with a removable spray adhesive and layed it over my card. I took my blending brushes to my Ranger Ink Distress Oxide Inks and began working on the background. From the top down, the colors are:
- Wilted Violet
- Shaded Lilac
- Shabby Shutters
- Twisted Citron
I really made sure to blend the colors as best as I could to give that beautiful ombré effect!
For the sentiment, I thought it would be best if I stamped it on lime green paper, framed by purple, to really make the sentiment pop. I then attached the sentiment to my Space Ranger and placed foam tape on the back to make it rise. off the paper.
For that little bit of extra credit I was going for (and should have avoided), I used my Ranger Ink Enamel Accents to create my own dots… and I kept trying to fix the larger dots and realized that I couldn’t fix their transformation into imperfect globs. But that’s ok! We’re human, right? And I’ve found that, with almost every card I make, you find that imperfection that bothers you, but you just gotta roll with it (unless it’s something major… I’m not saying that your final product should be dripping in spilled coffee. But HEY, if that’s the aesthetic you’re going for, spill away!).
Now let’s talk about envelopes…
I paired this card with a Paper Source Beet A2 Envelope with a custom liner. Now, I believe the liner print is supposed to be compasses, as it came from a paper set that actually is themed around outdoors and camping. But I really love the colors and how it pairs with the vibrant purple envelope.
And that’s my card!
I’m really loving this Kindred Stamps Toy Box limited edition set, and you’re definitely going to see me playing around with it more soon!
Drop me a comment and let me know what you think!
