Picket Fence Studios has a new release and I just had to order! To create this card, I used “BFF Claire” stamp and die and a sentiment from “Natural State if Sarcasm”.
I had to order because my daughters name is Claire and she wears glasses so…
I’ve ordered from Picket Fence previously. I’m a big fan of their creative and fun sentiments. This set is just hilarious. Had to have it too.
My order arrived yesterday, so I really wanted to stamp and color this cute girl. I colored her using my Copic markers.
I felt like I needed a little something in the background, so I used this stencil with Distress Oxide ink. I really do enjoy using these brushes with stencils.
Have you tried Pixie Spray yet? It works amazingly with stencils. Just spray it on the back of your stencil, wait about 30 seconds and you are good to go. It gives a light adhesive and holds your stencil in place while you ink it up. I love it! It’s probably one of my favorite products right now.
After I made my background, I put it in my MISTI and placed Claire so I could stamp my sentiment. I stamped it twice with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to get a nice, bold image. Next, I wanted to pop Claire up, so I die cut her out of white, fun foam and glued it to the back of my colored, die cut girl. This is a really inexpensive and easy way to add dimension.
I bought my fun foam at Pat Catan’s. It was so cheap; I bought a bunch! This is the finished result of adding the foam to Claire.
I was pretty happy with how this snarky card turned out.
