To begin you will mask off an inch and a half along both the top and bottom of an A2 sized card panel. Go in with your inks and do a simple blend using the lightest color in the center and darker colors as you move toward the edges.
Use the Fancy Curls and Flowers Flourish Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul and black ink to stamp across the ink blended panel. Rotate and shift the stamp each time you stamp it to ensure you get a varied appearance.
Press a clear embossing ink pad over your stamped and ink blended area and heat set it with clear embossing powder. This adds a cool look of shine and dimension.
After you cut the strip out layer it onto a piece of wood grain patterned paper and adhere it to the front of a white A2 sized card base.
Next use the Everything is Going to Be Alright Word Phrase Rubber Stamp and, with black pigment ink, stamp it below the colorful strip and to the left. Heat set it with clear embossing powder.
To tie everything together add a few flat backed pearls.
