A Graduation Card by Jessica

Jessica joins us today with a beautiful ink blended card!

Good morning! Jess here with a bright and cheerful graduation card using the colors from our Spring Inspiration Board challenge to inspire me!

To start I blended Wilted Violet, Broken China, and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks onto a piece of watercolor paper and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls spray for a little shimmer. I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to white card base. Next I stamped the flamingo from Flamingo Together onto Copic-friendly cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored him with Copic markers. I also added some clear sparkle over his body for extra shine. I die-cut him with the coordinating dies and set him aside while I put the card together.

I used the Ocean Wave Borders die to die cut light blue cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from Flamingo Together with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the waves to the water-colored background and then used foam mounting tape to adhere my flamingo to the scene. I finished the card with a sprinkling of clear iridescent sequins!

I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the color palette for our current challenge! Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!

  1. Ha! That’s a really cute graduation card. I love the flamingo. My 2 year old daughter calls them mingo mingos! 🙂
