Hello Roadie! It’s Angela here to show you my new cards made with the Expecto Stampo Stamps. It’s a super fun set with super fun sentiments for those of you who love Harry Potter as much as I do.
For the background of my cards I was inspired by the gorgeous Kristina Werner and her mini series of Distress Oxide Ink Blending Color Combinations and I wanted give it a try. Particularly, I loved the color combination of blues and greens, I found them perfect for a Harry Potter theme. I didn’t own all the colors of Distress Oxide so I created my personal color combinations.
In the first card I went for three colors: blueprint sketch, peeled paint and squeezed lemonade. I blended the colors starting from the darkest one and when everything was dry, I heat embossed with white embossing powder by Wow! the sentiment Words Are Our Most Inexhaustible Source Of Magic. Love it! As a finishing touch I added two magic wands and I mounted the card panel onto a A2 card size.
For the second card I used four Distress Oxide: black soot, blueprint sketch, shaded lilac and squeezed lemonade. I adore the dramatic effect that a touch of black gives to the card. ‘Don’t Let The Muggles Get You Down’ says the little face of Harry Potter.
Last card is brighter than the others because I used only light colors. Here there are: shaded lilac, squeezed lemonade and peeled paint. I added a few blue footprints to embellish and the sentiment in white. This card says: ” You’re Just As Sane As I Am” and is reserved to a dear friend of mine ;P
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my cards and you feel inspired to create your own version.
