Dream Catcher Card ~ Unity Blog Hop

Hi there, it's Gaylynn here with a dream catcher handmade card for the Unity Stamp Co. blog hop.


Sentiment:  Dream.

For this card, I stamped onto watercolor paper with waterproof ink and then masked the edges of the card front.  I allowed portions of the stamped image to extend into the frame area.  The dream catcher was lightly colored with Copic markers.  I then added layers of distress oxide ink for the background.  I lightly spritzed the card front with water.  Removing the masking tape leaves a white frame look.  For the top portion, I made a gold embossed sentiment topper on vellum.  Finally, I finished with adhesive pearl accents.

Here is a quick video tutorial for this dream catcher card.


Here are the stamp kits used and they are linked further down in this post.

  12. Beautiful card, beautiful images. I love the quiet colors that blend so well with the embossed sentiment. I don't have the SMAK kit, but I do have the Unity Itty Bitty dream catcher, and you've given me a couple of great ideas.
