#the100dayproject : handmade card 82/100-2 : warm light

Posted by Kerry Wills on

and just like that the weekend is over...whomp whomp. 

i decided to try something a little different with the prompt for today - the wheel landed on ink blending and instead of using a stencil or creating a blended background, i wanted to give the illusion of light. i was also able to use a newer stamp set and i love when that happens. 

An encouraging and uplifting handmade card, this front features a lamp with a glowing light around the sentiment "You're a warm light through any hardship." which is stamped in black ink. A bright yellow envelope is shown with the card and is included.

a lamp is hanging from the center of the light grey panel and a warm glow exudes from the bottom of the lamp, creating a nice little ambiance around the sentiment, "you're a warm light through any hardship" which is stamped in black ink. 

i used two shades of yellow distress ink; fossilized amber and mustard seed to create the glow - a little darker at the top near the lamp and lighter as it fades out. i don't think i'll ever get tired of the way that distress ink just blends so flawlessly. it makes me so happy. 

An angled view of the details on this card front showcase a stamped lamp that hangs from the top of the card panel. A glow of yellow light exudes from the bottom of the lamp and creates a background behind the sentiment "You're a warm light through any hardship" which is stamped in black ink.

it's definitely a simple design, but i think that it works. the inside of the card features a light grey panel so there's plenty of room for your personal message to your recipient - and they'll be able to see it.

this card can be on the encouraging side or used for a compliment - there's so many options. that's why i love making all occasion cards without a set reason or event in mind. 

 A flat lay view of this encouraging card, a lamp hangs from the center of the light grey panel. A warm glow has been ink blended as if it is coming out of the light. The sentiment "You're a warm light through any hardship" has been stamped in black ink.

the other reason i really like this card is because yellow/gold, grey and black create one of my favorite color combos. i think it's timeless and classic and i just love it. this is definitely slightly different than any of the other cards i've made this round of the project, but as i mentioned, i like the way it turned out. 

here's hoping this week is an amazing one for you - i've got a bunch of fun stuff on the agenda and i can't wait.
