Sun Style

A bit of Stencil Monoprinting done for this card and for the Retro Cool Release by Frantic Stamper. Normally this technique is done using watercolour paper and a fair amount of water, but I changed that a bit and used 110lb. cardstock, therefore not as much water or it becomes a hot mess. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade, and coloured my sunglasses using doCraft Markers in Black and Bright Orange. For the glass parts, I coloured then pressed them into embossing ink and used clear embossing powder to get the shine. I added the white marker once the embossing was complete. My sentiment is from a sentiment die "sunshine" where I cut the "shine" off. Some orange matting and scattered sequins finished my card.
