Fireworks!

Hello everyone! I'm on the Tubby Craft blog today, with 2 cards using fireworks! When Shruti sent me the pic of the stamp set, the first thought that came to my mind was New Year!! In India, the Church that we go to has a special firework show for New Year, after the watch night service! It has become a part of our New Year tradition and I miss it so much now! So here are 2 New Year cards that I made with the fireworks stamps.

Card 1:


This is my favorite of the 2! I started by inking an A2 card base with Saphire blue, Chinese blue and Jet Black. It created a beautiful night sky. Then I heat embossed the sentiment and the firework images using Brutus Monroe embossing ink, Gilded Embossing powder and Sterling Embossing powder. As you might have already guessed, I didn't wait for the background to dry!! I was too impatient to try the design I had on mind! So I had the embossing powder in places where I didn't want it. But it kind of gave the fireworks a golden halo. So I decided to leave it like that. Here's another pic of the card.


Card 2:

For the second card, I decided to go with colorful fireworks.


I stamped the fireworks image in Lawn Green, Emerald Green, Lemon Yellow and Imperial Red and the sentiment in Raspberry pink. I had a few boo boos here too!! I didn't clean the ink properly on the stamp before switching the color, which lead to a red-green firework, which kind of seemed cool ;) So I left it as it is. Here's another look at the card:


So how do you like my cards today? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.
