Spellbinders Message in a Bottle

Today I’m sharing my last Spellbinders guest post, highlighting the Inked Messages Collection by Stephanie Low.

My card today features the Message in a Bottle stamp and die set, perfect for sending a message to someone special.

I began with the wave background, using masking tape to create a rectangle on a card base. I then placed a scallop stencil over the rectangle and blended on colour with distress oxide inks. I love the look of these abstract waves

Next, I stamped the bottle image on to a piece of vellum with versafine onyx black ink, before heat embossing it with clear embossing powder.

I stamped the scroll image on white card, along with a sentiment. I added some light colouring with cool grey copics, then I die cut it with the coordinating die.

I adhered the vellum bottle to the card with liquid glue, then used some foam tape to add the scroll over the top. Some sparkling clear sequins are a perfect finishing touch.
