One of my favorite things to do is to make sentiments for my cards using Microsoft Word and text boxes. I print my sentiment first on computer paper and then tape my paper on to the computer paper where I want the sentiment to appear. The only issue I have with this technique is that it is flat and often fades into the card. However, I am about to show you how you can change that!
First, you will need to design your sentiment (and have it printed), Inkessentials Glossy Accents, and some P K Glitter Glitz.
With your Glossy Accents, trace your letters that you want to draw attention to. Note: If you get out of the lines or overlap two letters, you can use a toothpick to clean it up.
Once you have your letters traced add your glitter:
Shake off the excess glitter back into the jar and touch up any letters that you need to with the toothpick. The Glossy Accents will take about 25-30 minutes to dry.
At this point I add my stamped image. I do this at this point in case I mess up the lettering, but you could have it stamped before.
I use Copic Sketch Markers to color in my image.
The Glossy Accents adds dimension, this is a level view of the lettering:
You can do this with stickers and rub-ons as well! Such an easy way to change up the products we have and add dimension to our creations!
