Teal gift voucher

Want to buy a gift for a crafty friend but don’t know what to get? Or, more likely, can’t remember what they already have? How about a Stampin’ Up!® gift voucher. I can make these in any denomination and the card comes free!

Here’s one for Rachel, whose favourite colour is Taken With Teal. It’s not one of my faves but I valiantly had a go!

I coloured the Pretties Kit flower with a Taken With Teal reinker, painted on with the Aquapainter. Actually it was slightly watered down as I’d used it for a project the other week – more about that another time as although it went spectacularly well, it got spectacularly broken before I could photograph it!

Anyway, I then sprayed the flower with some shimmer mist spray, made from isopropyl alcohol, water and a few drops of Champagne Mist shimmer paint. You can’t see it on the photo but I hope that Rachel likes it!

Stamps: Very Vintage wheel
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Handsome Hunter, Whisper White, Vellum cardstock
Ink: Handsome Hunter
Accessories: Pretties Kit flower, clear rhinestone brads, Boho Blossoms punch, Eyelet Border Punch
