Spellbinders May 2019 Stamp of the Month: Natural Dreamer

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a card with beautiful Natural Dreamer stamp set from the latest Spellbinder's Small Stamp of the Month.
This stamp set is perfect for a quick cards or Clean and Simple cards.


I've started by blending Distress Oxide inks onto white panel. I blended Shaded Lilack on top of my panel and Cracked Pistachio on the bottom and mixed them together in the center. 


I blended Black Soot out the edges of my panel to make the colors more deeper and muted and to make the center look highlighted.


Once my background was done, I stamped the image and the sentiment from Natural Dreamer stamp set with clear embossing ink and white heat embossed. Then, I splattered my panel with silver paint for more interesting look and finished my card with sparkling sequins and crystals.


Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
