International Women's Day

4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop

Hello everyone! Today’s 8th March 2022, and I am super excited to be a part of the 4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop!

I’m pleased to say that Penguin Palace, among many others are sponsoring this year’s hop. Head over to the Women.Beyoutifully.You IG account to start hopping and discover lots of wonderful inspirations from many talented artists, AND chances to win!

For today’s IG hop, I made this encouragement card which I hope could bring everyone some positive energy! This background was created using Botanical Garden Stencils 360° on our Stencils 360°TM tool, at a turning interval of 60°.

I ink blended a combination of six pastel inks from Catherine Pooler, namely Melon Ice, Mint To Be, It’s a Girl, Bellini, It’s a Boy and Sweet Sixteen. I used one color on each turn of my stencil to create this multi-colored stenciled background without any masking needed!

I Copic colored an adorable image from our yet-to-be released stamp set called Inseparable (a little sneak peek for you!). I used the fade-out no-line coloring ink from InkOn3 to stamp out my image as I thought this would coordinate well with the pastel background.

I clear heat embossed a sentiment “Together We Are Stronger” (another little sneak peek from our soon-to-be released stamp set called Unity and Friendship Quotes!); which I think ties in perfectly with this card’s encouragement theme.

I adhered my panel onto White-Sand Beach – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock which compliments my blended ink colors. Finally I added some gems for a little sparkle. Watch this clip to see the step by step process!

I hope you enjoy this inspiration! And I hope all of us crafters will continue to be kind, positive, and supportive of each other as we take a step forward towards women empowerment!

Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget to head over to Women Beyoutifully You’s FB page and play along in their linky party for another chance to win!
