Outline vinyl sticker

On our recent outing, I also picked up some Elizabeth Craft Designs stickers. These stylized tulips did not look too appealing, but I though I'd give them a shot. I am SO glad I did.

This is a mini card, the image itself is about 3.5 inches long.  This is a mini card 3 by 4.25 inches.  I started with 1/2 of a Distress Watercolor sheet (yes, I am addicted to this stuff!!)  I pulled off the vinyl sticker from the sticker sheet (6 main images for about 2 bucks) and placed it UPSIDE DOWN on my work space.  Because it is a vinyl sticker it can become pulled out of shape when placing on your card surface.  I then placed my paper over it lightly tapping the center, I turned it over to check placement...It took 3 tries to get it to the right spot.

I used distress markers to color the flower Fired Brick and Mowed Lawn , and blended out with waterbrush. The image was outlined in Tumbled Glass and then in Victorian Velvet to create the back ground. I like the bit of glow the blue provides. I dabbed on wink of stella (thanks for the tip-Kristina Werner)  to get some shine and I think I captured a bit of the shine in the photograph.

The sentiment came from the Hero Arts set CL567 - You and Me.  I used super sticky double sided tape to adhere the panel to the card base. Next time I will heat emboss the sentiment, to make it match the vinyl sticker gloss.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. I've only used those stickers with glitter, coloring the glitter with Copics. I was hoping to find a way to use them without glitter, and voila! You've saved me! :) Thanks!

  2. Such a pretty flower, Cat...I can see why you wanted to try it out! I love the black outline of the vinyl and your water coloring is just beautiful! Another stunning card!

  3. Love it! I've been trying to think of ways to use my sticker collection without using the burnished glitter technique. Thanks!
