Hello everyone, I have created a couple of floral projects for your inspiration, using stamps from the Spring Fairy Collection stamp set. I like to use the often overlooked smaller stamps from a stamp plate to create all occasion cards, and these cards are no exception.
For my first card, I used the same stamp to
create both the background, and main image for the card. I stamped the image
using Versamark and white embossing powder randomly over a kraft
background, and then heat set the images with a heat gun. I coloured the
images with Zig Clean Colour markers and a water brush.
stamped the main image onto a piece of die cut smooth watercolour paper,
inking the egdes of the background with Distress Ink whilst the die was
still in place, so that there would be a white border around the oval. I
coloured the image with Zig Clean Colour markers. I punched two holes
through the oval, and threaded the ribbn through the holes from the
back, so that I could tie a bow at the front. I left two longer pieces
behind the card, which I adhered to the kraft background, as I stuck the
main image down. I coloured the ribbon with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and water, so
that I had a good match to the colours that I had used in my project.
You might have
seen this card on the April TV shows on Hochanda:
my second card, I cut a strip of smooth watercolour card, and coloured
it using Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, blending them where
they met. I stamped the flower image, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, graduating the height of the
flower across the background. I added a couple of butterflies from the
same stamp set, and a sentiment from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle stamp set. Finally, I mounted the background onto a black card blank.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
