Good Saturday afternoon. Before I start talking about my card I want to announce that Brenda of Brenda’s Card Corner had the 13th comment on my blog candy post last Saturday. Congratulations Brenda. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your mailing and I will get your Garden Notes Tulip die set right in the mail to you.
I have a clean and simple project to share with you today made using the newly released Impression Obsession Pink Clouds Stamp Set and Pink Clouds Die Set. I made this card for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge. Our inspiration site this week was a Scor-Pal Scoring Projects site on Pinterest. I was inspired by this card and this card.
I placed the watercolor paper on my MISTI and secured it in place with the magnets. I set the stamp in place, applied Antique Linen ink with the pad and stamped the image. I didn’t get a good image with my first stamp so I applied more ink and stamped a second time. I can’t say enough about how wonderful it is to be able to stamp multiple times using the MISTI. I used a small brush and multiple Distress reinkers to paint my image. I place a tiny drop of reinker in the lid of my ink pad and use it like a palette. Any ink left over is there the next time you need it. I have to laugh at myself because I can never seem to paint anything a pale pink. I wanted my flowers to be pink but I kept adding shading with the different pinks and ended up with red flowers. Once I was finished with the painting I heat set and went back over the bloom lines on the flowers with a red marker. I secured the coordinating die in place with painters tape and ran through my Big Shot to cut.
I scored the lines on the white layer using my Scor-Pal. I set the white layer in my MISTI and secured it in place and stamped the image with Black Versafine. I ended up stamping it twice to get a full image as my first time I didn’t use enough pressure. I heat set the ink and then turned over and applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attached it to the red layer. I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the red layer and attached it to the card base. I applied rolled up glue dots to several key places on the back of the flower branch and attached it to the card base.
Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are having a great weekend.
