Good Morning! Today I am sharing a couple of cards using the new Meadow Flowers Stamp Set on the Technique Tuesday Blog. This is such a Gorgeous flower stamp set with so many possibilites.
To begin my card, I created my backgrounds. I used Distress Ink and a clear acrylic block. I smooshed the ink onto my block and spritized my block with water. Next, I flipped the block over onto a piece of watercolor paper. I placed something heavy (to apply light pressure) onto my block and let it sit for a few minutes. Once I removed my block I used a paper towel to pick up any extra water left behind.
For my first card, I used Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. The little cubes are the perfect size for this technique.
Once my background was dry I began working on my card design. I stamped the Meadow Flower image with black ink onto my card panel. Next, I added clear embossing powder to the flower images for some added shine. I stamped my sentiment onto a label from the Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies and attached that to my card panel.
To finish my card, I attached my card panel to a black cardstock mat and attached everything to an A2 card base.
For my next card, I used Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, and Twisted Citron Distress Ink for my background. I once again stamped my image and added clear embossing powder. This time I added my sentiment directly to my card panel to keep things clean and simple. I again added a black mat and then attached everything to an A2 card base.
I hope you enjoyed my cards today and give this technique a try. It is definitely a favorite of mine.
My heart and prayers our going out to Paris today. Ric and I were fortunate enough to visit the beautiful Cathedral of Nortre Dame in 2015. It is hard for me to wrap my head around the devastation and loss...so very sad.
Lots of prayers,
