Taking some time to relax and create tonight using my new stamp design, Sketchy Cone Flower. I paired this stamp with a few script stamps from the Fiskars, Teresa Collins Line. I enjoy flipping through my stamp collection (I have them cataloged into binders) and finding the perfect stamp for the card or project that I am working on. That is the wonderous thing about stamps, there is such a variety out there! I also am finding it extra special to use a stamp that I created myself. So much fun!
- Use Distress Oxide inks with a stencil to create a blended, stenciled background on a card base. Edge card base with Oxide ink and then spritz the stenciled area with water to activate the ink, blot with a paper towel. Allow to dry.
- Stamp a script stamp across the stenciled background (use pigment ink). See card for layout.
- Use some acrylic paint to create ink splatters across the card base. Set the card base aside.
- Stamp the focal image on a smaller piece of white cardstock (use archival ink) and then color with water color pencils then blend with blender pen.
- Matte over a coordinating piece of cardstock (slightly larger then your stamped element). Tear the bottom edge of the matte to create interest and texture.
- Wrap with twin and adhere to card base using dimensional tape. See card for placement.
- Add emblishemnts just below focal image.
