New Design – Sketchy Cone Flower

Hello all,

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!

Card Sketchy cone flower 5.30.18


  1. 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.
  2. Stamp a script stamp across the stenciled background (use pigment ink).  See card for layout.
  3. Use some acrylic paint to create ink splatters across the card base.  Set the card base aside.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Wrap with twin and adhere to card base using dimensional tape.  See card for placement.
  7. Add emblishemnts just below focal image.
