CC491 To Someone Special- A Botanical Study :-)
It’s Monday night again and time for a new CC491 “Blackberry Saffron Bay” color challenge at Splitcoaststampers!! The luscious colors this week are Bermuda Bay, So Saffron and Blackberry Bliss and the “dessert” is to add a sentiment.
Whenever I create a card with a color challenge, I normally end up creating two cards- just seems to work out that way :-)
If you have not had a chance to do, I hope that you will take a moment to visit the gallery and join in on the fun!
To create this card:
Ink the images using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, re-ink the stamps and stamp the second image onto a sticky note or scrap paper.
Color the images on the Whisper White cardstock using an AquaPainter™ with Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss and So Saffron Classic Ink. Use the corresponding Stampin’ Write markers to add shadows and definition to the watercoloring and use a Crumb Cake marker to add shadows.
Apply the masks created in the first step to the images. Ink the retired background stamp, En Francais using Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp over the masked images. Remove the masks and trim the images to create the individual panel.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake Classic Ink to add additional distressing to the edges and also to “antique” the Whisper White cardstock. Use the retired Color Spritzer Tool with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit more distressing and add a few highlights with the Chalk Marker.
Mount the panels onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock, arrange onto a piece of retired I Am Me Designer Series Paper (DSP), trim and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, “huff” onto the background stamp to re-moisten the Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp over the sentiment.
Sponge additional Crumb Cake Classic Ink onto the image to distress a bit and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Trim and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and add the Blackberry Bliss photo corners along with the Venetian Crochet Trim at the bottom.
Mount a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the So Saffron card base, add a piece of So Saffron cardstock and mount the main focal image panel to the card front.
Add the sentiment layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals® . Finish the card off with Pearls on the sentiment layer and in the corners of the focal image panel and the 3/8" Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon Double bow in the corner :-)
