Pretty Potted Floral Birthday
While I had the colors out for the Splitcoaststampers CC649 Color Challenge for my previous post, I decided to create another quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card for a few more online challenges.
This card uses the Pretty Potted Florals Clear Stamp Set (designed by NinaB Designs) along with Long Stem Silhouettes (designed by Korin Sutherland) – both available at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.
I am also linking this card to Joanne's PP358 "Clean and Simple: Get Colouring" Challenge at The Paper Players along with the Seize the Birthday “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Pretty Potted Florals image using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing powder has cooled, use a water brush with ink from the Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Markers to watercolor the image. Fussy-cut and set aside.
2). To create the background, slit open an acetate envelope (I use the clear envelope packaging from the SNSS stamp sets:-)), scribble ink from the Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist markers onto one half of the envelope, lightly spritz with water, close the envelope and “smoosh” the ink around, re-open the envelope and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink.
3). Trim the background, stamp the sentiment from Long Stem Silhouettes using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink and mount onto a piece of gray cardstock. Adhere the entire panel onto the white card base and add the fussy-cut flower with dimensional foam.
4). To finish off the card, use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals and the Extra Fine White Sharpie® Paint Pen to add white highlights to the flower center.
