One Layer Floral Prayers
I had a chance to create a card this evening and decided to try a Clean and Simple (CAS) One Layer Card. I paired the retired Stampin’ Up! Choose Happiness stamp set along with Hero Arts Stamp and Cuts Prayers using masking and watercolor.
I incorporated the CAS(E) This Sketch #238 Sketch Challenge, the Sunday Stamps SSC161 "Autumn Rainbow" Color Challenge, the Less is More #345 One Layer with Coloring Challenge and the Flower Challenge #12 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge (Embossing, Distress Inks, Sentiment).
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- as always, gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Score and fold a piece of 4 ¼” x 11” Naturals White cardstock in half.
2). Ink the floral image from Choose Happiness with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Create a mask, mask the flower and repeat the steps for additional flowers and leaves.
3). Watercolor the flowers, leaves and background area using Distress Inks- Wild Honey, Broken China, Salted Ocean, Seedless Preserves and Blueprint Sketch.
4). Once the watercolor has dried, de-static the lower part of the card front with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Prayers Stamp and Cuts using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.
5). Spritz a bit of diluted Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink over the front and add highlights using an extra fine white paint pen to the flower centers. Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals and background to finish off the card.
