You've Got This
I am having a great time stamping this week and this card was designed using the #tgif58 Color Challenge along with the Mojo Monday #451 Sketch Challenge (flipped the sketch and tilted the panel:-)) , the What Will You Stamp? #67 “You’ve Got This” Challenge and the Simon Says Monday "Summer Garden" Challenge.
I always seem to have a difficult time capturing red shades when I photograph my cards but this card does look a bit better IRL :-). Also, you can not see the pretty shimmer on the blossoms from the Clear Wink of Stella®- my camera is a basic point and shoot so I may need to upgrade- lol!!
Again, I hope you will take the time to visit the above listed challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the floral image from "You’ve Got This" with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of sticky note paper (repeat three times). Fussy-cut out the images and set aside to be used as masks.
Ink the floral image again with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, mask the image and re-ink the stamp, stamping two additional flowers onto the panel.
Remove the masks and color the entire flower with an AquaPainter™ using Daffodil Delight Classic Ink (being careful not to use too much water).
With the AquaPainter™ apply Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink onto the petals and follow with Melon Mambo, blending the ink slightly.
Dry the panel with the Heat Tool and use the Stampin’ Write Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo Markers to add additional color, blending with the AquaPainter™ and apply Clear Wink of Stella® to the blossoms.
Add highlights to the flower centers with the White Gel Pen.
Once you are satisfied with the color on the petals, mask the flowers, ink the background stamp from “You’ve Got This” using Melon Mambo ink and stamp over the remaining part of the background.
After you have finished the background, use the AquaPainter™ to pick up excess water off your craft mat and tap onto the stamped background and flowers (to create the water drops).
Trim the stamped panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, trim once more and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Oval Framelits™ to cut an oval from Pumpkin Pie cardstock (also cutting an oval with the same size die from Basic Black cardstock), ink the background image with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink, stamp onto the Pumpkin Pie die cut and cut both ovals in half layering the black oval behind the Pumpkin Pie layer.
Adhere the panel to the card front and mount the half oval Pumpkin Pie layer to the top of the card front per the sketch.
Stamp the sentiment from "You’ve Got This" with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Framelits™ to cut out the sentiment and mount onto a Basic Black circle cut from the same size framelit™.
Add the sentiment along with the Gold Cord and Pearls to the card front to finish off the card.
