Faith In God- Truth Quotes

Hi Sweet Friends! 

I hope all of you are having a fabulous week so far! Today I am featuring a brand new clear stamp set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, Truth Quotes 1  along with the previously released Autumn Mum Greetings stamp set for this quick and fun card.

The main panel is just one layer mounted onto a few layers before adding to the card base so I consider this a simple Mixed Media card :-).

I will be linking this card to TheDaily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge- Day #3 as well as a few online challenges at Splitcoaststampers- the All Occasion Card Challenge for July and the USEIT2016 Challenge (I had not inked Autumn Mum Blessings in quite a while).

If you have not had a chance to visit any of the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the Autumn Mum Greetings large flower image (I omitted the leaves from some of the images) using Basic Black Stampin’ Archival Pad ink and stamp onto watercolor paper.

Also create two masks for the flower image, mask the flowers and repeatedly stamp onto the watercolor panel (adding a few leaves as you create your flower pattern).

Use an AquaPainter™ with ink from Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to color the flowers and add shadows with the Picked Raspberry Distress Marker.

Watercolor the background using the AquaPainter™ along with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Ink and the leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and Distress Marker.

The dark purple made this card a
bit difficult to photograph
Use the Heat Tool to dry the panel and use a modified version of the Vintage Watercolor Technique to add the darker shadows (my modified version uses the Elegant Writer® Black Pen by Speedball® to outline some of the areas along with the AquaPainter® to pull the ink out into the background, leaves and flowers...the main modification is that my panel has color versus all neutrals).

Again, use the Heat Tool to thoroughly dry the background panel, de-static the area for the sentiment with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment from Truth Quotes 1 with Versamark™ Ink, stamp onto the panel and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Apply Clear Wink of Stella® to all of the blossoms.  

Trim the panel, mount onto a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock, trim again and mount onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock before adding the entire panel to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
