Love is Like Wildflowers
Merry Christmas Eve!! I decided to take a quick break from Christmas cards (I will be posting more Christmas cards later today and tomorrow :-)) and pulled out Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps (SNSS) Wildflowers Clear Stamp Set and Grunge Elements with Grunge Elements 2 (all available at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps) to create a CAS Mixed Media card.
I decided to incorporate the December 2016 CAS Watercolour “Watercolour Resist” Challenge as well as the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS253 Color Challenge into the design.
To create this card:
1). Ink the SNSS Wildflowers floral image with Versamark™ ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
2). Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor with elegant eggplant, bermuda bay and pear pizzazz ink using a waterbrush.
3). Use a paper towel to wipe off the ink from the embossing areas, stamp the hearts from SNSS Grunge Elements 2 and splatter from SNSS Grunge Elements with a mixture of the elegant eggplant and bermuda bay inks.
4). Ink the sentiment with elegant eggplant ink and stamp in the upper corner.
5). Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die and adhere to the bermuda bay card base with dimensional foam.
I had fun designing this quick card and hope I have inspired you to create something this week!
