It’s time for the #195 “A Favorite Sentiment” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges!
I love using Scripture verses on my card so I decided to use the verse from the Occasions Mini stamp set, Hold On To Hope and incorporated the flowers from the Painted Harvest stamp set (carried over from the 2017 Holiday Mini) and a bit of splatter from Timeless Textures for a very simple card :-)
The main panel on this card is just one layer and since I did not have my ink pads near me when I created this card, I used masking along with Stampin’ Write Markers for the entire card (I love using markers for omitting and other techniques, don’t you? :-))
I am also participating with the Simon Says Monday “In My Garden” Challenge along with the TGIF #148 “Masking Technique” Challenge and the Addicted to Stamps and More #281 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challengesite to check out the rest of the Design Team’s samples or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- terrific inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the solid flower image from Painted Harvest with a Blushing Bride marker, stamp onto the lower part of a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Ink the more detailed petal image with a Berry Burst marker and stamp over the solid image. Stamp another detailed petal image flower onto a piece of scrap paper (or sticky note/masking paper), fussy cut the image and use this as your mask.
2). Mask the first flower and repeat the steps above to stamp the second and third flower (re-masking each flower as you proceed). ***FYI- I used Flirty Flamingo as the base for the last two flowers versus Blushing Bride***
3). Ink the flower center image with an Early Espresso marker and stamp in the middle of the petals. Use an AquaPainter™ to blend any areas that are missing ink or may be a bit misaligned.
4). Re-mask each flower as you stamp the outline leaf image with a Lemon Lime Twist marker.
5). Ink the sentiment from Hold On To Hope with a Basic Black marker (the words on each top line), stamp onto the panel, then ink the “Made You”, “Carry You”, “Sustain You”, “Rescue You” with the Berry Burst marker and re-stamp onto the panel.
6). Add a bit of splatter with the small splatter stamp from Timeless Textures, inked with the Early Espresso marker.
7). Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Berry Burst cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
8). To finish off the card, apply shimmer to all of the flower petals with Clear Wink of Stella®.
