TCC109 Let Us Love
It's time for
I love the colors (especially the hot pink) and since I do not own any pineapple or tropical "cute-sy" type stamps, I decided to use the colors to create a "simple" Mixed Media card (the main panel is just one layer, so to me, that is simple) :-)
Since this card is "simple", I will be linking to the As You See It #194 “Simple is As Simple Does”Challenge and am also participating with the Word Art Wednesday #374-#375 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
As I mentioned above, the main panel is just one layer and to me, that is simple, A bit of heat embossing, watercoloring, masking and the card was done! Without dimension is "simple" to me :-)
If you have not had a chance to visit us at The Card Concept or the other challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool. Using Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, stamp the floral image from Wild Rose and the sentiment from God Verses 2, both from Divinity Designs formerly Our Daily Bread Designs) onto the prepared panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the flowers using water-based markers and watercolor pencils (see colors that I used below in the card recipe).
2). Create a mask for the flowers by stamping the image again onto a piece of sticky note paper (or scrap paper). Fussy-cut the image from the sticky note paper and cover the stamped image on the panel.
3). Ink the retired Chalkboard Word Collage (Divinity Designs) background stamp with Tim Holtz® Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and stamp over the entire panel. Spritz lightly with water, tamp with a dry paper towel and gently wipe off any excess ink from the stamped images. Heat set the background lightly with a heat tool.
4). Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die, mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim the black cardstock and mount onto the white card base.
5). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals to finish off the card.
