I Can Do All Things Through Christ

Hi Friends!

I created several one-layer cards using the retired Stampin’ Up! set, Choose Happiness for the leaves and flowers along with a verse sentiment from Words of Encouragement (a current set still available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store).  

The background was created with splattered distress oxide ink and the flowers were adhered to the front.

If you have not had a chance to stop by the challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful galleries and inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Fold a piece of white cardstock in half for the card base.  Press the Distress Oxide ink pads (see colors below) onto a silicone mat, spritz with water and “smoosh” the front of the card base into the ink to create the splattered background.  Once the background has dried, stamp the leaves and sentiment with Versafine™ Black Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The flowers were also stamped with Versafine™ Black Onyx ink onto another piece of white cardstock  and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the flowers and leaves with water-based markers and fussy-cut the flowers.

Adhere the flowers directly onto the card front (I split one of the flower petals in half), allowing the edges of the central flower to "curl" up from the card front.

Finish off with a clear glitter pen on the petals and a white paint pen for the flower centers.
