Hi cardmakers and friends…back again today with a card for Memory Box. I’ve been wanting to get this NEW Floral Heart colored up from the Friendship Floral Heart stamp set and finally did this week! YAY!
I stamped and heat embossed with versamark ink and Ranger Gold Detail embossing powder. *TIP: I recommend stamping clear stamps several times with different inks on scrap paper to get them stamping good…maybe it’s just me but after stamping 7 practice times or so, I’m much happier when I stamp the real deal.
Oh, I stamped on Canson Smooth Bristol… the orange pad. I colored with Zig Clean Color Brush markers… photo below of the colors.
I used water and a paintbrush to move the color around…basic watercoloring, drying between layers.
Then a little spritz of water, some white and gold spatters. I wasn’t very heavy handed with them this time.
The background is Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink blended on with a TE brush then some Peacock Feather Oxide spatters, some gold spatters and some black TE watercolor spatters over that.
It’s a 5 ½ inch square card.
I was tempted to place it off the page and made an A2 size card but I resisted and left it complete this time… next time! lol
I stamped the sentiments from the same set on vellum… don’t die of shock but I used an acrylic block this time to stamp! I’m gonna experiment… I love all my stamp positioning tools but I struggle with heat embossing sentiments with a positioner! :O I know… do you have an opinion? curious!
I’m gonna let you go and get on with your Saturday! Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me show and tell!
Here’s what I used to make this card…
