Today I am sharing a card I made using a stamp by Technique Junkies.
I am using the Contemporary Floral stamp once again! I just love it. This stamp seems to be my favorite from the stamps just released in August. Although it would be hard to choose a favorite, I have certainly gone back to this one again and again.
I used my Distress Inks to create a watercolor look on this card. I stamped the image using an Archival ink and I made sure to stamp it on watercolor paper. I actually used a Distress Marker for the flowers. To do this, just rub your marker on either a craft mat, or on an acrylic block. Spritz the ink with water and then use it as you would watercolors. I picked up the color with a paintbrush and painted in the petals. For the background, I used a variety of distress inks in green and spritzed them with water. I dabbed the green ink on the card with a larger paint brush. Once dry, I added a darker green ink toward the center of the card.Once dry... again.....I matted the card and added some clear beads just for some interest. I thought it turned out pretty. A little different from my normal style but that's what I was shooting for.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. If you have any questions just let me know.
Have a Wonderful Day!
