I still have lots of cards to share even though I wasn't home last week to stamp. Today's card is one that we made at my March stamp club. We did a bit of embossing, a bit of water spritzing and a bit of watercoloring to make this beauty.
The card base is Cucumber Crush a soon to be retired In Color. Hopefully you all have placed you orders for inks, papers and embellishments in the retiring colors. They aren't lasting long and some items have already sold out. Cucumber Crush is a nice fresh green for spring.
Next the sentiment is stamped in black onto a Whisper White panel and a bit of white organza ribbon (also retiring) goes across the side. This is a great design to just switch out the sentiment for a thank you, or thinking of you or we even did some Easter greetings in class.
To make the rose we stamped it in Versamark onto Shimmery White card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder. Next, we spritzed the image with water so that we had little pools of water in each of the petals and leaves. Then we took an Aquapainter and reinkers and dabbed, swirled and painted our colors on the image. There is no wrong way to apply the ink for this card. From the center out, we used Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder (also retiring). The Cucumber Crush ink was used on the leaves. Using the heat gun again, dry the image and then cut it out. The rose image comes with another little leaf attached but we cut that one off and just used the bigger leaf but cut it off and repositioned it. The rose is popped up with dimensionals.
Just like I told my stampers....way easier than it first looks!
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
