Hello my crafty friends and welcome back! Today I am sharing with you the card I’m entering in the Stamping Sensations Monthly Card Challenge. This month, the challenge is flowers. Right up my alley! I went with a Clean and Simple type of card. Let me show you how I created my card.
For my focal image, I used the Single Rose watercolor stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps. I laid down color from my Mijello Mission Gold watercolor palette using a size 6 Nuvo watercolor brush. Once I had the reds, yellows, and oranges where I wanted them, and the green all separated, I sprayed down the stamp with water from my Distress Sprayer.
Once sprayed down, I flipped the stamp over onto a piece of Spectrum Watercolor paper that had been cut to A2 size. After thirteen seconds, I released my pressure and picked the stamp up revealing the colors. To prepare for heat embossing, I heat set the image with my Wagner Heat Tool.
Next, I took the outline stamp for the rose and inked it up with my Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then lined it up and pressed down. When I lifted it up, I quickly moved to my Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder and sprinkled it all over the image. I then heat set the embossing powder using my heat tool.
Next, I die cut my flower, sentiment, and sentiment shadow. The word ‘Hello’ is being cut from some Tim Holtz metallic cardstock and the shadow is cut from heavy weight vellum. Once all cut, I got to applying and putting together. I first adhered the word to the shadow with my favorite glue- Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive. I then stuck and acrylic block on top of it and moved on to the rose. I did the same thing, I attached the stamped rose to the front bottom right corner of my top folding A2 card. I then put two acrylic blocks on top of it to make sure it laid flat and stuck well.
Once everything was adhered on the front, I got to work on the inside. The ‘Thinking of You’ sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and was stamped in red Gina K. Premium Dye Ink. I then took the rose outline stamp from the set on the front and stamped it using pastel green chalk ink. I then moved back to the outside to attach a few embellishments. I decided to use the Copper Rose Jewels from Little Things From Lucy’s Cards. I attached them using, surprise surprise, Ranger Multi Medium Matte. Here are the final products:
I am really pleased with how this simple card turned out. I always love using my watercolor stamps, you never get the same look twice. I like that the flower on the inside is faint because now it is easier to write over it. What do you think of today’s card? I hope you like it just as I do.
