Hi there and happy Friday!
I don’t know about you, but I’m REALLY glad it’s the weekend. What a long week! I hope you have something fun planned. Maybe you’re going to get crafty?
Today I’m sharing another card that I made with the Meadow Flowers stamp set from Technique Tuesday. This stamp set is the latest in the monthly Greenhouse Society series. If love florals and aren’t familiar with this series, I encourage you to check it out. There’s even a subscription option!
I started by using Versafine Clair Morning Mist ink, a medium gray, to stamp the bloom multiple times around the edges of an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. I didn’t worry about stamping in the middle of the panel since I knew I would be covering it up. But, when I stamped with this pigment ink, I had no idea that I’d end up using Copics. It ended up not being a problem but you may wish to use a more Copic-friendly ink if you’re concerned about bleeding.
Then, I used a rectangle die to cut out the middle of the panel. I used B0000, B32, B34, and B18 for the blooms, and G40, G43, and G67 for the leaves and stems. When I finished coloring, I used the same rectangle die to cut out three additional layers from scrap cardstock. I stacked and adhered all of the layers together, with the colored panel on top.
I cut another, smaller, rectangle of Neenah Solar White onto which I stamped the sentiment. This time I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
To assemble the card, I adhered the gray-stamped layer to an A2-sized card base and then adhered the stacked Copic-colored piece into the negative space in the center. Then I backed the sentiment layer in foam tape and then adhered it over the colored layer.
Thank you so much for visiting!
