Closing out my week here today! Still trying to remember Spring, florals, and pastels. I had a good time making this card!
Here is my card:
I really liked how this one turned out. It is clean and simple but I think it is lovely. I started with a white cardstock panel (110# weight). I stamped my image (Altenew Wishing You stamp set) offset towards the center with Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink and embossed with Whispers clear embossing powder. I then stamped it again on copy paper to make a mask and used removable adhesive dots to tack it over my image. I cut an oval from another panel of cardstock and used the piece the oval was removed from as a mask around my stamped image. I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks (Broken China and Cracked Pistachio) and sponged them lightly around in the oval with the blue and a little heavier with the green toward the outside. I then very lightly spritzed it with water. I helped it dry by using my heat gun. I removed both masks. I colored the buttercup with Spectrum Noir pens and added some clear Wink of Stella to the buttercup and leaf. I then put the panel in my MISTI to stamp my sentiment because I knew I was going to be stamping over another image and might need to stamp more than once (twice). I mounted my panel on a light aqua cardstock and used yellow cardstock for a card base. I put the white oval on the inside of the card to write a sentiment to someone. See you next month! ~ Gracie
