I’m back this week with a thoughtful card using Brutus Monroe’s “Rose Garden” stamp! Roses have a special meaning to me so I had to pick this one up!
I trimmed down some watercolour paper and put down some ink from my Distress Inks (the oxides will work for this too) in Fired Brick and Abandoned Coral on my glass crafting mat. I mixed them with a little water before also preparing my watercolour paper with water too, to allow the inks to move around easier. I painted both colours on in a random fashion and allowed them to blend together where they met, leaving some areas darker than others. As a last minute decision I added in some gold spots with metallic watercolour paints before scrunching up some clingfilm and covering the watercolour paper, moving the inks and paint around with my fingers through the film until I was happy with it. I set it aside to dry completely before removing the film, this creates different shapes and patterns for your background!
Once it had completely dried, I used my powder tool applicator to ensure embossing powder would only stick to where I stamped. I secured the paper in to my Misti stamping tool and stamped my image using Versamark ink. I coated the ink in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from the area I wanted and splattered it with some gold metallic watercolour paint to add some more texture and shine.
I trimmed a panel from black card stock slightly larger than the patterned panel before cutting a white panel and another black panel using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts once again to frame my patterned panel. I adhered all panels together using Scor-Tape. I stamped my sentiment from Altenew’s “Paint A Flower: Daffodil” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and trimmed it down in to a thin sentiment strip, framing that with some black card also. I popped my sentiment up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.
Thanks for reading lovelies! I’ll see you next week with another card.
