I just love seeing how everyone interprets our stamps in such different and interesting ways and this week our Guest Designer Brenda has created a zingy garden by combining a stamp from the East with one of the stamps from our Fairy Collection. Over to you Brenda.
Hello to you all, Brenda here again, this time with a card using the gorgeous Chocolate Baroque Indian Textiles and June Fairy stamp sets.
- I started by dabbing Distress Inkpads Mustard Seed and Broken China on to a craft sheet and spritzing liberally with water then dragging the reverse side of a piece of single sided cardstock through the wet inks.
- When dry, I use a heat gun to speed the process. I took the lids from two different sized pots of embossing powder and ‘inked’ the edges with the same two distress inks and randomly ‘stamped’ circles onto the inked cardstock. It’s a good idea to give another quick blast of the heat gun before moving on as distress ink can tae a little time to dry.
- Using a Versafine Black Inkpad I stamped the large flower from the stamp set, added Detail Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. Next I bleached out the colour from the flowers using household bleach and a fine paint brush.
- I coloured the bleached out flowers with Dylusions Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine and Vibrant Turquoise. I then stamped the trailing Ivy from the June Fairy stamp set an also added a hint of Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise to the berries.
- After matting and layering on to co-ordinating cardstock I added a matching organza bow.
Many thanks for visiting us today and you can find more of my work on my blog Floral Fantasies.
Such a beautiful and bright card to put a smile on all our faces, thank you Brenda. Can't wait to see your third and final post next week.
