Blended Colours (by Sandra)

Hello, I am showing some more of my cards from the May show on Create and Craft.

My first card uses the Alium Collage set.
I started with a piece of watercolour card and stamped the Allium stamp in archival ink. I coloured the Allium with two shades of purple water colour markers. I added splashes of colour around the image and then spritzed it all with water so that the colours merged.  I added a border from Making More Marks and a sentiment.

My next card uses stamp from the Just Useful stamp set.
 I stamped the brush strokes using Versafine Clair inks using my stamping platform. I then stamped the splatters using the same inks. I used the letters to spell out ART on another piece of card and blended around the edges of both cards. I mat and layered the pieces onto some toning card stock.

For my last card today I used Ace Card stamp set. 
I started with a 7x5 card base and trimmed about 1/2" off the front side. With  the card open I stamped the script along the edge so that this could be seen when the card was closed. I then stamped the Ace card over the front of the card, masking each layer. I stamped the collage stamp onto some silk card in VersaMark and embossed in clear. I then used a brayer and 2 colours of Distress ink over the top blending them in the centre. Once the inks were dry I buffed the card with some tissue to remove any ink over the embossing. I mat and layered the collage piece and glued it to the front of the card.

 Thanks for looking

  1. I love the simple elegant look using the allium stamp which is beautiful and such pretty colours, and then much brighter tones for the artsy look of the second using a wonderful mix of background stamps, and then the floral playing card in some gorgeous summery colours, and love the ace card masked and stamped to make a fabulous background. Thank you for some super inspiration Sandra. x
