Welcome back to Super Saturday. You can also see today’s post on the Magenta blog here. We’ve received a record-breaking amount of snow in the Pacific Northwest in February. I was snowed in for a few days, so I decided to make a card to remind me spring was coming soon.
To create this card, I made a mask by stamping the Potted Flowers on a piece of masking paper and then cutting it out. In my MISTI stamp positioner I lined up the stamp where I wanted it on a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” white cardstock and then placed the mask over that area.
Using an ink blending tool I lightly applied Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks around the mask – be sure to use a light touch so that you don’t get a ridge of ink that can’t be blended away.
I removed the mask and added more ink, overlapping lightly into the area that would be stamped. I added Broken China and a touch of Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink to the blue part of the background and blended until there was a smooth transition of color.
When the ink was dry, I returned the cardstock to my Misti and stamped the Potted Flowers with VersaFine Black Onyx ink.
When the ink was dry, I colored the image with colored pencils (the colors are listed below.) I returned it to my MISTI one last time, stamped with VersaMark ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Lastly, sprinkled a bit of water over the blue inked area.
I trimmed the image down and matted it to a piece of black cardstock and then to a piece of purple cardstock before adhering it to a white, A2 card. I added a few clear Nuvo drops on the petals and leaves.
For the sentiment I shaded a piece of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. When the ink was dry, I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Black Onyx ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I trimmed the sentiment down and added it to the card with a piece of foam tape for some extra dimension.
