I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Mine is busy with sports – lacrosse and baseball.
Today’s card that I’m sharing was one of the rejects that I was working on from last Thursday’s Penny Black blog post. I was having a difficult time positioning this tulip image for that card. I really like how it looked just partially stamped that I decided to use it for a separate card.
To begin, I masked my cardbase with washi tape and lightly distressed the edges to give it a faux layered look. With the tape still on I partially stamped Promise Me (4384K). I directly colored the stamps with Distress Markers and lightly spritzed it with water before stamping. I then used one of the dies from Triple Banner (51-027) and stamped a sentiment from the Hero Arts mini stamp set Classic Message. It is such a great little set that I use it often when I just want something so simple and clean looking. I placed my trimmed die cut over the stems of the tulips. Sequins were added for a finishing touch.
Until next time!
