Hello and welcome to the Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop! This month we are creating projects using our three favourite Stampin’ Up! Colours. For me, these are: Highland Heather, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose. It’s so hard to choose though! What are your favourites?
If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.
For my project I decided to use the Painted Poppies Stamp Set…
Let’s make it…
The card base is created from Basic Black cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.
Six of the images from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set are stamped in Stazon Jet Black ink. Water was applied to the images using the Large tip Aqua Painter and then ink applied using the Medium tip Aqua Painter. I use small Clear Blocks as make-shift palettes!
Once the water and ink is dried (use a Heat Tool if you’re in a hurry but don’t forget it may move the ink a little), I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to create splatters all across the card front. This is a great technique if you feel you have a little too much white space but don’t want to distract from your focal images too much.
The sentiment is from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and is stamped three times in Stazon Jet Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. These are cut out using Paper Snips and adhered to the card using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (even these tiny ones need cutting in half for this!).
I hope you like my project. Don’t forget to carry on hopping to see what inspiration my Stamptastic Friends have for you…
Happy crafting, h x
