I hope everyone had enjoyed all the wonderful projects created using the Misti and Joy Clair stamps. I am usually behind the scenes during the the blog hops, but I decided this time I would join in. We are close to the end of the hop and I am blown away by all these creative ladies and their wonderful projects!
Today I am going to show you how I created this card using the Misti and some Joy Clair stamps.
I wanted a very organic non traditional look to this, I have had this idea in my head for sometime to create something that was just a little different but still simple.
The supplies I used are:
- The Misti
- 2 A4 size cuts of water color paper
- A4 size card
- Spring Time Flowers Clear Stamp Set
- Hello Sentiments Clear Stamp Set
- Ranger embossing ink
- Ranger embossing powder (silver)
- Ranger embossing powder (white)
- Heat gun
- Water color paints
- Double sided foam tape.
- Silver ranger stamp ink
- Double sided tape
I started out by setting up my stamps where I wanted them to go. Since I am going to have a layered look I wanted to make sure they would look right so I lined them all up to start out with.
I embossed the sayings-Sending birthday wishes first using the embossing ink and the silver Ranger powder.
After I let that cool back down I went ahead with my water color and did a wash over that part of the card and let that dry.
On the second sheet of water color paper I stamped the two dandelions and embossed them with the shimmery white.
I also did a water color wash over this and let it dry.
After everything was dry I cut out my sentiment. I wasn't going for a particular shape I wanted to to flow at the bottom. After that I rubbed some silver ranger ink around the cut edge to give just a hint of silver to go along with the embossing.
Using the double sided foam I placed the sentiment on the main water color part of the card. Then using regular double sided tape I placed my card face on my A4 size card.
I hope you like the results as much as I did.
