It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Tink Picking Posies – T027 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Smell The Flowers – G189 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Most of the flowers are now in full bloom. It’s so wonderful to see all of the beautiful colours and smell the wonderful aromas of the flowers in our garden. So happy that my husband has such a green thumb and loves gardening!
To make my card this week, I stamped my image and sentiment using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Cardstock. I stamped the image a second time onto plain copy paper and fussy cut around it to create a mask. My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers were used to cut out the sentiment and background layer. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then put my mask over top of the coloured image. Using stencils that I had created earlier with Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Dies (D-05-01), I inked in the clouds using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean. Once this was done, I removed the mask.
To assemble my card, I started with a base using Hot Buy – Cards and Envelopes (5.5″ x 4.25″). I ran the coloured image through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to the black cardstock. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, was applied to the back of the black frame and then it was attached directly to the base.
