Stamps used: IndigoBlu script and flutterby stamps.
Inks used: Distress inks – mowed lawn, iced spruce, salty ocean and squeezed lemonade.
White embossing powder.
Taking the IndigoBlu script stamp I white embossed on to some watercolour card. Next using an acrylic block I randomly dabbed mowed lawn and iced spruce DI on to it and spritzed with water. I then placed this over the embossed script and let it rest for a few seconds and lightly spritzed with water to let the ink run. When this was dry I then inked up my craft mat with salty ocean and squeezed lemonade DI and walked the IndigoBlu Flutterby stamp up and down until covered. I then spritzed the stamp with water and stamped over the background I had created. When dry I roughed up the edges of the card and edged it with mowed lawn DI and applied some more mowed lawn lightly around the edges. I cut another piece of card and pressed this down on to my craft mat on which I had dabbed mowed lawn and iced spruce DI spritzed over with water. The edge of card I coloured with mowed lawn DI.
I found some toning ribbon, tied a knot in the middle and stuck this on the side of the mat and then stuck the butterfly mat over to the right. I then adhered both mats on to my card front.
I used my P-touch machine to print out ‘thinking of you’, mounted it on to a peice of card and placed at the side of the ribbon.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
