Another card, and more gray hair as I try to blog about it! This one is a little bit brighter, and I hope I am, too!
I am entering this in the challenge here: Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Artsy Stamp and here: Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes . Also sending it to Make Your Mark Challenge at Addicted to Stamps since I would like to make my mark in the world of blogging about my passion.
For the background I used Dylusions Ink sprays (Fresh Lime and Vibrant Turquise) dripped on craft mat and spritzed with water. I dragged Adirondack glossy card stock through the puddle and dried it. To add depth, I used a blending tool with Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks and the following stencils: Tim Holtz Burlap and Dylusions Dots and Alphabet. I over-stamped with Dylusions Round the Edge leaf stamps (around the edge), and painted them with water brushes filled with Dylusions Bubblegum Pink and Fresh Lime. I stamped Ranunculus by Stampendous twice--on the background and also on watercolor paper. I painted all flower heads with the waterbrush with Bubblegum Pink ink spray, and cut out the ones on watercolor paper, which I popped off the background using varied thicknesses of pop-ups. Painted ranunculus leaves with Pesto Dylusions Ink spray. Stamped butterfly from Inkadinkado's Meadow set and sentiment from Fiskars For the Birds set. All stamping done with Archival Jet Black ink.
I tried to show the varying depths of the flower heads in second photo. This is my daughter's favorite card!
