Hi everybody. I needed another quick card for a birthday girl and thought I would use the technique highlighted this month over at the Group of Seven Cardmakers which is ink blending on coloured card. I used a stamp which came as part of a box set by Sheena Douglass..actually her first.
I found a piece of pink card and cut it to fit a 7" x 5" white card. I stamped the lilies and a sentiment from the set with Versamark and heat embossed using WOW Silver Metallic Embossing Powder and then got out a couple of Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry and Dusty Concord, and using a blending brush I began with the pink and gradually built up the colour around the edge and in towards the flowers, and then built up more colour around the edge with the purple. I then did some splattering with water, not too dramatically, but it does show up quite well, and I attached it to the card...done!
As I said a quickish card with a technique which works well particularly with an embossed image. I was tempted to add a little of the pink and purple on the flowers but decided to leave as is and let the inking and spattering be the main feature of the card.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you'll visit me again soon.
