These cards were
inspired by video that Jennifer McGuire posted about a week ago. I used my Gina K 4”x 4” wreath builder template with the Ranger Distress Oxide inks and stenciled the corners of the cards. Next, I cut I cut 4.25”x 8” cardstock for my
card base. I LOVE this technique that
Jennifer shared with us in her video. I
am looking forward to using this technique in the future.
I love to use small images in a stamp set to create a background, so I decided to create a wreath type background with the small floral stamps. I used heavy 110lb cardstock and alcohol marker safe ink to stamp my images. One tip to remember – in order for this process to work your cardstock needs to be square. I positioned the bouquet style stamp and stamped it and then turned my cardstock in my MISTI and stamped again. I repeated this twice more until I had stamped four times. I repeated with the other stamps.
I colored with my Spectrum Noir Triblend alcohol markers. I used Dull Green, Light Green, Ice Blue, Coral, Purple, and Citrus blends to color my flowers. I decided I wanted to add the fawn image, so I stamped her and colored her with the Earth Brown and Golden Brown blends with a bit of Light Pink for her eyelids and ears.
To finish off the card I stamped the banner image with gray ink and stamped my sentiment with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink. I hope you’ll watch my video below to see just how I created this card!
