Today I’m taking part in the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge and I am using Stampin’ Up!® Cheerful Daisies Bundle from the Annual Catalogue.
“Make a project using the colours in the challenge swatch.“
These are such beautiful colours together and very easy to use. They blend well together and give you a soft delicate lacy feel….a modern old world feel!
Make sure you head over to Just Add Ink and check what the Design Team have created, make sure you also look at the other entries….better still create a project and add it to the challenge, have fun!
How to make this card…
When creating a card, I like to let it grow…I may have an idea in mind but that doesn’t mean that is how my card will turn out. My layout here is very basic and one that I use a lot ….2 layers on a card base.
My card front or top layer, I like to have a bit of texture. Here I have used the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks & Pool Party Ink to create texture…with the ink darker towards the middle and blending out to nothing around the edges. I also used the Blending brush to add some colour around the edges to take away the stark white of Basic White Cardstock.
The fine detail branches also cut from Basic White Cardstock were coloured with a Blending Brush and Lost Lagoon Ink. I die cut the branches first and then gently run the brush down the branches, taking care not to bend the branches. If you used your brush in a circular motion you could easily damage the die cut. This can also give you more texture as the ink get caught on the edges of the die cut.
The Daisies were stamped onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper with VersaMark Ink and embossed with White Embossing Powder. Using a water painter paint your image with water and then add small amounts of diluted (with Water) Fresh Freesia Ink to the center of the flower, letting the ink flow down the petals. Let that dry off before adding more ink and less diluted. The trick with this I have found (through trial and error….lot’s of errors) is to let your work dry off a little before going back with more colour.
