Smiles & Daisies

Hi all, guess what.....it's that time again....for another post.....I will say at least the weather is warming up here and it's supposed to get even warmer this week......woo hoo.....I can't wait for the snow to be gone, it feels like the winter has been so long this year!!! Anyways onto todays post.........

I just love playing with the new Heartfelt Creations Stamps and Dies......so I did a card using them and of course my distress inks!!! It's awesome that the dies match so many of their stamp sets, so you can use them over and over and you aren't limited to just one set of stamps. So here's the card I came up with.............





Products Used

Cardstock: Strathmore Watercolour Paper, Cream & Black
Ink: Ranger Archival Ink Black, Distress Reinkers- Spun Sugar, Aged Mahogany, Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass & Mustard Seed
Misc.: Ultra Fine Flower Soft- Citrus Crush & Raspberry Fizz, Flower Soft Glue


So a little bit on how I made this card......I stamped the 2 larger flowers on the cream cst and die cut them out. I stamped the daisy background stamp onto the watercolor paper, then using the reinkers, a paintbrush and some water, I coloured all of the stamped images in. Then using the glue and the flower soft I filled in the centers of all the flowers, except the 2 larger flowers on the daisy background stamp. then of course, I had to patiently wait for it to dry. :) Now I mounted the daisy background onto the front of the black card and pop dotted the 2 large flowers over top of the background flowers. Stamped the sentiment and border, cut it out and coloured it in with the tumbled glass distress reinker, mounted this onto black cst, timmed and pop dotted it to the card. The colouring took the longest, but I really love using the watercolor technique with the reinkers. So, that's all for this time, I hope you enjoyed my card and mini tutorial..........till next time..........
