I have an interesting post to share today. In today's card, I combined two completely different stamps and created a scene. When you use these unlikely combo, what do you get?
I started out with stamping the Centerpiece with the masking of the jar.
The following were my process of masking.
1. stamp the entire image on a piece of copy paper or masking paper
2. cut out the jar as mask
3. before stamping the flowers, covered the jar image with the paper mask on the stamp
4. with the mask in place, ink up the desired image
5. take off the jar mask (very important), then stamp
I applied ink and colored the images with Distress Oxide and some water-coloring. This requires very little water. I didn't want to spend a ton of time on coloring. this proved to be the easiest and stress-free.
At the end, I die cut the entire image with the largest die from Sewing Stackers. This gives the design a very simple and yet polished look. This Sewing Stackers are truly intricate and gorgeous. I have used only the largest one so far and have been impressed with the details it gives. There is no need to measure/trim once you finish your image as it will fit perfectly into the A2 card size.
Next comes the question..... "Where do I place the sentiment?". Much like a secret garden with hidden gems, why not keeping it hidden? I carefully die cut the image with Thanks & Hello Die and added a few more underneath.
wonderful cards sooooooooooooooooooooooooo real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful! Spring is in the air!
Gorgeous floral scene! Cleverly done!
Beautiful!! The way you added the ferns it looks like a wonderful garden scene! Makes that florals stamp really versatile. Ferns are always a great addition to a card and your garden!
Beautiful combination of stamps and the hidden "hello" is a great finishing touch!!!
Your card seems to shout SPRING from the rafters. Such a glorious combo of colors, spatter and flowers. The way you hid the sentiment is awesome.
Beautiful floral design! Love the coloring!
Great color share. I like when the sentiment is cut from the image. Haven't tried it myself yet, but would like to.
I like how you combined these stamps--very pretty.
