Windblown tulipsPosted: March 2, 2015
I pulled out a bunch of flower stamps the other day to create some spring themed cards. I don’t expect I will see any spring flowers around here for many weeks so a few on cards will have to suffice.
I worked with Memento markers to create the image above. I inked the petals on the stamp with rhubarb stalk, lady bug and angel pink markers and the leaves with northern pine, cottage ivy and pistachio. I stamped the first impression on the left after spritzing the stamp, I spritzed again without re-inking and stamped to the right, spritzed again without re-inking and stamped lower on the right. The result is paler images from each impression. I also spritzed the whole stamped image sending colour bleeding to the right which creates the wind blown look.
I added a sentiment in black, matted the stamped panel on red cardstock and attached to a white card base.
Thanks for dropping by.
