Gentle Breeze

Gentle Breeze Heather Telford

This week I am sharing projects featuring new products from the new Sunshine and Smiles collection. Today’s card features the ‘Gentle Breeze’ stamp I used with tags recently. For a change I stamped on cold pressed watercolour paper which has more texture to it. My piece of watercolour paper already had some fine splatters of masking fluid on it. I inked the stamp with distress stains, spritzed it, stamped once, spritzed again and stamped a second paler image. I then spritzed the paper which caused  the colour to bleed even more into the background. When it was dry I stamped the image again creating a more defined image in the foreground.  I used a marker to ink a few stems and stamped them over the blooms. When all was dry I flicked a few splatters here and there in red and green.

Supplies:

Stamps: Gentle Breeze, A Sweet Day (PB)
Inks: Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass,Evergreen Bough distress stains (Ranger) Cottage Ivy Memento Marker(Imagine Craft/Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Canson cold pressed watercolour paper, Green & Black cardstock
