Love never gives upPosted: March 8, 2017 Filed under: Garden Charmers | Tags: Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress inks, Ranger Distress stains 4 Comments
I`m happy to have some more colouring to share and another new PB stamp. I haven`t managed daily colouring for Kathy Racoosin’s 30day colouring challenge but I am enjoying it whenever I get the chance.
To begin this panel I splattered spun sugar and old paper distress stains over a piece of hot pressed watercolour paper, spritzed it, then dried it. Next I flicked droplets of spun sugar distress stain over the panel and dried them. I was after a vintage, slightly stained look. I used vintage photo distress ink to stamp the branch from the ‘garden charmers set’ then painted the flowers and leaves with the distress stains listed below. The vintage photo ink mixed with the pink and green stains to make it look aged. I then stamped the branch again but with second generation stamping to get paler images around the painted one. Finally I stamped and embossed the 1 Corinthians verse from the ‘All Great Things’ set.
I finished the card with a dark brown mat and a piece of French hemp twine from the 1800’s!
Stamps: Garden Charmers, All Great Things(PB)
Inks: vintage photo distress ink, spun sugar, old paper & worn lipstick distress stains (Ranger) vintage sepia versafine ink (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Hot pressed Fabriano watercolour paper, Olive Green cardstock
Also: clear embossing powder, vintage hemp twine
Yet another gorgeous card! The vintage feel of this composition is subtle but undeniable. Is there a story behind the French hemp? We’ve all hoarded supplies but this takes the cake! LOL
I love the vintage look you have used with this pretty blossom stamp Heather and the second generation stamping and the spattering works beautifully in the background. x
Beautiful card Heather! I really like the colors. I always love your Distress Stain Watercolor cards so much!
Heather, this is so beautiful! I absolutely love this Scripture verse, and I love your flowers! Beautifully done! Hugs!
