Hi everybody. I haven't used this Lilac stamp from Justrite for ages and I needed a quick card for a birthday on Wednesday which needed to go in the post asap, so I kept it quite simple.
I used a scalloped edge set of square dies from Tonic and cut the snippet of white card. I decided to use the straight to stamp technique using a set of Lyra Water Brush Pens and my Misti so I could keep going over with the different colours. I used a light blue, then a dark blue first adding the marker to the stamp and spritzing with a little water. I then added a little more colour by scribbling the markers on my glass mat and using my waterbrush. I left a few white places to add some light. I then used a couple of greens, light and dark, for the leaves and stem. When it was all dry I decided to be bold and get a little more definition by adding some red and I must say I was quite pleased with the effect. I then added some of the lighter blue over the background to give it a bit more interest. I finished the topper by adding a sentiment using Versafine Smokey Grey ink and then heat embossed using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
I finished the card by adding some embossing to the white 7" square base card. This is an 8" square Crafters Companion Textures - Basket Weave. I then added the topper. Done!
Thank you for looking at my blog today and I'll be back soon.
