I experimented last night … and have an all-over-the-floor paper bin to show for it … and this card …
I’ve used Sam’s sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch (where I haven’t played for such a long time), I’m joining in with the floral theme at The Card Concept (Clean and Simple style), and for the first time, linking up with Taheera’s Cure For The Monday Blues.
This resist technique is a new one for me, hence the experimenting. The Stampendous ranunculus were stamped on a watercolour card panel with Versamark ink, clear embossed and then coloured (inspired by Therese‘s Muse card here). I used a couple of pinks and tried different amounts of water with them, to see if I could create some depth and shading on the blooms, and a kind of halo effect around them to go with the sketchy look. Once the card was dry, I went over it all with a wash of Memento Galaxy Gold and added a little gold embossing to the flower centres. The sentiment’s from Clearly Besotted, again stamped in Versamark and then embossed in gold. I swiped the edges of a card base with Versamark and gold embossed them before adhering the flower panel flat to it. It was going to be popped up, but the bit of warping did away with that idea … it’s going to live under a heavy book till I send it out!
The door will soon be closing at CTS, so I’m off to link. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
