So yesterday, I shared a Purple Onion Designs card, which I have to say a huge thanks to everyone for their lovely comments, this has meant so much and makes creating so worthwhile...so today I thought as I was flicking through my folders on my computer, how about another POD card and this time using the same Damask stamp....I just love this stamp!!
Taking trimmed white card stock and the Vintage Damask stamp, I blended over the entire sheet of card stock using distress ink, Dusty Concord, applying a fairly heavy layer, I then took the stamp and applied the ink and stamped over the covered sheet of card stock, creating a look of tone on tone, I sewed around the edge of the card stock to give it a finished look and adhered to a trimmed white card. Next, trimming Kraft card stock and sewing around the edge, stamping the larger flower from the stamp set Pot a Flower, colouring the stems and leaves of the flower with my Copics. Using the same flower, this time just inking the flower head, stamping directly onto white card stock 2 times and taking distress ink Dusty Concord to colour the centre of the flower and Milled Lavender for the petals, this time applying the colour by using the ink directly onto the card stock...this gives such a beautiful smooth finish and quick colouring. I trimmed the petals and the centre of the flower out and adhered together using foam dimensionals, then adhered to the stamped flower on the Kraft card stock, also using foam dimensionals. Finally, adhering this to the card front along with trimming a strip of white card stock and stamping a birthday sentiment to complete the card.
Here is a close up of the card
Okay time to wrap things up here and get moving on today's chores so that I can attempt to create...
I hope you all have a fabulous day!
Sending you all lots of hugs!
