Good Morning Ladies,
I hope today finds you well, have any of you managed to do any crafting this week?
I spent a few hours in there yesterday, this is the card that I was struggling with the day before, I found away round the issue I was having, I stamped the flowers and cut them out, and then stamped a script stamp over a card base and placed the flowers on top, arranged them and stuck them down, I then die cut two circles and set them to one side. I took two blue Ecoline pens and and coloured the peonies, after I finished colouring I replaced the die cut circles popping them on foam pads to raise them up, I added shading around the circles. Nezt came the messy bit, Tracy suggested using your Ecoline pen to add splatters over the card front, so thats what I did, I noticed later that I had blue ink on the sole of my foot !!! Thank heavens it didn't transfer to the carpets. (We have tiles in craft room thankfully), the splats seem to go anywhere but on the page for me!! To finish the card I fussy cut some birds and the friendship sentiment, adding shading around them. A few sequins and a Index clip. Its not perfect but I was determined to fix it. So my top tip in this case, instead of wasting countless pieces of paper trying to ink up part of a stamp and ending up transferring mucky ink marks , just stamp the whole thing and fussy cut the piece that you want and adhere that to your card, much less stressful and less wastedul. The hard part in this case was trying to mask out the text between the petals, without wiping ink off of the line art of the stamp.
I think I will be trying a much less involved card today. 😅
I Hope that you enjoy whatever you have planned today,
Love and hugs to all of you,
