I’m really enjoying using my Darkroom Door stamps at the moment, I guess I’m making up for the fact that I’d had them for so long before I cut them out and mounted them onto foam. This time, it’s my sister-in-law’s birthday.
Inks: Black StazOn Ink, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink
Cardstock: White and Black
Stamps: Darkroom Door Full Blossom Collection
Other: Double sided tape, dimensionals, Distress Markers, Sponging block, Aqua pen, Nestabilities Fancy Tags 2, Corner Punch
For this card, after I stamped the image, I sponged the card with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, again using a sponging block. This time, though, I sponged around the petals, so that I could colour them in.
I then coloured the flower and stem with Distress Markers – the centre with Mustard Seed, the stem with Shabby Shutters and the petals with Worn Lipstick and Barn Door. I then used an aqua pen on the petals, to blend the colours together. As there were patches of sponging on the background that were darker than others, I used the aqua pen on the background to even out the colour a bit more.
I cut a black tag using the Fancy Tags 2 die, stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock, and used the same die to trace around the sentiment to cut it out. I used a corner punch to round off the corners of the sentiment, as well as all the other corners.
Happy Birthday Janet, I hope you had a great day.
Bye for now,
