Hello everyone this Rahmat from cardsandcookingcorner.blogspot.com. I am super delighted to be a guest designer here today.
I started stamping and blogging about 3 years ago. I love trying out different techniques in card making. I love incorporating sewing on my cards as and when, as it is my first love in crafting.
Other than card making, I love reading, traveling, photography and cooking. You can follow me on instagram @rahmat.ccc for a glimpse of work.
I am a teacher by profession, but currently not teaching.
I am wife to a hotelier, and mother to 2 teens.
Today I am showcasing the Magnolias stamp set. I simply love this set, the outlined flowers are gorgeous. I am showing water colored flowers in front with outlined stamping in the background.
I started with stamping the magnolias on a water color paper using worn lipstick distress ink.
I first spread the distress ink using the water brush, it gives a very light shade to the whole image.
Then I chose same red and pink zig clean color markers, and Staedtler marsgraphic marker( it is a water base marker, the ink spreads well with a water brush) to add color to the flowers. For the leaves I chose a green zig marker.
I have added many layers of colors till I was satisfied by the look of the magnolias.
I used a blue zig marker to add some highlight around the flowers.
I stamped the flowers in a random fashion using Lawn fawn Hippo ink, it is grey color on the base card.
Used the pink ribbon from the vintage floral collection from Inspired by Stamping.
I stamped the sentiment in Archival black ink using ‘birthday greetings’ set on a small strip, ad added it to the base.
I die cut the magnolias panel using a stitched rectangle die from MFT, and used foam adhesive to add to the base.
My finished card.
Here are a few other cards using this same technique…
