Hey crafty friends, today I am super excited to be introducing Sathya as our guest designer for June. She has created such a lovely card featuring two of our floral stamp sets! Please leave a comment below welcoming her. 🙂
SathyaKala, here from Paperie Expressions .
Thrilled to be here as Guest Designer for the month of June, on Inspired by Stamping.
I have been into crafting/blogging for the past 5.5 years, dabbling in Quilling, card making, mixed media and altered art projects. I find when each interest crosses over other, it does add different spin to it. Am thoroughly enjoying my recent interests, Watercoloring and Brush Lettering.
Thank you Joanna, for this awesome opportunity to showcase my talent in your blog using your Gorgeous Stamps. Absolutely enjoyed using those beautiful stampsets.
Am here today to share two cards using Gorgeous floral stamp sets from IBS store.
Its a simple CAS card, which uses the focal element as cherry blossom cluster, from the Stampset Cherry Blossoms.
•Took Neenah solar white cardstock in the size 4×5.25″.
•Stamped the cherry blossom using Alcohol marker friendly ink – Memento Tuxedo Black ink here.
•Colored the image with Chameleon markers carefully inside the periphery of the images.
•Then the whole image, is highlighted using blue shade of chameleon marker over the outer periphery of whole image so as to pop the image.
•Finally Fabercastell Polychromos colored pencils are used to bring out shades and shadows to the images.
•Sentiment is stamped from the same stampset using Memento tuxedo black ink.
•Few clear dew droplets were added as accents.
•Then the focal panel is added to the standard A2 sized black card base.
For this card, i made use of Gorgeous Magnolia Stampset, giving it a bit of Mixed media touch.
•Took 12x12cm top fold kraft cardbase.
•Then took a white focal panel which is bit lesser in size, is distressed around the edges.
•Bit of stenciling done using TCW- Tile using Prima Light base tinted with Hickery Smoke Distress ink.
•Colored ornated chipboard using Black soot distress ink
•Used No line coloring technique for the Magnolia images using Fabercastell polychromes pencils.
•Fussy cut it and kept aside.
•Added the ornated chipboard onto the focal panel with fussy cut image on top and white doily as base.
•Spanish moss, Prima artstone, tinted cheese cloth (Peeled paint distress ink) added along with the colored image, which is popped using Scotch foam adhesive.
•Sentiment is stamped on vellum using Archival ink and added to the focal panel.
•The focal panel is then mounted onto the kraft cardbase using foam adhesives.
•Few enamel dots are added to finish off the card.
Hope you all enjoyed today’s projects. I can’t wait for you to see my second post.
Thanks much for stopping by!
