For this instalment of the INKspired blog hop, we all using the same stamp set to create our cards. The stamp set is called Timeless Tulips, we all received this stamp set at a Stampin’ Up! event last November. I will be honest and say it is not a stamp set that I would have brought myself and I am happy that I used it for this challenge, it made me get a little creative and I am excited to see our the team all use the set.
I stamped the bud in Rich Razzleberry ink onto Watercolor Paper, the stem and leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow. Once the image are stamped I used a paintbrush to apply more ink to create a bold watercolour look, you can still see some of the details of the stamp.
The background is Watercolour paper that I painted with Rich Razzleberry ink and once it was dry embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. This embossing folder is coming in the new Annual Catalogue out June 3rd and SO GOOD.
On the main panel, I added a little paint splatter and stitching around the edge
A got creative with the Linen Thread by turning it black with Jet Black Stāzon Ink Refill, I did a batch of it as I am always looking of black thread. All I did was loop a few meters of the Linen Thread on a small pot and poured in a good amount of Jet Black Stāzon Ink Refill, once the Linen Thread was covered I took it out to dry and the next day set it with the heat tool.
One last thing, I used the printed paper from Botanical Prints Product Medley which I did not realise is now sold out but I am still sharing my trick with you for other papers that are black and white. I wanted to repeat the Mossy Meadow from the stamping so I coloured the paper using a Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend and within seconds it was perfect. I adore Blends.
