This card is all about creating harmony between stamping, colouring and die cutting to produce a simple and beautiful project. I’ve chosen to finish this little piece with an uplifting thought, which I have to say is a sentiment from my heart.
You will need:
- Card blank 7 x 7”
- Black card stock cut 6.75 x 6.75”
- White card stock cut 6.5 x 6.5”
- Generation Inx Dark Grey (DG03)
- Versamark ink pad
- Black embossing powder
- Stamp set- 436609
- Die set - 436608
Prepare the following card stock: a 7 x 7” card blank; black card stock 6.75 X 6.75”; and a piece of white card stock 6.5 X 6.5”. You can actually use bigger or slightly smaller card blanks, but as a general rule the black and white card stock needs to be cut a quarter inch smaller each time.
Take the solid portion of the stamp set and ink this up with a grey ink pad. I use Generation Inx Dark Grey (DG03). Spritz this with water and stamp down on the white card stock creating a watercolour background. Allow this to dry naturally or give it a quick blast with a heat tool. If you do use a heat tool, allow it to warm up first before applying to the card stock; this just minimises the warp effect it can have on the card.
Ink up the outline part of your watercolour flower using a versamark ink pad. Stamp this in place and cover in black embossing powder. You will then need to heat set this using a heat tool.
Take the large ‘Together’ Die and put this through a cutting machine on black card stock. Secure Die cut on to card and stamp coordinating stamp set.
