PE: Honorable Mention at Just Add Ink!!
Hello! My Papa’s birthday is just a couple of days from now. Now, we have a habit of giving cards on birthdays in our family (giving cards is a little rare in India). We used to always buy our cards, until we started making our own (my sis makes some awesome digital cards using gimp and my Papa makes them with word art, adding a special touch of his own, and Ma and Papa give it together (of course!!))
And this time, for Papa’s birthday, when my Ma asked me to make a card for him, so she could give it to him – I was super surprised!! Its the first time she has asked me to make one, so you can see my delight!😀 So, I set to work immediately, and came up with this card –
I used WPlus9 Watercolored Anemones with distress inks for this card. I misted the stamp after inking it before stamping it on paper. Here’s the distress inks combination I used –
Antique Linen (base stamp) + Dried Marigold + Picked Raspberry
Antique Linen (base stamp) + Milled Lavender + Picked Raspberry
I also used Crushed Olive for the stems and leaves.
Once it was dry, I lightly blended some of the Crushed Olive just where the leaves are.
Finally came the sentiment – from Reverse Confetti Whole Lotta Happy, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then added a few splatters using Camel drawing inks…and done!🙂
No, wait..there’s still the envelope!😉 I used the same stamp set, and this time, I used white pigment ink to stamp the base, and then Dried Marigold, Milled Lavender and Crushed Olive to stamp on top.
