I got the inspiration from a gorgeous card on Instagram. It had some gorgeous colors that I wouldn't immediately have put together myself so I got out my distress inks and went to town.
I started by smooshing ink onto a laminated sheet I have. I used; Cracked pistachio, Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean and a bit of Chipped Saphire. I sprayed them with water and pressed my watercolor paper into it. I dried it with a heat tool and then pressed it in again where I wanted more color. I did it several times.
Then it was time for some stenciling. I used two different Tim Holtz stencils with some Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink. I used a makeup applicator to dab on the ink.
Then I chose a couple of stamps that I wanted to use; sheet music and a text stamp and stamped that Distress Ink Chipped Saphire. I also used a texture stamp (little dots) with Versacolor silver pigment ink.
Then it was time to stamp the flowers using Distress Ink Dusty Concord. I used two different flowers from a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp set with flowers.
I finished the cards off with sentiments from Gummiapan heat embossed in white.
The cards are then mounted on a dark grey cardbase.
Loved how they turned out!
