Good Morning Friends! Today’s project has a few techniques for ya! Some masking and some blending. Let’s get started shall we?
To begin with, I used this sketch to start my card.
I haven’t used the Everything Eleanor stamp set in awhile so I broke it out. This is such a beautiful stamp set, I have used it over and over again. Which is funny- because I’m not a big “flower card” person. So first, I stamped the flower on a plain piece of copy paper and then I cut it out.
Then, I stamped on the left side of the paper where one of the circles in the sketch are. Now, for the fun part! I put that cut out flower OVER the flower I just stamped.
Then I stamped above it and below it, but overlapped the paper. Isn’t this cool?
Once I had stamped the flower 4 times, I colored it in. Our markers from Stampin’ Up! are fabulous!! I especially recommend them if you are into those new coloring books. They last forever and the color is so vibrant.
As a bonus, they are water based so they won’t stain your hands or your clothes if you get any ink on you. I like to color with my 9 year old and I have no problem letting him use these markers for that simple fact!
I used the Soft Sky marker first to color the petals, then went over it with the Marina Mist Marker. Once that was done, I used my trusty blender pen to try and blend the two colors for a more dimensional look.
Finally, I stamped another flower on a separate piece of cardstock and colored it in using the blender pen and the Crushed Curry ink pad. If you haven’t done this before, just squeeze the lid of the ink pad while it’s closed. Then you can pick up the ink off the cover with your blender pen.
I cut that flower up and popped it up using a dimensional once the pendant piece was complete.
This is the inside of the card.

Remember… Think it! Ink It!
