I pulled out STAMPlorations's Bloom Sketches set and began to play around with the daisy and some Distress Ink handpainting.
- Step 1: Emboss your image. I used a sparkly clear embossing powder.
- Step 2: Swipe Distress Inks on a craft mat and spritz with water. I started with Worn Lipstick and layered with Victorian Velvet. I did the centers with Mustard Seed.
- Step 3: Paint your image and layer with different colors.
All in all, the vellum added a delightful softness and the bright bursts peeking through the cutouts was a great counterpoint. I added some sheer ribbon to keep the card's delicate feel and finished it with a cheerful saying from the same STAMPlorations set.
Since I was able to try a new technique, I'm going to enter this into Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog - Rock the Technique. I also incorporated vellum into my challenge, which makes a great card for The Friday Mashup challenge!
