2 JS 8” x 8” White pre-scored cards and one matching envelope.
Spellbinders Marvellous Squares Die set.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers– I used Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass.
Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad.
Detail Gold Embossing Powder.
Offcut of Gold Mirri Card.
Sticky stuff – I used foam pads and double sided tape.
Using the second largest die, and ½ of one of the 8” x 8” cards die-cut four shapes. The remaining ½ of the card will fold in half and make a slim card.
Using the Hydrangea stamp colour up the stamp using the Distress Markers. Stamp each of the four die-cuts with the Hydrangea. You will need to re-colour the stamp between each stamping.
I used Dusty Concord for the centre of the flower; Tumbled Glass for the rest of the flower, and Peeled Paint for the foliage. Colouring the centre of the flower head with a darker colour and a lighter colour toward the edge of the head, will give the illusion of the curved shape of the flower head.
Image A shows the stamped image without the petals being overpainted.
Optional, (Image B) using a slightly damp fine paintbrush, lightly drag the paint out from the flower petals. Paint each petal separately.
Using a Versamark stamp pad, stamp the sentiment onto a small piece of card. Cover the stamped image with Detail Gold embossing powder and emboss using a heat gun.
Mount the sentiment onto gold mirri card.
