Hi there, I am happy to have a floral card to share with you today and one of my favorite techniques. I will warn you though, this technique does not take long but you can never guarantee the same result twice!

I used a stamp positioner, the Penny Black floral cling stamp, ‘Becoming’ and the Penny Black transparent set ‘Just believe’ for the sentiment. I achieved my loose watercolor look by inking and stamping with distress stains. You can’t control exactly what the image will look like but you can get some beautiful blending.

I started by inking the flower and bud with worn lipstick stain. I stamped then cleaned the stamp so I would not contaminate the dauber of the dusty concord distress stain when I added that next. I kept the dusty concord mainly around the edges of the flower and tip of the bud but it blended into the flower a little which is what I was after.

I inked the leaves and stem with pumice stone and stamped. While that was still wet I added forest moss stain to parts of the leaves and stems to get the two-toned look. I dried the panel well then splattered some forest moss ink around the leaves and some dusty concord over the flower.

 

I added a sentiment in purple ink then popped up the whole panel on white foam before adding it to a natural white card base.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you get to enjoy some flowers blooming in your garden or your cards!
