Hi Creative Friends,
Today we are sharing a project made using the wispy and beautiful Treasured stamp by Penny Black. These elegant dropping flowers are a sweet way to send your greetings.
This project started with a 4.5×6″ hot-pressed watercolor panel mounted in a stamp positioner. Before stamping, we secured the paper in our positioner by applying low-tack tape 1/4″ around the perimeter. We like to use Spellbinder’s Best Ever Craft Tape (see supply list below). It doesn’t seem to tear the paper when removed and it keeps the paper flat while painting and creates a white border all at the same time.
With the tape in place and using a blending brush, we blended on Spun Sugar distress ink, then Shaded Lilac and Lost Shadow near the bottom and along one side.
When the background was complete, the tape was peeled off, and the stamp was mounted in place. The flowers were stamped first with Fresh Snow. The Fresh Snow ink needs to be stamped several times. Then, we went over it with Lilac Grace and Plum Pudding ink used for shading. The stems and leaves were inked with green Tombow pens.
Once all the stamping was done, the panel was splattered with first Plum Pudding ink, then Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleedproof white ink. When the splatters were dry, the sentiment was stamped using Lilac Grace ink.
The panel was mounted onto a white card stock card base to complete the card. We hope you enjoyed it!
