Hello my crafty friends! I am back for Newton’s Nook and I have kind of an unusual card, showcasing the Lovely Blooms stamp set and dies, along with Heartfelt Sentiment stamp set & Banner Trio die set.
I have donated a lot of my cards lately and need to replenish my stash and the one thing that I don’t have enough of is “Get Well Soon” cards. I thought I’d make one today. I recently watched a YT video by Rebecca Keppel and she showed some techniques on how to color with Distress oxide re-inkers. Thanks to Rebecca for the idea!
I started by stamping my images on some Neenah Desert Storm card stock with Versamark ink. I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I drop a few colors of my distress oxide re-inkers on my Tim Holtz Glass Mat and with my watercolor brush, I colored the images one by one. The re-inkers I used are Broken China, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac and Mowed Lawn. I built-up the colors by drying in between layers using my heating tool. Once I achieved the right intensity, I set them aside and started on my background panel.
The background was very simple to achieve. I stamped the images on some A2 size panel of Neenah Desert Storm card stock with Versamark ink. I put a few drops of white paint on my stamping block and used my watercolor brush to splatter on the background for added texture. Next, I foam-mounted the biggest image on the card and added the layers with liquid glue. I added them randomly all over the card and whatever excess that I cut, I adhered them back to the panel to fill in some empty spaces. I added the sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments that I heat-embossed with white embossing powder, and die-cut with the Banner Trio die. I finished my design by adding some Clear Mirrored Confetti Dots for more texture. Here’s another look:
