I love how this card turned out and it was so easy! When you start with an awesome stamp, your card will usually look fantastic no matter what you do. I used a stamp called Poppy Pattern from Penny Black.
This is what the stamp looks like after you sponge the Oxide Inks on it.
I was curious what this technique would look like on colored cardstock. I like the white better. Do you?
I used a sponge dauber and sponged a few different colors of Oxide Inks onto the stamp. Then I spritzed the stamp with water and stamped the cardstock. If you want it darker, add more ink to the stamp in the places you want darker and stamp again. You can do this if you are using the MISTI stamping tool, like I was. You can leave it as is or you can take a paint brush and move the colors around or add more color. I cut this panel out with a large, rectangle stitched die from Lawn Fawn.
Next I used Diamond Stickles in the centers of the flowers for some sparkle. I used quite a bit to get dimension and then let it dry.
I used a Thank You die from Concord & 9th that I actually got free with an order I placed recently. This die is a really good size. I decided to use a green glitter paper with the die and I cut four black ones to add some dimension and to act as a shadow to make it stand out a little better.
On the inside I used a sentiment from the Hero Arts Thanks Stamp and Cut Stamp Set. I used a flower die to try to coordinate with the front of the card. I actually got that die free in a magazine that I picked up at Michaels about a month ago.
I hope you'll try this technique. It's so easy and a lot of fun to experiment with different inks.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
