Hi Everyone, Cornelia is back playing with some of the older STAMPlorations sets today!
I used one of my favorite techniques - sponging and one of my favorite gadgets to make those cards - the Stamp-a-majig.
So, lets get started - I masked white card stock with post it notes - I like to do this an a grid pad, to get my lines straight. I used a Kaleidocolor inkpad for this card - in my opinion you can use any kind of ink for sponging - I have used them all with similar results. I basically just pick the colors I like.....
As you can see - I went with yellow and green.
I stamped the little number stamp on the clear plastic sheet that comes with the Stamp-a-majig, using Versafine ink (my favorite)
This way your stamping stays very exact:
Next I stamped the daisy and heat embossed it with superfine WOW embossing powder - I like the detail of that powder.
I then colored the daisy - also in yellow and green, but used my Brushos for that - sprinkling a few crystals on a clear acrylic block and using a water brush.
Added the sentiment and a few stitched lines and cut out the daisy.
I mounted the daisy with foam tape and added some Stickles to the center.
Here is a similar card I made, except that I stamped the heart strip on colored card stock and added some Washi tape:
