Succulents Stamp Set Cards

Darkroom Door - Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Hello! It's Belinda Spencer here again today sharing a series of cards using the Succulents Stamp Set



Instructions:

1. Cut a piece of aqua cardstock 12.5cm x 19cm. Fold in half to form the card base.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock 9cm x 12cm. Apply the Woodgrain Texture Stap in the centre using Watering Can Archival Ink. Wash some grey watercolour paint over the top of the stamped area. Dry with a heat gun. Ink the edges with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. Stick down on the card base.

3. Apply Lucky Clover Distress Ink to the Succulents stamp and spritz with a fine mist of water. Just a little. Stamp on a separate piece of smooth white cardstock. Use a fine soft wet paintbrush to smooth and blend the ink. Dry with a heat gun and then fussy cut.

4. Apply Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to the Fine Leaves stamp. Huff on it before stamping on white cardstock. Dry the ink and then fussy cut the leaves.

5. Add some messy strands of co-ordinating embroidery thread to the card front. Layer on the fussy cut leaves followed by the succulent. Use 3D foam under the succulent to give it some dimension. Flick some Lucky Clover ink over the card front as well as some white droplets from a paint pen.

6. Stamp a sentiment and add to the card using 3D foam. Glue
on some sequins to finish.
