These first two cards were made a couple of months ago but I never got around to posting them. I really enjoy making these little flowers and wish I had a larger variety of colors, but the cotton yarn I use for them isn’t available in too many colors, at least not locally.
Hero Arts stamp, BoBunny paper, May Arts ribbon.
Hero Arts stamps, the grass was made by just cutting into the paper with scissors.
The stamp is a new Hero Arts Cling. I inked it up with Ranger Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint on the left, Broken China and Shabby Shutters on the right) and stamped it on to watercolor paper. I used my waterbrush to move the ink around to the spots that didn’t stamp, because the watercolor paper is so bumpy it’s hard to get an even impression. That’s one of the good things about the Distress Inks, being able to move the color around after you stamp. It works really well on watercolor paper, but I haven’t had much success doing it on regular cardstock.
The verse stamp on the card on the right is one from the dollar bin at Michael’s, colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I have some Fall cards ready to post and will get them up in the next day or so. I hope everyone is having an enjoyable Labor Day weekend!
