As we watch the summer fade away, I wanted to have some fun playing with my Tim Holtz wildflower stamps today and this is what I came up with.
I began with a piece of heavy weight cardstock and masked the edges using painter's tape. I inked up my acrylic block with Shabby Shutters Distress ink, sprayed with water and pressed it onto my paper. That gave my my framework to stamp into.
Next, using my MISTI, I coloured the stamps with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped. I tried to give the flowers some light and dark colour values for interest and to add more depth. I stamped the sentiment from Impression Obsession with black Memento ink and sponged the edges with more Distress ink to help define the stamped area.
I thought it needed a bit more interest, so I randomly inked up my script stamp from Penny Black with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white powder over the flowers.
Adding my card to these challenges:
