Today's card celebrates 'Earth Day' which is coming up on Saturday and the wonderful colours associated with it.
I am also trying to work with different colour combos to see what I can come up with.
The stamps I am using today are new releases from Penny Black and the flowers are just another example of the wonderful Brushstroke series of stamps that are so easy to work with and give great results.
I began by masking the edges of my card with painter's tape. Don't forget to remove some of the tack of the tape so it won't tear your paper when you remove it.
I placed my heavy weight cardstock into my Misti then inked the PB Magnolia Rhapsody flower by colouring it with Tombow markers. I sprayed with waterm then pressed onto my paper.
I repeated that process using darker shades of the earth tone colours then used a wet paintbrush to blend the colours together.
I inked the sentiment from the Happy Wishes sentiment set with black Memento ink and clear heat embossed it. I sponged the edges using Rusty Hinge Distress ink then removed the masking tape.
Finally to add extra interest, I splattered the background using some more diluted Distress ink.
