Flower Clusters

Good Morning.

Meet today's card.  
I'm playing with a new to me stamp from Magenta called Large Floral Bkg.  As soon as I saw it months ago, I knew I had to pick it up.  I love the free flowing look the flowers in clusters has.  
I wanted to try using it with my Ranger Alcohol Lifting ink and a piece of previously inked Yupo I had done and so today was the day.

So like I said, I began with a piece of Yupo that I had inked with Ranger Alcohol inks.  I placed the that piece inside my Misti, inked the stamp with the Lifting ink then stamped it onto the AI Yupo inked sheet.  It lifted the colour so I was able to swap out the Yupo for a piece of plain white cardstock and transferred the ink onto it. 
I cleaned the stamp then repeated that process to get a nice dark image.  The beauty of using the Misti for this process is that you can be sure the image will be in the right position for re-stamping every time.

I let the piece dry for a minute, then placed it back inside my Misti and stamped this lovely sentiment from Serendipity Stamps.
I added the finished piece over some pink cardstock then glued it all onto a plain white card base.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I can see why you like this stamp - it's very natural looking, as if the flowers just fell off and weren't deliberately positioned. Beautiful way to use it. I love image backdrops and this is perfect.

Beautifully done Karen using the ink lifting technique on the alcohol inked piece has worked so well, and the background stamped on to white cardstock using that image looks great, and love the sentiment too. So bright and pretty. x
