Your Precious Soul

For today's card, I decided to pull out this older stamp from Penny Black called Together.
I haven't used it for so long.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by looking through my stash of inked backgrounds.  This one was done using the Geometric stencil from ACLD.  I had used it to stencil another card with Distress Oxide inks.  When I went to clean off the stencil, I saw how much ink remained on it, so I pulled out a white card base and cleaned off the stencil onto that using a baby wipe.  It transferred the colour right onto the cardstock giving a more subtle, soft look to the inking.
  • I took the stenciled panel and placed it into my Misti and positioned the flowers along the side edge.  
  • I coloured directly onto the stamp using my Tombow markers in pink first, sprayed with water and pressed onto the panel.  I repeated that process using some red next just in a few places and not all over coloured.
  • I used some green for the stems as well.
  • When I was happy with the inking, I moved the stamp down to ink the last flower at the bottom.
  • I used my white and black Posca pen to splatter just over the flowers, then set aside to dry.
  • When it was all dry, I placed it back into my Misti to stamp the sentiment.
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of orange cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Here is the stencil I used:

I love the bright and pretty flowers Karen, and the bonus stencil print you got using the residue ink left on it and it transferred brilliantly. The words you used are great too...altogether a beautiful card. x
