Today I have another fun card idea using clear stamps from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. The new set Mason Jar Bouquet is definetely a beauty and I wanted to stretch the stamps in the set to get different looks. So today I only stamped part of the mason jar image to make to bouquet hang from 3 corners of my card front.
I stamped part of the bouquet on two corners of the card front in black using Umbrella Crafts premium dye ink. To make sure the ink wouldn’t smear I heat set it well. (This works all the time for me.) I used a very pigmented set of watercolors in Rose, Purple Pale and Ultramarine Blue to create a wash across the card front. I kept layering color until I was happy with the result. I added some splatters and iridescent rhinestones to finish off the background and attached a stamped banner with a piece of Therm O Web foam strip to give it dimension.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. This card is really simple to make and the result is striking! I’m planning to get more of these creamy watercolors to make more fun backgrounds and practice my watercoloring on cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
