Hi Crafty Friends! My name is Farhana and I blog over at Everyday Engineered, and share a lot more on my Instagram, @everydayengineered! I’m here today to share a fun floral card (my favourite type of card to make!) along with a new (to me!) technique, ink blending on kraft paper.
To create this card I started by stamping the floral arrangement and the water can image from the Farm Fresh Flowers Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps using my MISTI stamp positioner and Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I left the stamp in the MISTI as I plan to double stamp.
I colored them using copic markers in the following combinations :
Leaves : G21, G24; YG03, YG63; YG03, YG13, YG23
Stems : E55, E59
Flowers : V12, V15, V17; R37, R39; RV63, RV66; R05, YR04; Y35, YR07
Water can : N0, N2, N4, N6; BV00, BV02
After coloring I placed the floral arrangement back into the MISTI and stamped the image using Versamark Watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I die cut the colored images using the coordinating dies.
Next I created the background for the card using the new Art Deco Patterns stencil. I used the one with the larger masked area, along with distress oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold.
I added the colored floral arrangement with foam tape on top of the water can image. For the sentiment I used the “thankful” stamp from the Bitty Buzzwords : Fall stamp set along with the “For your Friendship”. I heat embossed both on to kraft cardstock using Versamark Watermark ink and gold embossing powder. I die cut the word “thankful” using the coordinating dies and trimmed down the “for your frienship” into a strip. I added the thankful die cut using foam tape and adhered the sentiment strip with some liquid adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed this card that I created and it inspires you to create something fun for fall!
