Glossy Floral Statements Hello Card with Tip
July 26, 2017
As promised...here's another Floral Statements card, but for when all you want to say is "hello".
Today's card uses Sponge Daubers for the coloring tool. With this card, I learned a new tip (at least new to me) for when coloring with a Sponge Dauber. I sometimes get a harsh "circle of color" when using a Sponge Dauber. Does that happen to you? Did you know...you can "blend it away" by wiping down those harsh areas with rubbing alcohol using a clean Sponge Dauber to blend & soften the color. Give it a try!
Glossy Floral Statements Hello
- Ink up "hello" image (Floral Statements stamp set) with Versamark ink, then without stamping, ink again in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp on 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Glossy White Cardstock. Cover with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, then melt with Heat Tool.
- Use Sponge Daubers with color flowers; Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz inks. With Sponge Daubers, it's best to ink them up, then dabbed off on a piece of scratch paper to avoid getting too much color and a harsh circle of color. If you do get a harsh circle of color, then blend away by wiping down with rubbing alcohol and clean Sponge Dauber to blend.
- Adhere completed panel to 4" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic Black cardstock. Then adhere to folded 5-1/2' x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White card base.
- Attach Basic Pearl Jewels.
Gorgeous, right?! Another simple but stunning card! In fact, I don't think you can go wrong with this set, no matter what color tools you use.
