Now for the tutortial.
|Stamps: Innovative Stamp Creations “Marvels of Nature”|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Basic Black & Pink Passion|
|Ink: Stampin’ Up Regal Rose, Summer Sun, Basic Black & Orchid Opulence|
|Accessories: Brayer, Post it Notes, Ribbon, Brads, Tim Holtz Medallion|
Brayered Summer Sun ink at the bottom a 3″ x 8″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Brayered Regal Rose ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered a bit of Orchid Opulence ink at the very top of the card stock, not covering the Real Rose ink entirely.
Masked the bottom 1/3 of the card stock with post it notes.
Sponged Regal Rose ink at the post it note edge and create a couple small hills.
Note: This shows what happens when you put pink on top of yellow. That’s right, you get Orange.
Sponged some Orchid Opulence right at the post it note edge.
Removed the post it note masks.
Sponged Regal Rose ink from the outside edge toward the middle, using a streaking motion with the sponge. I did not sponge any Regal Rose ink in the middle of the card stock.
Stamped three Palm trees using Basic Black ink.
Sponged heavily Basic Black ink at the very bottom of the card stock.
Added a hot pink ribbon, brads and a Tim Holtz Medallion that says “Journey” on it.
Here is the finished card measuring 4″ x 9″.
