On a 3″ x 8″ piece of Whisper White card stock, stamped the flower image three times by loading my stamp first with Versamark and then with Kiwi Kiss ink before stamping each image.
Heat embossed the images using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Brayered Baja Breeze ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Not Quite Navy ink at the top of the card stock, not covering the Baja Breeze ink entirely.
Brayered Really Rust ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Brayered Ruby Red ink at the bottom of the card stock, not covering the Really Rust ink entirely.
Added a dark Green marker shadow to the right sides of the plants.
Added some White gel pen lines at the bottom of the card stock.
Colored in the flower heads with the White Gel Pen.
Use the negative piece of card stock that I cut a 3″ circle out of with a Circle Cutter for a Mask to create my Moon. Sponged White Craft ink (Pigment ink) in the open area of the mask.
Removed the mask and sponged Close to Cocoa at the base of each plant and at the very bottom of the card stock.
Sponged Not Quite Navy ink at the top sides and top edge of the card stock.
Assembled a few simple layers and here is the finished card measuring 4″ x 9″.
May your day be filled with great summer images as well.
