Hello and happy Wednesday! After a bit of a hiatus, I am thrilled to be back with the Paper Craft Crew! Oh how I missed them and their wonderful projects!
This week is a sketch challenge and I was able to pull out the new Breathtaking Bouquet Stamp Set for this one. This stamp set is in the new Mini Catalogue. I've paired it with the free Sale-A-Bration item, which is the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set. There is more on Sale-A-Bration below.
Here is this weeks sketch:
Great layout, right?! I hope this one inspires you to submit a card to this weeks Paper Craft Crew Challenge!
I really love the simple layout because it allows the Breathtaking Bouquet water-coloured background to stand out, especially with the added black sentiment.
Here are some tips and tricks:
I used a piece of thick Whisper White Cardstock for the Breathtaking Bouquet stamped image. I would normally use Watercolour Paper but I realized I am completely out!
The thick Whisper White Cardstock measures xxx.
Using the Stamparatus, I stamped with Versamark Ink and then did some heat embossing with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.
Once the embossing was set, I added a generous amoutnt of water overtop of the paper using my Aqua Painter, and then useed the Aqua Painter to pick up ink colour and randomly washed over the image.
I used Shaded Spruce, Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape, and Pacific Point ink colours.
I let it air dry for a couple of minutes and then used my heat tool on low to dry the rest. Once dry I cut the water colour image in two, leaving me with two watercolour panels measuring xxx.
The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set which is a Sale-A-Bration item (and free when you spend $60 or more in my online shop!).
With the two watercolour panels, I was able to create two cards! The one above and then an extra. I just love how they both turned out!
I just love how vibrant the water colour is! Don't you agree?
I would highly recommend the Breathtaking Bouquet Stamp Set. The possibilities are endless with this one.
