Hi there! Robyn here today sharing a trio of cards using the Dear Daffodil Collage Stamp!
I decided to create a subtle, vintage feel for this trio of cards and water colouring with distress inks is the perfect technique to give a lovely soft colour to the flowers. The layering design may be a little different to usual but it is a great way to use up lots of small scraps. I’ve left the cards without a greeting as I often need a ‘blank’ card but you can easily personalise with Word Strips or any one of the Darkroom Door greeting images.
Stamp Darkroom Door Dear Daffodil Collage onto white cardstock using Archival Black ink. Using Distress markers or ink pads, apply a bit of ink to a non-stick craft mat and use an Aquash brush to colour the flowers. Aim for some parts of the petals to be darker colours for contrast. Gently tear around the image and carefully sponge the background and edges with Distress ink. Aim for a lighter colour in the centre of the images as the flowers are a little difficult to sponge around. I used a mix of Fossilized Amber, Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon, Dried Marigold, Mustard Seed for the petals and Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo as the individual background colours. Layer images with a solid piece of cardstock and then affix over cardstock scraps cut into strips, rectangles or circles.
