Fresh Buds Cards

Darkroom Door - Thursday, December 07, 2017

Hi there! It's Jane Clark here today with two cards using the new Fresh Buds Line Art Stamp

This first card uses a faux cloisonne technique. 

Stamp the Fresh Buds Line Art Stamp on four sheets of patterned paper using black ink. I used two sheets which had small floral prints in yellow tones and the other two sheets had green prints on them. I trimmed one green sheet for the card front, then I cut out all the images from the other three sheets and glued them over the corresponding images on the card front panel using a glue stick, set aside to dry. Coat the images with three-dimensional medium and put aside to dry,  add another layer on top and set aside again to dry. Once the piece is fully dry apply a light grey marker around the edges of the stamped images to make them stand out more. The buds stamens were coloured with a pink marker.
Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Fresh Buds Line Art Stamp
Darkroom Door Happy Birthday Stamp Set
Ink pad: Staz On jet black
Adhesives: Bostik blue glue stick (dries clear), three dimensional medium 
Paper pad 6 1/2 x 6 1/2in Kaisercraft Golden Grove
Card: white, black
Marker: Tombow light grey
This next card uses a resist effect: 
Stamp Fresh Buds all over a panel of white card using a watermark ink pad, rotate the image so it goes off the edges of the panel and faces in different directions as shown. Apply a very watery application of purple watercolour paint over the top, do this quickly and only once, it will resist the inked impressions and stand out as pictured. If you do apply too much paint it will still be okay but won't have white images, they will be a darker version of the paint you used. Let the piece dry completely. Apply watercolour paints directly to the sentiment and stamp it on a small panel of white card, this suits the Brushed Sentiments font particularly well. Dry it using a heat gun, stamp a small 'Happy' above it using violet ink. Stamp the Fresh Buds on more white card using violet ink, fussy-cut one of the small buds, add it to the left-hand side of the sentiment using mounting/foam tape. Stick a white die-cut bow and a glittered silver enamel dot on top as shown. Secure the sentiment panel to the card front along with a strip of silver glitter card at the top and bottom to add more sparkle!
