Hi there! Today we have 5 beautiful cards to share using the new Inky Irises Collage Stamp!
Godelieve Tijskens has created 3 cards with different techniques, showing how the stamp can be used in a variety of ways:
1. Create a background on a crafsheet, using Distress Inks Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade and water onto smooth watercolor paper.
2. Use gesso to stamp some white dots in the lower corner, with the Dots Texture stamp.
3. Stamp the Inked Irises using Archival Ink Jet Black.
4. Start colouring the flowers with pencils on top of the Distress Ink Background.
5. Compose the card and add a sentiment from the Happy Birthday stamp set.
1. Stamp the Inked Irises with Versamark ink on a piece of vellum.
2. Heat emboss with white embossing powder. Cut out.
3. Apply glue to the top edge of the image and adhere to a colorful background. I used a monoprint from my stash, that was made with Acrylic paints by Dina Wakley and a stencil on a gelatine plate but you can also use patterned paper.
4. Assemble the card, finished off with some ribbon
1. On cold pressed watercolor paper, stamp the image using a light shade of Distress Ink, such as Antique Linen.
2. Use an acrylic block as a palette for watercolouring by pressing an inkpad onto the acrylic block. Then pick up the ink with a wet brush to color the image. Repeat with different colours of ink until you have finished.
3. The stamping underneath the image will turn almost invisible, so all you see is the watercoloured image.
4. Add splatters using the same inks.
5. Fold the card.

Connie Mercer has created two stunning cards in earthy tones, I love Connie's use of colour to give the Irises a vintage feel!
1. Stamp two impressions of Inky Irises. Fussy cut the large Iris, shade with Archival Ink Butter Cup and Fern Green. Set aside. Shade the second impression with Archival Butter Cup Ink (the flower part).
2. Use the Chicken Wire Background to stamp over the second impression. It will give the effect that two flowers are behind the wire and one is in front of the wire.
3. Square up and mat on yellow cardstock then white cardstock. Adhere to card front.
4. Add punched corners. Stamp sentiment from the Wings Stamp Set and fussy cut. Adhere fussy cut Iris, sentiment and black rhinestones (top of iris). For a little shimmer go over Iris with Wink of Stella/clear.
1. Stamp the Fallen Leaves Background Stamp on white cardstock using three different inks. I used Archival Ink by Ranger.
2. Stamp around the edge with the Stitched Border Rubber Stamp set. Adhere to card.
3. Stamp Inky Irises Collage Stamp on white cardstock. Shade with Distress ink, using several different colors.
4. Stamp over the mail date stamp with Black Archival ink using the mail date stamp from the Correspondence set.
5. Square up and mount on card front. Stamps leaves using the three inks you chose for the background stamp and fussy cut.
6. Stamp sentiment from the Whimsical Words Rubber Stamp set and fussy cut. Punch two corners and attach to card front. Add leaves and sentiment.
7. For a little sparkle go over the leaves, sentiment and irises with Wink of Stella: clear.
