Tall Flowers Cards

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Hi there, it's Heather Telford from snowy Canada looking forward to the day when flowers are seen around here once more. We have loads of snow so I enjoyed the contrast of stamping spring flowers. These new flowers stamps are great to work with especially as they have nice long bendable stems; you can make one stamp bend this way or that to fill your stamped vase or garden!



Instructions: 
1. In a stamp positioner, place tall daisy stamp from 'Tall Flowers' set on cold pressed watercolour paper panel
2. Ink stem with peeled paint distress ink and flower head with fossilized amber ink then stamp
3. Using markers ink petals of the stamp with spiced marmalade marker, spritz stamp and stamp over initial print
4. Ink petal partially with rusty hinge distress marker close to flower centre, ink centre with ground espresso marker. Spritz with water and stamp.
5. Blend stem, petals and flower centre with fine tip paintbrush and water.
6. When dry restamp flower centre in ground espresso ink.
7. Repeat two more times to add flowers to panel using a stamped and hand cut mask to overlap flowers.
8. Using the mask again to protect stamping add background foliage using a stamp from 'Nature Walk' set inked with weathered wood and tea dye distress ink.
9. Splatter with tea dye ink.
10. Stamp sentiment in brown Stazon ink on vellum strip then wrap around panel before attaching to kraft card base.


Supplies used: 
Darkroom Door Tall Flowers Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Nature Walk Stamp Set
Distress inks: Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood, Tea Dye
Distress markers: Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Ground Espresso, Forest Moss
Cold pressed watercolour paper
Brown stazon ink
Vellum
Kraft cardstock


Instructions: 
1. Ink delicate flower stamp from 'Nature Walk' set with stormy sky and iced spruce distress inks, spritz stamp with water then stamp several times across cold pressed watercolour paper panel before re-inking and repeating.
2. Use stamp positioner to stamp tall daisy stamp from 'Tall Flowers' set over background foliage. Ink petals first with wilted violet distress ink and stem with forest moss distress ink, spritz stamp then stamp. 
3. Clean stamp and partially re-ink with blueprint sketch distress ink, spritz with water then stamp again. Because the ink is diluted with water the two colours will blend and fill the outline petals. If desired blend more with a paintbrush.
4. Repeat to add more daisies across panel bending the stem to change the orientation of the flower heads.
5. Stamp sentiment in black Stazon ink on vellum strip then wrap around panel before attaching to card base.


Supplies used:

Instructions: 
1. Trace a circle in pencil on hot pressed watercolour panel.
2. Sponge fossilized amber distress ink around circle then erase pencil line.
3. Using sponging as a guide, stamp small flower heads from 'Tall Flowers' set round the circle in carved pumpkin ink, holding stamp so only flower(not stem) is inked and stamped.
4. Repeat process with small leaves and ferns from 'Leaves' set in fossilized amber, peeled paint, forest moss and tea dye distress inks.
5. Splatter forest moss ink over wreath.
6. Mat panel in orange cardstock, attach to kraft card base and add a raffia bow.
