Hi stampers! It is Anna-Karin here today with a card using the new Dear Daffodils Collage Stamp. This is such a pretty stamp and can work for so many different occasions.
I made a card in warm brown tones, with lots of texture. Normally, I would do spring type of cards with Daffodil images and this was a fun change. The flowers were watercoloured with Brusho crystals. I took a few step photos to show how it was created.
Stamp the Dear Daffodils stamp on hot press (smooth) watercolour paper, with a waterproof ink. This is a detailed stamp, and it is easier to get a good impression on smooth than on textured paper.
Paint the flowers with clear water and sprinkle on a tiny bit of Yellow Ochre Brusho Crystals, you only need a few crystals. Spread the paint out with a paint brush.
Paint the surrounding area with clean water and sprinkle Sandstone and Moss Green Crystals on top. Move the paint around with a paint brush. Again, you need just a few crystals to cover the whole card.
Emboss a folded piece of kraft-core cardstock in the Happy Texture Textured Impressions Plus folder. The folder has a clever slot into which you can place the card, so that only the front is embossed. Emboss in a Big Shot Plus machine.
The embossed background. If you don't have a Big Shot Plus machine, you can use any embossing folder and run it through twice to cover the whole card.
Die cut a Postage Stamp Frame from brown kraft-core cardstock, sand and ink. Also sand and ink the embossed cardstock background.
The Dear Daffodils stamp is such fun to watercolour and I love the script pattern in the background.
Stamp a sentiment from the All Occasions Rubber Stamp Set on a Tattered Curvy Banner and ink the edges. Add a few pearls to the card for a final touch.
