WATERCOLOURED PAINTED POPPIES!

I want to share this card with you today.  I made it at our team Shoebox Swap last week.  I will show you the other cards we made later but thought I would show you this one today as I recreated it and filmed a video to show you how it was made.  Hope you like it.

It’s using the Painted Poppies set and is a fun card – although a little messy.  This card was shared to me by Deborah in our Inky Fingers Team.

 

Just a quick overview of how to make the card but be sure to watch the video (and you can subscribe to my channel on Youtube to catch new updates.  It’s early days but I am working on it!) 🙂

  1. Use your clear block and press the ink pad on to the block to get some ink.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink around and make it a little watery.
  2. Press the Painted Poppies “splodge” stamp on to the clear block to pick up some ink.  Press it on to your card.  I used Very Vanilla.  You could use Thick Whisper White, Shimmery White or Watercolor card.  Repeat this 3 more times over the card in a “circular” pattern.  Use the Aquapainter to spread the ink and also add some more ink from the block if you need to.
  3. Allow to dry then stamp the flower outlines over the “splodges”.  Stamp the leaves in black over the card.
  4. Use the large “splatter” stamp and ink it up in Mossy Meadow ink.  Stamp off first on scrap paper then stamp over the larger leaves.  Use the smaller “splatter” to stamp over the smaller leaves.  Clean the stamp, ink up the stamp in Gray Granite then stamp off first on to scrap paper. Stamp on the small leaves.
  5. Diecut flower centres add them to the card and stamp the sentiment.  Adhere the card to the card base.

Hope you have some messy fun with this card.

Have a great day,

Jenny
