Hello. Today’s card was actually inspired (in a way) by a piece of paper I had ink blended on months ago. I recently found it laying under a stack of papers on my incredibly messy desk. Let’s get started!
Searching through my pattern paper, I saw scraps of Pretty Little Studio: Treasure Island, which I thought would work well with the ink blended piece.
I mounded this to an A2 sized card in American Crafts Teal. The Pretty Little Studio piece was trimmed down to 4” w x 5.25” h.
With the Ink Road Stamps: Lacey DIY Window Die, I used the 2.25” square. Next, I cut through both the card from and the pattern paper to reveal a window. This will let us see the inside blended piece of paper and an image.
Going through my Ink Road Stamps, I pulled out the Lucy – Happy Mail set. The size of these stamps is perfect for the window size and I was excited to add some color to the image.
Next, I stamped the hedgehog with mail box on white card stock in Ranger Archival Ink. I painted the image in using Prima Pastel Dreams, and Jane Davenport Brights Palette watercolors. Sticking to the cool colors from the pattern paper.
After adhering the blended piece to the inside of my card, I closed the card to figure out placement for my painted image. I lined this up towards the bottom of the window and adhered it flat to the page.
I wanted to ground the image, so I added a saved strip of the pattern paper from the front of the card below the stamped image (only visible from the inside).
To finish off the card, I stamped a greeting from Lucy – Happy Mail on a piece of Lawn Fawn aqua card stock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I heat embossed the image with Brutus Monroe Icicle Ultra Fine Embossing Powder. Adhering this piece to the card front with foam adhesive.
And there we have it!! This card was so fun to put together while exploring some great Ink Road Stamp products!
Thanks for joining me today. Have a great day and create freely!
