Hello Lovely + Arteza pens = happy Erica

August 19, 2018

Hello, hello, hello!

Today is my last post for the month of August and I have a bright, summery card to celebrate the fact that it is indeed very much summer where I am. I love summer, sunshine and warm breezes. Just not too hot.. I easily turn into a sweaty mess and ain’t nobody got time for that, eh?? But mild warm weather I absolutely love. And who doesn’t love flowers?? Only weirdos for the record, lol!

For this card I have used the absolutely gorgeous Bella Flora stamp set. I am such a sucker for flowers, florals and leaves. If I had to choose only one category of stamps to use for the rest of my life it would be florals hands down. Even over cute critters! And if they come with coordinating diecuts, which the Bella Floral does, even better!!

This year my sister gifted me the 48 pack of Arteza real brush pens set and I wanted to use them for these stamps, so I got some lovely textured water colour card stock out and pre-cut it to an A2 sized panel. I used my anti-static tool very generously on it and then, using my MISTI, I stamped two of the flower clusters in black ink a couple of times to get a good impression. When your card stock is textured, it’s nice to be able to stamp the image more than once to get a really solid impression and I don’t know about you, but I can’t line up the images very well free-hand so thank goodness for my MISTI!

Once I was happy with the solidness of the images, I used my dirty VersaMark ink pad and stamped it yet again. I have a perfectly clean and white VersaMark ink pad which I use for clean stamps and then I have this dirty one I use for projects where it doesn’t matter if some of the colour transfers to the stamped image. For me, this is a great crafting hack to use as I do not like it when my white or clear embossing powder looks dirty once it’s heat embossed, which is quite likely to happen when you use a dirty VersaMark ink pad.

After all the flowers were heat embossed it was time to colour! I used reds, oranges and yellows to create some very vivid coloured flowers. These markers works like the Zig markers but have much bigger brush nibs and react well with water from what I have noticed so far. I quite like them! The leaves were done in greens and the little buds and other details in more muted colours.

To finish off the card I stamped ‘hello lovely’, from the stamp set, in black ink and heat embossed clear embossing powder over it. A few matte black sequins, I got these from a haberdashery years ago, were the final touches. After it was all dry, I adhered the panel to a white card base and hey, presto! All done!

Thanks for stopping by today! Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
