I'm back with more delightful, new products from My Favorite Things. I have a big old crush on today's products, the Sketched Blooms 2 stamp set and Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics.
Floral stamp sets are a weakness of mine and the new Sketched Blooms 2 set is gorgeous and lends itself to so many different techniques and styles. I stamped my card base with a few of these images, then moved on to my aqua rectangle, cut using the new Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics. On this layer, I stamped my images with watermark ink and heat embossed them using white embossing powder.
Then I moved on to my messy, watercolored flowers in the foreground. These were stamped on watercolor cardstock the heat embossed layer was meant to be scattered and soft and messy, as I like the way these flowers look that way. I left some embossing powder on to further enhance this effect, instead of stamping them very precisely and cleanly. After I heat embossed my blooms, I added water and more ink using my water brush.
Lastly I added my sentiment, part comes from the new Words for Friends Die-namies, and the stamped portion comes from the new Lots of Hugs stamp set. I used a Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics to anchor this section of my sentiment....these are must haves in my craft stash of supplies :). Some of the colors used on my card today come from Set 16 - Premium Dye Ink Cubes and Set 17 - Premium Dye Ink Cubes...such loves colors in both of these sets.
