Today I am super excited to be sharing a card as one of the guest designers for Concord & 9th’s Feature Friday post. You can check out the other designers and their work on the C&9th Blog.
This Friday we are focusing on Meadow Blossom stamp and coordinating die as well as the Brushed Stripes Background stamp. You can also pick up the Meadow Blossom Combo at a discount, if like me you are not a fan of fussy cutting,
I stamped the Meadow Blossom up with Ink On 3 Blackout Ink, which is Copic friendly, directly on a card base. The base is made with Neenah #110 card stock to make sure it is sturdy. After picking out the Copics I wanted to use, I proceeded to colour it in.
With the image coloured in, it was time to use the Brushed Stripes background stamp but first I had to cover up the Meadow Blossom part. With the help of the coordinating diecut, I cut out a mask and placed over the image.
Armed with my MISTI, I stamped up the Brushed Stripes Background over the image using Bamboo ink from Altenew. It’s a fresh spring green colour and matched the colour of the leaves pretty well. Thanks to the mask being bigger than the image, it left a nice clean ‘aura’ around the flower cluster.
Instead of using the original MISTI, which still had the background stamp in it, to stamp up the sentiment, ‘Missing you, Friend‘, I grabbed my Mini MISTI and stamped it with Blackout Ink until the sentiment was solid. I still need to re-ink my pad so it took me three stamps but as I had the Mini MISTI it was no problem at all.
As a final flourish, I added some…. ok, ok, quite a few… April Crystals from Studio Katia. These I adhered with the glue tube from Lawn Fawn and then it was time to step away before I got any other ideas.
