Popping by to share a few one layer cards I created using the upcoming set, Floral Bliss (preview of the set is here)
For this CAS card, I brayered Delicata gold ink in the center, used Faber-Castell PITT Artist big brush pen to stamp the larkspur, and then stamped askew the grunge frame in Hero Arts raspberry jam mid-tone shadow ink.
Linking up card #1 to: Addicted to Stamps and More #154: CAS; CASology #156 - Line (thick gold line, lined drawing/stamp of the flower)
For the second card, I did
some a lot of masking. I first stamped the frame in Delicata gold ink, masked it then went to town with stamping the zinnia in gold ink all over the card base. I stamped it again inside the frame and colored with Chromatix alcohol marker. I finished it off with the sentiment.
Linking card #2 to: Simply Papercraft #9 - Anything Goes; Aud Sentiments #136 - Anything Goes + A Sentiment; Crafting with an Attitude #5 - Anything Goes
For the third card, I was still in the mood to mask and I thought I'd do a reverse of the second card. So I stamped and masked the zinnia, dahlia, and cosmo. I colored them with various Chromatix alcohol markers and gave the background a little faux texture by stamping the grunge newsprint and dotty background (from Mixed Media Grunge) in coffee Ranger archival ink.
Linking up card #3: Crafting with Friends #2 - Anything Goes; Chocolate, Coffee & Cards #96 - Flower; Stempelsonne #146 - Anything Goes
For the fourth card, I thought I'd get a little artsy. I must admit that the helenium is my favorite stamp in the bunch. I inked it up with Faber-Castell PITT Artist big brush pen and stamped, masking as I went along and then colored with Inktense pencils. I watercolored the background with both Inktense pencils and Japanese Sai watercolor markers, stamped a few grunge images (again from the Mixed Media Grunge set) in coffee Ranger archival ink, and then finished the card by stamping the sentiment in the center.
Linking up card #4 to: Fantasy Stampers #41 - Pretty Petals; Brown Sugar Challenge #156 - Anything Goes; Just Us Girls #303 - Photo Week (those orange chairs and green pots were what caught my attention); Sister Act Card Challenge #116 - Always Anything Goes; Southern Girls Challenge - Get Messy with Ink or Paint
