The card I have for you today includes final sharing of Amazing Year stamp set and the Regency Park Designer Series Paper. Both are still available in the Last Chance Items sale. And are great items to have in your craft room!
Personally I love single stamps for a front image. This one is a favorite as it is simple and the tag fits a variety of occasions. Since the image is stamped onto a watercolored piece, I was hesitant about using the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. But it worked perfectly! I was very careful using the Stampin’ Blends for the bits that I colored though. The writing tip was a little easier to control how much ink came out. The watercolor paper can cause some smears.
To create the striped watercolor background was a piece of cake. Last weekend I was with a group of fellow demonstrators stamping, laughing, eating, and laughing some more. My upline created a card with a larger background like this.
To make the background, I used the Water Color Paper from Stampin’ Up! and the widest of the trio of brushes in the Water Painters. To add a couple of drops of re-inker to a bowl was all I needed with the water in the Water Painter. Mix it around and draw it across the paper. The imperfections are what makes it great. Of course, you do this before you stamp the image!! I used Crushed Curry for my stripes.
All of the colors are from the piece of DSP. It is from the Regency Park Designer Series Paper. Sweet Sorbet is the card base with Crushed Curry as the layer. The strip of Shaded Spruce came about as I was originally going to use that as the layer. Then decided the yellow stripes needed more yellow. But the strip was what was trimmed off and seemed like a fun addition to break up the two other colors.
The stripes stand out as something different on this card. But it still needed some bling for a finish. Pearls have always been a “go to” for me. So since I have quite a lot of them still, I went for what I love. They are scattered on the tag and one flower in addition to the trio at the top of the Shaded Spruce strip.
