Here is my second post for Mother’s Day 2016 cards.
The card front is a single-layer, stamped onto a 4.00” x 5.25” piece of white cardstock which was later glued to an A2-sized colored mat that coordinated with the colors in the flowers and the entire front of the card was mounted onto a top-folding A2 card base.
I used an Altenew layered stamp set (Watercolor Wonders). This is such a beautiful stamp set. The sentiment is from another stamp set by Altenew as well (Wild Hibiscus). After stamping the flowers, I used Versamark ink to stamp the flower centers and then heat embossed them in gold.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I have trouble with the watercolor and layered stamp sets that are so popular now. I don’t seem to be able to get the layered stamping the way I want it or the colors the way I want. I’ve practiced many times, and I think I finally understand how to use the technique and line up the stamps (or at least the Stamping Gods were with me when I made this card).
I love the results.
This is wishing you a happy, belated Mother’s Day!
