Today I am sharing a card I made using @pennyblack Slapstick Cling stamp Passionate. I fell in love with this stamp the moment I saw it. I saw so many different ways to use it! The first time I tried it, I used my Tombow Dual tip markers and a water brush. It was awful!
I then looked closer at the stamp and realized that the shading was already built into the stamp. I don’t know where I have been and how I didn’t know about this, but I was absolutely amazed at the results once I started daubing the ink on instead of using my Tombows.
I used MementoLuxe inks in the shades of Lilac Posies, Pear Tart and Dandelion. I used Memento Dye inks in Rosebud, Bahama Blue and Bamboo Leaves. I started with the Lilac Posies and daubed it over all of the flowers. I used my MISTI for the entire project. I did the leaves in Pear Tart and then added a little Bamboo Leaves. I thin daubed on Rosebud over a majority of each flower, trying to avoid the edges, I then came in VERY lightly with Bahama Blue and just a touch of Dandelion.
I then swirled Distress Oxide Antique Linen and Gathered twigs in the background, even going over the flowers in some spots. I daubed on Lilac Posies on my card based and stamped the sentiment with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink. The sentiment is from Tim Holm Stampers Anonymous Glorious Bouquet. I used some foam tape on the back of my card panel to add a bit of dimension. The entire process took 40 minutes. The fail…an hour and a half! Lesson well learned.
Thanks for stopping by! See you later this week.
