Hello everyone! This is Deepti Stephens from Catchy Design
and I’m so happy and honored to be the spotlight designer for the month of August. Thank you so much Honey Bee Stamps and team for having me!
Today I’m going to be showing you how I made this card using the gorgeous stamps called ‘Country Wreath’ and ‘Happy Everything’ stamp sets. I used Ink Smooshing, Heat embossing and sponge dauber coloring techniques for my project today!
I took a standard sized Neenah Solar White Card stock as my base and the Tim Holtz water-color paper as my main panel. I took the wreath from Country Wreath stamp set and stamped it on to the water-color paper with Antique Linen distress ink.
Then I took a small piece of acetate, smooshed the same ink pad and spritz some water and smooshed it on to the background. To speed up the drying process I used my heat it tool. I love adding tiny details of gold and black. So I added droplets of gold paint from ColorArte with a paint brush.
Next I stamped all the flowers and a few leaves with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Ranger gold embossing powder!
Next I took a sponge dauber, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry distress inks and applied the color with the dauber to the flowers and Frayed Burlap distress ink for the leaves. This is one of the easiest ways to color your images.
I fussy cut everything with a pair of scissors.I adhered and stacked all the flowers and leaves with Tombow glue and foam. Stamped the sentiment on to the black card stock piece and adhered it on to the floral part with a foam tape.
And to finish off my card I added a few clear and white sequins from Avery Elle. This card looks so artsy!! What do you think?
I have filmed a video from start to finish on how I put this card together.
I hope you like this card and I hope you got inspired. Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care and I will see you again on next Saturday.
