I have two cards to share with you today using the Blossom Bundle (Brushed Blossom plus Blossom Die). For the first card, I used various Distress Inks when I stamped the images. After it dried, I stamped the sentiment with Ranger black ink using my MISTI so I could get a dark, crisp look. A black frame added a beautiful contrast to the bright colors. I think I went a bit overboard with the splatters, but you really never know what you’ll get…
For my second card, I die-cut the Blossom Die with gold glitter cardstock. Gold looks great with everything. I used the die-cut to see where I would color and I added watercolors using Mission Gold watercolors. I removed the die so I could add more watercolors. I added some loose watercoloring around the edges and some splatters overall. Once it dried, I glued the gold die-cut over the colored area. I added a strip of gold glitter cardstock on the bottom to coordinate with the die-cut. I stamped the sentiment in green because I didn’t want a stark contrast like the first card.
I hope you enjoyed my work today! Leave a comment for your chance to win a $20 gift card.
