Good morning! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! I’m continuing to experiment with new-to-me ink blending combinations and I found one that’s perfect for your autumn crafting and uses the fantastic new Crackling Campfire color from Tim Holtz!
To start I stamped the Flamingo Botanical from Rabbit Hole Designs onto a panel of strathmore bristol smooth cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I used blending brushes to blend Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, and Crackling Campfire distress oxide inks across the panel. The blending brushes from Rabbit Hole Designs are my absolute favorite for achieving soft but smooth blends! And the price point can’t be beat! 😉
In all the years I’ve owned distress products I’m not sure if I’ve ever used Tattered Rose before…but it’s quite pretty! Sort of a soft peachy pink that’s just perfect with the other colors! After I finished blending I splattered the panel with water, shimmer spray, white gouache, and gold paint. Once it was dry I used a soft cloth to buff the ink off of the embossed areas.
Next I stamped a few more flowers onto vellum and heat-embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder. I fussy cut them and then arranged them across the panel. I used vellum adhesive to adhere them and then trimmed off the overhang. Then I stamped the sentiment from Flamingo Botanical onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. I stamped it twice, masking off one line each time so that I could get the sentiment in two pieces. I trimmed them down to thin labels and then adhered them to the panel with foam mounting tape. Finally I finished the card with a sprinkling of gold sequins and gold crystals!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have an amazing day!
Such a pretty card Jessica. I love the vellum layer.
