|SCS CC 528 using Stampscapes Stamps|
I decided to do another Shabby Chic card and use some of my Stampscapes Stamps. I don't think I have ever tried to combind Stampscapes with Shabby before. This has been an experiment! When I pulled this image out, I was thinking of making a masculine card but I just couldn't help but add flowers and pearls! Yes, it's another morphed card!!!! When I chose the designer paper with the light blue roses and browns, well let's just say that things went another way!
The blue corners and border strip are from the Tim Holtz vintage shabby collection papers, but that blue oval was white card stock that I sponged with the two blue inks. Why did I do it that way? Well I started with the image and the ovals first. I keep a stash of white/misc. colors of die cuts on hand and I started there first. This saves time as I design a card. Later, as the card came together, I realized that the TH designer paper worked perfectly with my design. I hand colored the flowers with ink and an aqua painter. The two sets of flowers on the ends were individual blossoms that I stacked together and added a half back pearl center.
How did I color the image? I used Kevin Nakagawa's [stampscapes creator] techniques using glossy card stock, sponge applicators, water based dye markers and ink pads. You can find his video tutorials here.The only thing I do differently is use black Stazon ink to stamp my images. This one was so simple and I didn't even highlight anything so it really was quick!
