Birthday Blossoms

I am in love with this stamp set! I know there are a few videos and posts coming with this one – but that’s because I love it, and I only use what I love!

This card uses that lovely Ink Smooshing technique that I used a few weeks ago  (on this card!) I am planning a technique video on this one because I just love it! Its so super simple.

First stamp the sentiment in Versamark onto Watercolour Paper, and heat emboss with clear or white Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Grab your largest clear block (or tile, glass counter top etc.) and press your ink pad onto it! Spritz with water. Using a piece of Window Sheet, or the acetate panels that come with your photopolymer stamps, pick up the ink and water mixture and apply to your Watercolour Paper. Repeat until you have the effect desired. Here I picked up the ink and water mixture several times to get this dark colour.

When you mix your ink and water, you are diluting the colour, so the final result will be lighter, so the more you add, the darker the final result.

You can see the difference in colour tone between the ink smooshing and the stamped flowers – its all the same ink pad!
