Hello! This card was such a challenge….and totally pushed me out of my usual style. I have to admit to taking some inspiration from the other fabulous ladies in the Design Team at Stinkin’ Inkers on this one.
This card uses the Garden Girl stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue. I have a few projects with this stamp set coming up, but I think this one is my favourite. The girl is stamped in Archival Basic Black ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, she is then coloured with Watercolour Pencils. Now, I could have fully watercoloured this (particularly as I used Thick Very Vanilla – LOVE!) but instead of using water I blended the pencil with a Blender Pen.
I used the Stitched Shapes framelits to die cut out the stamped image. No, we don’t have a stitched rectangle die (I know, its disappointing) but its super easy to make a rectangle out of the square framelit…. I have tried to type out instructions, but I cant make it make sense…. probably should do a video!
The card is finished with an embossed background using the seaside textured embossing folder, and adding a sentiment from Beautiful You, and a bow in Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon.
