Paper craft project no. 148: Always there for me

2014-02-27 OLC Always there for me
Here’s a very CAS one layer card. I rubbed various Inktense block colors on my focal image, spritzed the stamp lightly with water before stamping onto the card base. With a brush, I painted over the vase and flowers using the same colors I used to stamp the image. (I really love the vivid colors produced by Inktense blocks.) I stamped the sentiment in dark blue ink and then added 3 small pearls to finish this very simple card.

Stamps: Simple Flowers and Sentiments, SUBWAY ART BUILDERS: Mom – Quiet Strength (STAMPlorations)
Ink: Paris Dusk (Memento/Tsukineko); Sun Yellow, Tangerine, Poppy Red, Fuchsia, Leaf Green, Bark Inktense Blocks (Derwent)
Card Base: 140-lb Cold-Press Watercolor Paper (Canson)
Other: White Pearls (The Paper Studio); Waterbrush; Heat-It Tool (Ranger/Inkssentials)

1. The Card Concept #4 – Use a Floral Theme (my card style: CAS)
