I made this card for My Mom for Mother's Day. I have been wanting to try stamping on Kraft cardstock, so thought I'd combine a spotlight technique as well. I used Copic Markers to color in the image. I added borders of stitching around the border of both panels. I also sponged on some Brownie Ink for depth around the outer edges of the card. I stamped the sentiment in Sand ink and cut it apart to layer the sentiment as I did. I added some fibers to the corners for balance. This was really quick and easy to create, and I know my Mom will love it! Because I have to mail my Mom's card- no dimensional flowers of big bows....... but I think she will enjoy my card all the same!
I used :
A new stamp 'From the Garden'- Blossoms rubber stamp.
Inks: Memento Black Tuxedo (on sale) , SandCastles and Brownie Shades Die Inks
Copic Marker Sets from Sweet Stamps Sunshine and Victorian Green plus I outlined with W1 from Warm Shadow
To top off the color, I added a smidge of sparkle with a Lemon Spica Glitter Pen.
