This card was show cased in the Magenta newsletter
How to instruction:
Stamp the first sunflower with Archival black in the middle of your card. Stamp it again on masking tape and mask of your first image so that you can stamp the sunflower also on the right and left side.
Remove the mask and start coloring in your images with distress inks (mustard seed and spiced marmalade) and a water brush. Once dry go over the center of the flowers with a versamark pen and adhere clear embossing powder on it and heat set.
The blue sky is created to add distress ink salty ocean with a big water brush, remove some ink with a paper towel, this will give you the light cloud effect.
The text stamp is from origin a 3 line stamp but I wanted the full text on one line at the top of the card. So I stamped it the 3 separate lines in 3 steps.
Stamp the bee 3 times with Archival black and color it with distress inks (mustard seed and spiced marmalade) with a water brush. Once dry add versamark to it and adhere it with a layer of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) from Ranger. Adhere the 3 bees on your card with glossy accents.
Finally I went with a black marker around the edges of the background to create a small border. Adhere the background on a white card.
