The 2nd Spring Flowers card


So here is the other card made with the same Spring Flowers stamp but this time it was stamped repeatedly in order to get multiple flowers. This is another stamp that I really like mostly because it is so quick to colour so it is great when you need a card in a hurry! I am a great fan anyway of the whole Denami range as I really like the clean simple lines of their stamp range.


You'll see that the backgrounds for this card are entirely different to the other one and were achieved using 2 slightly different 'resist' techniques using a Judikins background stamp and Marvy Blending Blox. The blue/purple background was done on glossy cardstock (Kromekote) and the green/olive background was on textured card. For the blue/purple background the flowery image was stamped repeatedly onto Kromekote with Versamark and left to dry - approx 15 minutes. Both the blue and purple inkpads were tapped onto a brown craft mat several times, spritzed with water and applied to the card with a sponge. Providing your imagery is properly dry the Versamark will resist the dye-based ink. The other background is achieved by applying green and olive inks in the same way but this time the image is stamped with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Again all these materials are available from Stamp Addicts.
