Hey there! We had a lovely Sunday afternoon yesterday! After grilling hamburgers, the family hung out on our front porch and played games while the kiddos played in the yard and sandbox my husband had built. It's so relaxing to watch little ones wander around in the yard, dabble on the swings, and scoop sand. A wonderful day!
Today I have another card created with Painter's Palette and Love & Affection stamp sets. It was my "warm up" to the easel blog hop card last week. Click THIS LINK to check it out and take the hop!
I started by stamping the easel from Painter's Palette with Archival Basic Black ink on a 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White:
Now, just imagine that I stamped the easel again on a Post-it note, cut out the square, then put it over the stamped "canvas" on the easel. (I apparently forgot to take a picture of this step, sorry. Ever get so excited that you get ahead of yourself? That's what happened with this card!)
I stamped the brush strokes with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach with the mask over the canvas, then stamped leaves and splatters with Pear Pizzazz.
After removing the mask I stamped Archival basic Black flowers and tiny blooms inside the flowers with Flirty Flamingo or Peekaboo Peach. I filled the canvas with the phrase from Painter's Palette and more little blooms.
This technique really makes the easel on this completely flat card really stand out!
Inside I followed up with another Painter's Palette phrase and more stamping to coordinate with the card front.
