Gallery Idol 2010 Entry 3
So far they have around 300 entries in the Gallery Idol challenge!
So they odds aren't good but I just had to give it one more try. I picked up these clear stamp sets from Hero Arts when I was at Archivers yesterday. They had a beautiful sample using this floral stamp. It was inked using two colors of distress inks, wild honey and peeled paint. It really caught my eye.
For this card I decided to color it using SU markers, then misted with water and stamped on letter press card stock. The more water you use when misting the more of a water color look it will have. Added just a touch of color with a copic marker to the stems and leaves. One of our past governor's wives had a project of planting flowers along the interstate and these colors reminded me of one of the patches of flowers I saw on my trip to Raleigh.
This sentiment was one stamp but the size didn't work with the design of the card so I cut it apart so that I could use it on the top and bottom of the card. The scallop border was created with a Martha Stewart border punch.
The bird is from the Hero "Bird Trio" set. Stamped him twice, once on another piece of the card stock and cut out. The other time I stamped his little legs and feet on the bottom border. Added a little foam tape behind his body so it would stand out. He was colored using a blender pen and ballet blue ink.
Rounded the top corners of the white card stock and the green card that it is on. Really a quick easy card to make.
Thanks for visiting today!
