Don't Forget

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For this card I used a centre left over from a Coconut White frame (as you know, I make quite a few of those!) so it is pierced around the edges.

I started by misting it with Clover, Buttercup and Vintage Sage Ink Spray Mists, removing the excess between each spray with kitchen roll.

I misted some Clover Mister onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam to make an 'ink pad'. I used this to stamp a section of the Justrite Text Background Stamp several times, re-inking between each one.

I repeated the process with Vintage Sage Mister and the Justrite Chicken Wire Background Stamp.

I made another 'ink  pad' with the Buttercup Mister. I used this to pounce through the Wavy Mask in several places.

I stamped the main image from the Justrite Multi-Step Don't Forget Bouquet Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I added a couple of the solid hearts and a the little birdie from the same set. I used some more of the solid stamps from the set to colour in the image using Baked Peach CS Colour Cloud applied with a Smoothie.

I stamped one of the swirly style stamps a few times using Jet Black Archival.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set, again using Jet Black Archival (I actually used 2 separate stamps).

I popped a little CS White Gesso onto my Craft Sheet. I used 2 of the solid circle stamps from the set and stamped using the Gesso.

Using my Vintage Sage 'ink pad', I inked around the edges.

I made a card blank out of Black Card and added my piece to it. An actual card!
