I love adding little details to change a card slightly and I have two cards that I created with the same materials but one extra twist on each to make them slightly different from each other.
I have several card kits that I enjoy receiving each month. One of the kits is the MFT Stamps card kit. This one never disappoints. I always seem to get a beautiful stamp set with lots of sentiments and some coordinating dies. Plus they send a sheet of ideas and inspiration along with lots of card stock and some specialty papers.
The September Beautiful Blooms kit was no exception! I happily had time to play with this yesterday after work. I really needed time to decompress from a stressful day, but I didn’t have a lot of time to create a card.
I selected a quick watercolor technique and the beautiful stamps, dies and papers in this kit did the rest.
This is the card that I made last night. I LOVED the card and hated the video. I recreated both today.
I used some Hero Arts mini ink cubes for my color: Fiesta red, teal, yellow and a deep red color. I also created my splatter with black soot distress oxide ink. That layered beautiful die came with the kit as did a die that cuts out the giant bloom. The secondary sentiments in the set are fabulous. I’m sending this one to my daughter. I think she will enjoy this card.
Instead of the splatter, for today’s card I used some perfect pearls powder to get a shimmery effect.
This has less yellow in it than the first card. I love how no two cards will ever be alike with this quick and easy technique. It is virtually a stress free technique because you don’t have control over how the inks blend on the card.
You can see a used a second sentiment creating a whole different message on this card!
Isn’t that persimmon card stock fabulous with the ink colors? It feels like a fall card to me.
Here is a peek at the shimmer! It is so pretty in person!
Here is a video I created to share this technique:
