Floral cards with 3 creative techniques

Hello dear crafters,
Ishani here. Did you check my last post of 3 floral cards with the You’re in my thoughts stamp set  and the Video tutorial ? Today I have some more floral card ideas which you can try with any of your floral stamps. But for my cards I am using the same stamp that has been recently launched You’re in my thoughts . We are playing with theme – feminine for this month’s challenge and I thought florals perfectly represent, everything feminine.

monthly craft challenge - September 2020

These floral cards also use some techniques which can be used with any floral stamp

Ghost Stamping and Water Painting florals

Floral cards with 3 creative techniques 1

For the first card, I used Distress oxides in Peacock feathers and Cracked Pistachio and blended on Dual texture cardstock with Blending brushes. Then after the ink was dry I stamped the flower with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I applied some water on the stamp with a brush and stamped twice behind my embossed flower that gives a ghost stamping effect but actually is just water stamping. You can try this with any water reactive inks. Distress Oxides give a very good result.

Then I took water brush and removed color from the inside of my flowers and stamped a sentiment and white heat embossed it. I diecut my ink blended cardstock and adhered on top folding dual texture white notecard with foam tape.

The second card is an easy watercolour technique with some selective stamping of the floral images at two corners. I stamped my images on Strathmore Bristol card stock with water proof ink – Archival jet black and did some loose watercoloring with tombow markers and water. For some more texture I added splatters of CrafTangles watercolors in poolside and goldust that were left on my palette from the previous project.

The third card is the quickest and the simplest of the three, using just stamping, minimal coloring and ink blending. I staterted with blending Distress oxides in Spun Sugar and Worn lipstick on Dual texture cardstock. I sprinkled some water to lift off the ink for a dewy background. Then I stamped the flowers on white cardstock and just colored a little with grey color marker, for some depths. I fussy cut the flowers and arranged on my ink blended panel and adhered with glue. I stamped the sentiment from the same set and added Gem drops n clear Quartz to imitate dew.
