Direct to Stamp Flowers


Good morning! Here is another simple sample and easy layout I made with my new Wild Flowers set when it first arrived, just playing with Memento Markers (Cantaloupe, Potter Clay, Bahama Blue, Danube Blue, Bamboo Leaves, Cottage Ivy). It is so fun doing "Direct to Stamp" with new rubber and finding all the the gorgeous color combos you can create! :) TIP: Always ink up your images with lighter colored inks first and then go over with darker ones to avoid staining lighter pads and makers.Flowers are traced with Sakura glitter pens and cardstock is Pure Luxury Blue Raspberry, Black Onyx and White.A tiny bit of dimension was added to the butterfly and flower centers with a Black glaze pen.

If you came from the CardMaker blog, thanks so much for visiting! :) I'd love for you to stop back for more step by step technique tutorials with Wild Flowers and Wild at Heart this month and become a subscriber! Thanks, CardMaker, for the guest spots these past few weeks!

Hugs to you all!

What a beautiful card and love that idea of direct to stamp art. I haven't done that for a long time, but just last night did a card with that method. I hope to make several Mother's Day cards to send to the soldiers with that idea too. Thanks for sharing your talents.

How pretty! I have wanting to get a good set of stamp markers...I will have to try these Monetos. I trly love the flower stmaps...I so want to get it!!!
And the sentiment "God is good all the time" is best thing on the project becuase it is SOOOOOOOOOOO ture! With Him, I would be totally lost (with a capital L) and I would not have the hope that all is in His Hands even when life gets tuff.
Blessings to you!
