For this first card, I stamped the moon in GKD White Pigment ink onto the Black Onyx cardstock and then stamped on the two step craters in Soft Stone ink. I doodled a little border with white gel pen and heart arrows to show the direction to bring you around and back again to the sweet sentiment. (The Guess How Much I Love You? book has a *very* special place in my heart) Greeting is stamped in Jet Back Amalgam on white cardstock and cut to look like a little cloud or though bubble. I stamped and cut out a couple hearts from Open Book with Red Velvet for a little love and "pop". base is the new GKD Soft Stone Pure Luxury cardstock, such a soft gray.
For my first I used the earth image with the globe stand (stamped in the new Soft Stone ink, perfect for a "silver"), and grabbed the long solid bar from Emily's Cake Toppers set again. (I liked how it turned out yesterday, so why not try it again?)
I stamped it across the GKD Jet Black Amalgam globe in Red Velvet, Tangerine Twist, Wild Dandelion, Grass Green, Tranquil Teal and Wild Lilac. Just a fun and unique way to fill it in, and easy additions color to your design! I cut it out and popped it up on my mat and then added the greeting. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White.
For this next card I stamped the flowers in Jet Black Amalgam and noticed the details were sooo small I was going to need to pull put my Zig Clean Color markers with the pointy tip! (My eyes are changing, ugh, no fun!) I would have used watercolor paper if I'd planned ahead, so it didn't blend as well as I'd hoped in some places, but oh well! I fully intended to use this with the globe base stamp, but then noticed it was just the right size to go in the new Heart Circle die.
I decided to pull out the purple and pink from my coloring and created a background using the smackin' acetate technique and the 4"x 6" acrylic block and Plum Punch and Passionate Pink ink cubes and a mister. (I did use watercolor paper on this mat allow for the colors to blend and move) I think it's really fun to mix up something more modern and messy like this spray paint effect with the delicate floral, unexpected and packs a punch! I love how you see all that gorgeous color through the heart cut outs, really makes you notice the detail in the die. Cardstock is GKD Pure Luxury White, Black Onyx, and Passionate Pink.
