Art Gallery & 

A Touch of Ink

For this card I used the above sketch, the Art Gallery stamp set,  the coordinating Fine Art Floral Designer Series Papers (DSP) and the new Painted Texture embossing folder.  

I find designing from a sketch is both challenging and loads of fun.

  • The base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Terracotta Tile scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Petal Pink layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Smoky Slate layer is 5 x 3 3/4 and is embossed with the Painted Texture folder.
  • The 3 1/8" square of Petal Pink is cut from corner to corner, and is the base for the 3" square of Fine Art Floral, also cut corner to corner.
  • The Terracotta Tile rectangle is 3 3/8 x 2 1/2 and is the base for the Petal Pink 3 1/4 x 2 3/8 layer.  
  • The Basic White layer is 3 1/8 x 2 1/4.
  • The flower stamp is inked with Petal Pink.  Then I took a small wet paper towel and wiped away the ink from the stem, leaf and small little flowers.  I used Old Olive and Daffodil Delight markers to color on the stamp, gave it the "breath of life" (breathed on the stamp to moisten the ink), and stamped.  Next I stamped the three petals with Terracotta Tile, and a smaller stamp in the set.
  • The words are from A Touch of Ink, (free during Sale-a-Bration), and stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
  • I popped up this combination with dimensionals.
  • All done!!!  Remember to decorate your envelope.
