Card – Watercolor Stamping
Hi, it’s Gini, and I have to tell you…fall is my very favorite time of the year. I love the colors, the smells and the feel in the air. I’m so excited that I can start creating projects centered around this season. As I was looking through
my ever-growing stash of May Arts Ribbon, this Orange and Ivory Grosgrain beauty caught my eye and inspired this card.
- May Arts Ribbons: RG 1.5"x30y – GGRAIN/IVORY STRIPES (RG14); .420 2mmx100y Paper Cord (420-10)
- Tombow: Dual Brush Pens(Jelly Bean Collection); Mono Adhesive Power Bond; Power Tabs
- Heartfelt Creations: Swirly Autumn Leaves Precut Stamp Set HCPC 3328
- Spellbinders: Romantic Rectangles; Imperial M-Bossability Folder
- Core’dinations: Cardstock
- WorldWin Papers: Cardstock
- American Crafts Button
- Die cut a decorative panel from Kraft cardstock, and distress the edges with ink.
- To create a watercolor stamped effect, color directly onto the stamp with the Tombow pens. Lightly mist the stamp before making the impression onto the Kraft panel.
This is a great technique for a multi-colored stamp (such as autumn leaves).
- Emboss the Core’Dinations cardstock, and lightly sand the raised areas. Assemble the layers of the card using the Tombow Mono Adhesive – Power Bond.
- Tie a bow with the Grosgrain ribbon. To add a button embellishment to your bow, thread both ends of the paper cord, through opposite holes in the button, both coming from the bottom up, to make a loop.
- Slip the loop around the bow, slide the button down next to the bow, and tie a smaller bow using the paper cord. Attach the bow with the Power Tabs.
Have you looked at all of the wonderful ribbons that May Arts has for fall? I can’t wait to see what autumn inspirations you come up with!
