Congratulations - Daisy Garden & Inspired Thoughts - Colour INKspiration challenges #CI106

Hello again! Today's card is one I have entered this into the Colour INKspiration Challenges #CI106, where the colour challenge was to use Basic White, Real Red, Pool Party and Night of Navy.

I used the Daisy Garden stamp set, the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and Stampin' Blends. Now this card had many incarnations before it eventuated into this card, with a few mistakes to boot. One of the helpful things was that the Stampin' Blends on Vellum could be cleaned up with Isopropyl Alcohol and it definitely saved this card.


- Use a piece of Night of Navy A4 card, cut in half lengthwise and folded. Attach a piece of Basic White card to the base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Use a piece of White Vellum and stamp the Daisy Garden stamp with Versamark Ink. Emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Colour the back of the Vellum image with Pool Party and Night of Navy Stampin' blends and use Isopropyl Alcohol with a waterbrush to move the colours around. Colour the back of the flowers with Real Red Stampin' Blends. Trim down the image to size to fit a smaller piece of Basic White card and attach with dabs of Liquid Glue. Attach the Vellum/card to the card base with Liquid Glue.

- Stamp a sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set using Versamark onto Real Red card and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder. Attach the sentiment to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add some Rhinestone Basic jewels which have been coloured with Pool Party Stampin' Blends to the card.
