Welcome to the last guest day on the blog. Today’s guest is Tasnim! You may know her as one of the owners of Altenew stamps. I totally love their stamps – they have some very unique designs.
Tasnim has created something fantastic for you today using one of Altenew’s new stamp sets. And she created a video too! 🙂
Thank you Tasnim for sharing your wonderful talents with us!…
This is Tasnim from Cardsandbookmarks.com. I am so happy to be guest designing here today! I have admired Darlene’s work ever since I started this hobby, and it is such an honor to be sharing a card with you today on her blog!
This card features how you can achieve a painted look using stamps, Distress inks, and a wet brush.
I used a 4″ x 4″ heavy weight water color paper for the card front. The flower stamp is from Altenew’s Scribbled Flowers set, and I stamped it in second generation using Distress ink Barn Door. Using a slightly damp brush, I went over each colored area and flicked the color outwards, making sure to leave some areas white to reflect highlights. I stamped the smaller flower by simply wiping off some of the ink from the outer petals before stamping. The leaves were stamped using Distress inks Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shatters, and I used the same coloring process with them.
The floral frame (Memory Box Jasmine Frame Craft die) was die cut out of white card stock and adhered using Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue. The sentiment was embossed in gold on a stip of white card stock, trimmed and adhered with foam tape. Finally, the water color panel was then adhered to a 4″ x 4″ card base.
Watch the video to see how I made this card from beginning to end.
Thank you for stopping by, and Darlene, thanks for having me over!
Thanks for helping me welcome all these talented ladies over the last couple of weeks. I will see you next Wednesday for a brand new video!
