For this first card, I got to use a couple of my Stamping Royalty winnings: the Lil' Inker Dad die and the stamp set that goes along with it. I love how this turned out. It's masculine and cool. I am submitting the card for this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Father's Day/Masculine.
This second card is one of my faves. The stamps I used are both Stamping Royalty prizes: Amuse Studio Haunted Mansion Background and the sentiment is from Neat and Tangled's Just for You set.
For both cards, I started by stamping the background with Versamark ink onto watercolor paper, then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used the mini inking tool to brush on the distress inks, then spritzed the paper with water to make the colors blend a bit. After it dried, I used my iron to iron off the embossing so I was left with a smooth finish on the paper. On the second card, I didn't have any pink paper that went with the colors on the card, so I used the picked raspberry on the edges of plain cardstock and then mounted the watercolor paper on top. I love how it pulls the raspberry color out of the card.
That is all for today! I'll be back tomorrow with more goodies! Until then...
