Artistically Inked

Artistically Inked slimline card

Decided to have a little playtime with the Artistically Inked stamps and made a slimline card.

Chose the gorgeous (now retired) Purple posy cardstock and Wisteria Wonder ink along with Soft Sea Foam for my colours. Then started stamping.

I decided to make a slimline card … 7cm x 21cm and the top panel is 1 cm smaller to give a nice border as these seem to be very popular at the moment and not something I often make.

I stamped the alcohol ink like background 4 times on the panel and then stamped the more circular flower three times onto white cardstock. I also stamped the leaves a few times using soft sea foam.

I decided rather than using the dies to have a bit of chill out time and did fussy cutting instead.

I then layered up the flowers and the sentiment with foam between the top flower and the bottom flowers for dimension. I then added the little dew drop style embellishments for some shine.

Styled the photograph as professionals like Martin Stone do … lots of work but it looks good as a result.

Love the final card. A nice and simple card. I did think when I saw this in the catalogue when it first came out, that I would use this stamp set lots but to be honest I’ve not used it as much as I thought. It is gorgeous though so maybe should make more of an effort to use it.

Entering into the flowers challenge at Beyond the Blue

Happy crafting!
