We're doing a Book Study as a group on NGS. We are using Nancy Curry's book "Texture Effects for Rubber Stamping". This is another card inspired by her Silent Whispers card. I wanted to make a card much like the card in her book. I love the color combination greens & purples. I started by stamping flowers with VersaMark ink on glossy card stock. Then heat set.I taped down a torn strip of masking tape and sponged on a blend of three shades of green dye inks with a jumbo dauber. Remember to rub on the dye ink firmly to expose the resist images. Rub the ink from the edge of the masking tape toward the right edge of the card.
I moved the masking tape and using a clean jumbo dauber, sponged on a blend of just the two lighter shades of green dye inks. I noticed on this card ( not the previous one I did with the same card stock) that the masking tape created a lighter shade of the blended inks. Looks great, so that doesn't bother me. It's just a curious event!?!?!
I continued to ink the card stock in this same way, until the whole card was covered.
I over stamped the flower images, using purple Adirondak ink on the flowers and the darker green dye ink on the stems.
Next, I over stamped several of the floral images with a lavender Brilliance ink, covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set.
I like this card the best of the ones I made today.
