CAS on Sunday challenge #80 with a theme of Flowers.
TIME OUT CHALLENGES challenge #54, with an inspiration picture.
Tuesday Morning Sketches #346 with a sketch.
Here is my card.
I finally got around constructing a little "studio" to take my pictures, I went to my local craft store and bought some foam board, cut 2 12"x12" pieces and, with the left over, I just cut one more for the "floor", I put some heavy duty duct tape in the back holding the two big pieces so I could just fold it and store it when it's not being used. I think the problem I was having with my pictures was precisely LIGHTING. I don't have a specific lamp, I just used my table lamp and the natural light from the window, even if it's really cloudy and actually snowing, (ughhh!!) it was good enough to take this clear pictures.
This images are from a Power Poppy set called "Go Wild" , all of them are so beautiful. I stamped them onto Canson water color paper and this time, I stamped them with Versafine Onix Black ink, I heard this ink is perfect when using Photopolymer stamps, it stamps incredibly detailed lines, the stamp DOES NOT stick to the paper and you only need to stamp it once, I was using Stazon Jet Black ink for a long time but this is much better for this clear stamps. I still use the Stazon but only with red rubber stamps.
The only thing with this ink is that it needs to be allowed to dry to water color the image, but I just used the heat gun and it dried in seconds. I colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, the pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is from the same set and the ribbon is from my bottomless stash. Here is a picture of the inside of my card.
The sentiment is from Power Poppy's "Best Day Ever" , super fun Summer images.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.
I used several of the colors in this picture.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
