Rose Watercolored Card Set


Hey there! Today I am here today to bring you a trio of cards created with this GORGEOUS background stamp from the Ton.  The guys are so SIMPLE to make! Like seriously…

The stamp makes these cards! This new rose background stamp from The Ton is fantastic!  It ranks up there with the Peony Garden background stamp I just love so much.  To create these cards, I inked up the stamp with a few different color distress inks. Using the mini pads were helpful because I could get into all detailed areas of this stamp with the different colors (exact colors I used are linked at the end of this post). After I inked of the stamp, I sprayed it with some water and pressed my watercolored card panel (I used distress watercolored cardstock)  onto the stamp. Then WITHOUT reinking the stamp, I pressed my cardstock onto the stamp two more times! I LOVE the look this leaves…… The intense color of the first one and then as the color fades a bit with each other stamped after….




To finish off the card sets, I stamped some sentiments from the Get it Girl stamp set with some Onyx Black pigment ink and then heat set it with some clear embossing powder to really make the sentiment pop against the background.

Thanks so much for stopping in today! I really appreciate it!
