Happy Saturday to all!
As usual, I will visit CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog during the weekends and try to find time to make a card for submission.
This week’s challenge is really inspiring, it’s not easy making a design simple while making it stand out. And I decided to take on CAS(E) This Sketch’s challenge together with CASology and try out simple card making with as few items as possible.
Armed with 3 distress markers and 2 stamps from Hero Arts, this is what I came up with.
The wonderful thing about Distress Markers is the ability to transfer the ink to the stamp easily, just by coloring it directly.
I used Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon for the flower, Forest Moss on the stalk. After inking up the stamp, I sprayed some water on the stamp to let the ink spread and mix a little before stamping on my card base.
This gives a much softer look on the stamped image.
For the sentiment, I used Forest Moss and stamp it in two different parts. First, I ink the “heart HAPPY” and stamp it below the stalk. Next, I bend the photopolymer stamp slightly for the “YOU MAKE ME” section so that it will be somewhat running parallel to the stalk.
I hope you like this clean and simple card using very simple card making technique. Have a wonderful weekend ahead!
