Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the brand new Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set and coordinating Heartfelt Wishes Dies. I combined these new stamps and dies with my favorite Freestyle Florals Stamps and Dies for a pretty thank you card.
For the background, I stamped two of the greetings from the Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greetings with white embossing powder.
To create the resist effect, I applied Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink, Twisted Citron Distress Ink and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over the embossed greetings using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. Then I liberally spritzed the background with water from a Mini Mister to get the ink to move and for the watercolored look I was wanting for this card.
For the floral accent, I stamped a flower and leaves from the Freestyle Florals Stamp Set on the Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the images with white embossing powder before coloring in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The individual marker colors I used are linked to multiple sources below in supplies and the color numbers are shown in the upper left corner of the screen in the how to video. Once the ink dried, I die cut the images with the coordinating Freestyle Floral Dies.
To finish the card, I added a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins.
