Hello friends! Lately, I have been having a lot of fun playing with all the New Mystic Romance Collection by Fun Stampers Journey. This collection is one of my favorites from the New FSJ 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog, specially because it showcases beautiful stamps that have a stitched or embroidery look. Richard Garay and my team pals have been posting projects using this collection, so please be sure to see all of them: >Richard 1< >Laura< >Michelle< >Patricia 1< >Patricia 2< and >Richard 2< All of these projects are simply amazing!
Today I am sharing a card that I created using a stamp set called Stitched Dreams. This set features a swan image along with a pretty bee and some beautiful flowers.
I begun by arranging the different flower stamps over an acrylic block. Then, I put Banana Cream and Bubble Gum Liquid colors over the Gel press (I will explain a little bit more about this Gel Press in my next post). After that, I rolled the Brayer a few times over the Gel Press to pick up the colors. I transferred the ink from the Brayer directly over the stamps by rolling it. Next, I simply stamped the flowers over a Whip Cream rectangle. I picked up more color from the Gel press with the brayer, and I stamped the images again. I repeated this a few times to create the background. Besides that, I rolled the brayer over the edges to distressed them. I added some stitches marks with a die that belongs to a set called Pocket Cuts. I sprinkle a little bit of Limeade Splash Liquid color over the background with a brush, just to complement my combo and then, I adhered the panel onto a Bubble Gum cardstock card.
I stamped the swan over Whip Cream cardstock with Black Licorice ink. I die cut one swan with its matching die, I colored its beak with a Burst Color pencil, and I applied Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts over the swan’s tail. I stamped another swan on another piece of Whip Cream cardstock, and I apply Journey Glaze and Sparkle cuts over the wing. I trimmed the wing with my scissors and I adhered it over the other whole swan. I used a glue dot and two small foam squares to give a little bit of dimension to the wing… so pretty!
To finish this card I added some Lemon Grass thread, a sentiment that I white embossed over a Black Licorice cardstock strip, Whip Cream Sparkle Tape, and I added some sequins. I really liked how this card turned out!
