I have a step by step tutorial for you today using images from several different
Innovative Stamp Creations sheets.
The face image is by Artist Cindy Roland from a newly released sheet called Thoughtfulness. Ready?
Stamp face using Versafine Smokey Gray ink on Whisper White CS.
Color flowers from Textures Sentiments & Flowers using Watercolor crayons (Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie & Real Red) Mist and stamp.
I added an additional flower to the right edge later to fill in.
Sponge face using Tim Holtz Distress inks (Tattered Rose & Worn Lipstick)
Stamp background words from ATC Elements II on lightweight vellum using VF smokey gray and a stamp positioner. I stamped off on scrap paper once before stamping on the vellum for a lighter shade.
Add a torn strip (1 1/2" x 4") of Real Red CS to the left edge of the vellum and stamp background words after stamping off on scrap paper with smokey gray ink. Then, the sentiment from Art Phrases using Stazon Jet Black
Add photo corners, mat on red and then a black card base. I toned down the lg. black brad with Adirondack alcohol ink/gold mixative, layered the flowers and mounted them on the card with foam dimensional tape.
