Hello everyone! Today, I have to a fun and colorful summertime card to share with you. I used some of the rubber stamps from the Summer Fun 2016 collection from Pink Ink Stamp Company to create an embossed resist watercolor card.
This is almost a one layer card. I used Versa Mark ink to randomly stamp the Flowery Flip Flops stamp on to a piece of Strathmore mixed media paper. Then I added white embossing powder and used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder. Next I used Distress Inks on a craft mat and added water to them to create the rainbow watercolor look on the card front. I added clean water to the entire piece of paper and then added the color. Doing this helps the colors to flow and blend together. I added a couple of layer of color and used a heat tool to speed up the drying time. These are the colors of Distress Ink I used -- picked raspberry, ripe persimmon, squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn, salty ocean, seedless preserved.
Once the paper was dry I used a slightly damp paper towel to wipe off the excess ink on top of the embossing. Doing this will really help to make the white embossed areas pop. Next I stamped the Flip Flop Life sentiment on to a piece of velum using Versa Mark ink and heat set with white embossing powder. I taped the velum to the back side of the card. Then I added some white craft foam to the back of the paper using scor-tape. I mounted the card front to an A2 top folding white card base.
To finish off the card I added some crystal reflections sequins for a little bit of sparkle. I love how the sequins match the rainbow colors so perfectly.
I hope you enjoyed today's card! Thanks so much for stopping by the Pink Ink Blog. I hope you have a beautiful and creative day!
