The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Woodgrain Happy Father's Day Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I have a Father's Day card to share with you along with a tutorial on how I did the ink blending for the background of the card.

Here is the card I designed.  I used the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Layering Stencil along with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks to create the background.

I started with a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper on my Ranger Non-stick Craft Mat Sheet.  I used the Mini Ink Blending Tools and three of the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks Antique LinenPeeled PaintVintage Photo.  I went over each color two times to get a nice smooth blend.

Next, I added water droplets using the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer.  I used a paper towel to blot up the water.  

Then, I used some painters tape to hold the stencil in place.  I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and the Walnut Stain ink with the stencil.

Here is a look at the paper after the stenciling was done.  

The stenciling looked good but I wanted the colors to still look deeper so I applied a layer of the walnut stain ink over the entire piece.  I love how this turned out and that you can see all the different colors which helps to give the card more depth.

I used a sentiment from the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps - All Occasions Sentiments SET 2 SS-031 stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark Ink onto black cardstock.  Then, I applied Ranger Super Fine Embossing Powder - White and used my heat tool to melt and heat set the powder.  I love the white embossing on back cardstock--it really pops!  Then I added some of the  May Arts Satin String Leaves Olive and May Arts Satin String Leaves Rust along the bottom and at the top of the card.  I did use a little bit of hot glue behind some of the leaves to help hold the ribbon in place.  To finish off the card I added a few black My Mind's Eye Record It Charmed Enamel Dots.

I hope you enjoyed today's card share.  This is a card that could be used for several different occasions by simply switching out the sentiment.
