Welcome to this week's edition of the Timeless Tuesday Challenge! This week's challenge comes to your from our super talented hostess, Broni this week! She is challenging us to create a card or project using the colours... blue and green (FTTC220)! And I have to tell you... these are my favourite colours for creating cards so I was tickled pink this week to be using this colour combo for my project. It reminds me of the sea...
I started off my card this week by die cutting one of our Perfectly Pierced Classic Window die shapes from our delicious Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. Leaving my cardstock in my die, I stamped my rose and rosehip image from the NEW "Old Tea Rose" stamp set using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink.
Then I created a mask as seen below. Typically, I like to create masks for stamping out of Post-It Notes. This allows me to create a mask that isn't too thick as to distort my inking along its edges. Sometimes I use just good copy paper like I did for today's mask. First I took the copy paper, fussy cut out my stamped images and then ran it through my Xyron Sticker Maker with Repositionable Adhesive in it. Works like a charm for making masks!!! Instead of throwing this out, I put my masks back on their waxy paper backing and slide them in with my stamp set... ready for next time!
Old Tea Rose", and stamped it across my images.
I used the following Copic Collections to airbrush and colour my card: BG01, BG13, T1, T2, T3 and T4:
I hope you've enjoyed my creation today. Make sure you take a moment and stop by all of our fabulous Friends of Flourishes Team members' and guest designer's blog today...
