Using a stamp from an unknown source that was buried in my 'tulip' drawer, I inked it up with 3 different colors of IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaMagic™ Chalk Pigment Ink in Thatched Straw, Mango Madness and Aloe Vera. The dew drop size was perfect because the pointed end allowed me to stamp in tight places. The juiciness of the VersaMagic™ allowed me to stamp a color over another if need be. One side of the tulip petal image was inked with Thatched Straw and the other half of the image was inked with Mango Madness, and then stamping the stems and leaves with Aloe Vera. I heat embossed over the stamped image with clear embossing powder from Stampendous®.
After the paper had dried, I went back over some of the tulip petal areas with IMAGINE CRAFTS®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dual Marker in Morocco for added dimension and shading.
Using the word stamp from Magenta®, I stamped it onto the card cover with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Versafine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Habanero.
The card base is 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper sized to 12" wide by 6" tall, and scored in half so the fold is on the left side and the finished card base is a 6" square. Using a scrap of washi paper, I cut it to a 5-3/4" square to frame the stamped card cover, and then adhered both to the base card.
