I'm thrilled to join my fellow Artists-in-Residence for IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® as we join up with the Design Team for Avery Elle's Blog Hop. It was fun to discover Avery Elle’s Birch Wood Grain Card Stock, along with Avery Elle’s photopolymer clear stamp set, Petals & Stems.
Using the Spectrum Noir alcohol ink pen in the lightest of the Cool Greys set, I colored a swatch of the white Avery Elle Wood Grain Card Stock to bring out the grain texture. Using the large and smaller matching blossom images from the Avery Elle Petals & Stems stamp set, I inked those with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Dye Ink in Lady Bug and Love Letter, and embossed with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Embossing Powder in Clear on the die-cut card stock. I then took 2 pens from the Spectrum Noir alcohol Pinks pen set and colored over the stamped images, blending the colors to avoid a defined line where the colors change. I also used a Sakura® Glaze Pen in black for the centers of the flowers.
