Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Happy new Waffle Flower Crafts release day! Be sure to stop by the store to see all of the newest goodies! But before you go— don’t miss this super fun ink smooshing card by Channin Pelletier showcasing the super fun new Adventures stamp set. Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!
Hello everyone! It’s Channin here and I am so thrilled to be here at Simon Says Stamp sharing a new card video featuring a brand new stamp set from Waffle Flower Crafts’ August Release. In today’s video, I combine the new Adventures Stamp Set with ink smooshing to create an easy yet beautiful summer tree!
I love the new Adventures Stamp Set! It is so fun to design with because it provides the perfect canvas on which to play with a plethora of fun techniques for creating leaves or landscapes.
First, I stamped a sentiment from the Adventures Stamp Set onto an A2 panel of watercolor paper in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I then created a mask for the sentiment, placed it over the sentiment and stamped the tree image from the Adventures stamp set onto the panel. I then stamped the tree image again onto another A2 panel of watercolor paper.
Next, I extended the tree on the first panel and the first boy’s hand and foot on the second panel with a sharpie. I then ink smooshed with Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, & Lucky Clover) and a small piece of acetate on the first panel to create the look of leaves. I then used a variety of Distress Inks to watercolor the tree trunk and branches on the first panel and the boys on the second.
Once the boys had dried, I fussy cut them out and then added foam tape to the back. I then adhered the ink smooshed panel to an A2 top-folding card base with liquid glue, then removed the backing on the foam tape and added the boys.
I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thanks so much for stopping by!
