Summer Rain

This beautiful card by Merja features small flower stamps from our CREATE IT set, with our DRIZZLE stencil and the ‘thank you’ sentiment from our GO TO WORDS set.

[tutorial] Merja applied texture paste through the stencil, and when it was dry added Distress Oxides in ‘squeezed lemonade’ and ‘mowed lawn’ with water and let them dry. Next Merja added Lindy’s Gang ‘blazing sun’ glitz spritz to create some shine.

For the flowers, Merja used Lindy’s ‘hibiscus rose’ spray and ‘yodeling yellow’ magicals powder on watercolour card. When the backgrounds were dry the flowers were stamped onto them using Versafine onyx black ink. The flowers were then cut out, and covered with Glossy Accents then left to dry.

The ‘thank you’ sentiment was stamped with Versafine black ink onto a piece of card coloured with ‘picked raspberry’ Distress Oxide ink, and then die cut into an oval shape. Drops of Glossy Accents were added to give the feeling of rain drops.

Once everything was dry, Merja assembled her card and matted onto black card stock. To finish, some dots were applied to the flower centres with pastel green and pink Pearl Maker pens.
