I fell in love with this Bloom with Grace stamp set by Altenew a while ago but somehow it kept getting set to the side while I worked on something else… the bonus to that is that when I needed a quick card this week I had a few ideas in mind already! I splurged & got the coordinating dies (something I rarely do!) and it definitely helped me put this card together easily!
I stamped & colored the larger image in the set with Distress Watercolor Pencil Crayons, then cut it with the coordinating die. I stamped a sentiment on a strip of green cardstock and then did some quick Distress Oxide Ink blending on a Kraft card stock base. I kept the color heavier (freshly inked up) in the middle and faded it out toward the edges of the card.
I finished it off by splattering a bit of water over the ink, then added a few splatters of white spray (like this one). A few vanilla sequins and a bit of thin twine finished it all off for me!
Hope you like how it all came together, I think I’ll make something similar with the smaller stamp and try out a few more ideas… watch for that on Instagram later this week!
