FS536, EH Mix it Up - Thank You

This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Donna3d! I chose this card as my inspiration:

I am also linking up to Ellen Hutson's Mix it Up Challenge with Reverse Confetti.

I focused on Donna's:
-floral theme
-'splattered' look
-grey card base

I changed:
-technique (Donna stamped on wet paper, I 'ink smooshed')
-added die cut
-more colours

When working with more than one stamp set, choose stamps with a similar line weight to create a cohesive design. The handwritten sentiment works well with the scribbly flower.

I started with a 4.25x4.25 inch square panel and stamped the sentiment and flowers. Then I started my ink-smooshing.

When it was all dry, I cut out a folk heart and removed it and then cut a 4x4 square from the remainder. This allows the heart to extend of the edge of the square panel a little bit.

I laid the heart back into the panel and popped it up with foam tape.

I used:

Wonderful colourful and crisp and clean card - love the heart, and thanks for the tip to cut the background after removing the heart. The video is great too, love how you use acetate for your smooshing.

Oh wow!
The Virgo in me totally loves this.
Inky smooshing, but still with gorgeous colour and fresh, clean lines

Great controlled smooshing, Ardyth, and I love the heart hanging off the side a bit.

Lisa Lara said...

So beautiful and fun Ardyth. Love your color and how you used the heart die!

Stunning! I really need to try this technique for watercolouring. Thanks for the video.

Fabulous job mixing and matching the images! Had you not mentioned it, I would have assumed they were all from the same set! Really love the whimsical look you created!
