Anemone Floral Background with Channin

Hello all!! It's Channin here and today I have a layered floral card to share!! This card also combines my two absolute favorite MISTI stamping techniques pattern stamping and partial inking!!

To create this card I first stamped the background with Anemone Stamp Set from The Stamp Market. I first positioned the outline layer for the three flowers on the left half of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then picked up the stamps with my MISTI and then stamped them in Versafine Onyx Black. Next, with stamps unmoved and still on my MISTI, I then rotated my card base 180 degrees and stamped the other half of my panel in Versafine Onyx Black as well. With both halves stamped, I then moved onto the next layer for the flowers, the solid layer. 

I first positioned them, picked them up with my MISTI and then stamped them in either Sparkling Rose, Lemon Whip, or Soft Lilac Pinkfresh Studio Ink. Then with the solid layer stamps unmoved in my MISTI, I then partially inked up each flower in a slightly darker shade (Bubble Gum, Sweet Mustard, or Candy Violet) and stamped to create a gradation. To partially ink up a stamp, you hold the ink pad at an angle so only a portion of the ink pad comes in contact with the stamp. I like to partially ink up the edge of the stamp, meaning the ink pad makes the most contact with the edge and then lessens towards the center, and again this is done by simply holding your ink pad at an angle. Once I finished partial inking and stamp the solid layer, I then rotated my panel and then repeated the process for the other half of the card. 

When I was finished stamping the solid layer on both halves I then positioned the detail layer and then stamped them in either Raspberry Bliss, Marigold, or Regal Kiss. Next, I rotated my card base and repeated the process for the other half. I then finished the flowers by stamping the centers first in Clementine and the partially in Persimmon. Once I had finished stamping the centers for all the flowers I then moved onto the leaves with Grassy Knoll and Olive. When I had finished all the leaves I filled in the negative space with by adding little dots with a copic marker (G43). Next I created my sentiment by stamping “thanks” from the Fabulous Floral stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black on white cardstock. I then die cut it out with the matching die and adhered it to my card front with foam tape. 

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
