I started with a card base of Stamp School Poptone Red Hot paper. Next, I used a piece of Sweet Tooth cut to 4 x 5 1/4 so you can still see a bit of the Red Hot behind it once it’s all put together. On the Sweet Tooth paper, I used my Ink Blending Tool, and various Distress Ink pads to create the colors of the background. I just added some colors and blended until I was happy with it. Next, I added the Paper Smooches cloud background with Stamp School Black Licorice ink. Last, I sprayed some Perfect Pearls Mist over my entire card front. Because the Black Licorice is a dye ink, it does some cool things once the Perfect Pearls is sprayed on it. Do you notice on the purple section of the background that the clouds are very faint? Cool huh!
Next, I stamped one of the main floral images in Sour Apple ink and the flowers in Red Hot. The cool thing about this stamp set, is it allows you to stamp your greenery for the flowers in a green and the flowers themselves in another color. I stamped this on Sweet Tooth and then inked it with a Distress ink again because it was just too stark white. Then I fussy cut around the flower image.
I diecut some Sweet Tooth and inked around the edges, and stamped my sentiment in Black Licorice.
While putting my card together, I wanted to make a border under everything, so I put a layer of Hambly Washi tape first, then layered a red grossgrain ribbon over that.
