For today’s card along the LDRS blog hop, I’m sharing more details on my card today using a technique with perfect pearls and Watermark ink.
The newest set, Love in Bloom, includes layered dies. I personally don’t care for a lot of different inks because I just prefer to color versus stamping out solid images. The only time I run into issues is when there are layered stamps but this is a simple solution to that.
Using LDRS watermark emboss ink, I’m stamping the first solid bloom stamp on colored cardstock. I went with purple so I would end up with purple flowers. Once the watermark ink was on the paper, I would add perfect pearls over it.
Nothing that looks super special, but it will look gorgeous when we finish. For the second layer of the stamp, I’m once again using watermark ink to stamp it and it’ll lift the pearlized stamping up.
For the third layer, I’m using a darker purple ink, Mrs. Periwinkle, and it really creates the three dimensional look for the flowers.
I create three of these flowers and do the same thing for the leaves. The leaves only have two layers, so I only use watermark ink and perfect pearls for the first layer and watermark ink for the second layer on green cardstock.
For the background, I decided I wanted to have something subtle but not distracting because I want the main focus on the flowers I just created. I used the smaller images to stamp a background, use clear embossing powder, and heat emboss.
Once I created the background, I put the card together to create a gorgeous look. I love how the perfect pearls really add shimmer to the flowers and I didn’t need three different inks to create the layered effect.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed the card.
