Chalkboard with Stamped Floral Wreath

I love trying new techniques and this one was introduced to me by Jennifer McGuire.

On kraft cardstock, I stamped the floral wreath with white pigment ink. Then I stamped over the white images with dye ink. Then I combined that technique with another from Jennifer, to add another colour of ink over the original stamping, to accent each flower and leaf. After stamping the first time with coloured ink, you ink up your stamp with the accent (darker or brighter)colour then remove some ink with a cloth. In this case, I removed about half the ink leaving the center inked. Then stamp over your original stamping, carefully lining everything up. That leaves the centers a bit brighter/darker.

I added the sentiment with black EP and carefully trimmed around it. I added a few little random dots to make the wreath look more filled in and added it to a simple card.

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
