Hi! I created this card for the Clearsnap April Color Challenge. I was inspired by both the color palette and the design elements in the collage for this card.
Ann Butler ColorBox Crafter's Ink - Blueberry
ColorBox Pigment Ink - Applemint
Teresa Collins Pigment Ink - Passion Pink
Teresa Collins Wood Mount Stamp - Live Today In All Caps
Step 1: Gently apply color from the ink pads listed above onto a craft mat or other slick surface. Mix the ink with a small amount of water and brush small squares of color onto a piece of white cardstock. Dry with a heat gun.
Step 2: Use a black pen to draw an outline around each colored square. Mount the colored paper onto a piece of blue cardstock, then a piece of green cardstock, and finally onto an A2 size blank kraft card.
Step 3: Cut a piece of 3x3-inch white cardstock. Apply Blueberry ink onto the Teresa Collins Live Today In All Caps Wood Mount Stamp and press the sentiment onto the cardstock. Mat the stamped sentiment onto a piece of pink cardstock. Place adhesive foam squares onto the back of the sentiment and attach to the left side of the card front.
Step 4: Color a chipboard fern with Applemint ink and dry with a heat gun. Glue the chipboard fern to the bottom right corner of the card and top with a pink felt flower.
Step 5: Secure a blue felt brad to the card front above the pink flower.
Step 6: Attach two metal jewels to the top right side of the card front.
