Learn how to stretch your supplies by turning the Altenew Exotic Tulips Stamp Set into a Rainbow colored mum.
During the release, I created a watercolor stamped card with Exotic Tulips, so this time around I knew I wanted to layer stamp and I wanted to give stamping on Curious Metallic Cryogen White cardstock a try. Other than that I didn’t have a specific design in mind when I started this card.
The video below shows the process and details of how the card was made.
I used 2 shades of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks for each flower, stem, and leaf.
Altenew Crisp Dye Inks
Red – Coral Berry & Frosty Pink
Orange – Orange Cream & Sunkissed
Yellow – Honey Drizzle & Mango Smoothie
Green – Bamboo & Moss
Teal – Volcano Lake & Mountain Mist
Blue – Turquoise & Sea Breeze
Violet – Hydrangea & Wisteria
The stamping came out beautifully on the metallic cardstock. The inks absorbed well without smearing or sitting on the surface. The shimmer is gorgeous and I so wish I was able to capture it in the photos and video!
Once stamping was complete I die cut all the elements and arranged the “mum”. The center panel was die cut with a Honey Bee Stamps Deckle Edge Rectangle Die.
For the background, I ink blended Bamboo Crisp Dye Ink over the A2 sized piece of Curious Metallic Cryogen White and the Altenew Swiss Dot Stencil. I used a light application at the top and more saturated at the bottom to create a gradient effect. You could also use a darker color at the bottom.
I stamped a sentiment from the set with Altenew Permanent Black ink and called it done. Remember to remove the foam pad from your MISTI prior to stamping as the center card panel is popped up on fun foam.
I hope you enjoyed this project today and feel inspired to stretch your supplies by creating a larger flower with your smaller flower stamps. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be creative and Breathe · Ink · Inspire.
