The How To:
Stamps: SU! Doodle This, Papertrey Ink Paper Tray
Paper: black, white, bashful blue
Other: detail black embossing powder, paint pen, transparency sheet, silver eyelets, black grosgrain ribbon, stickles, paper piercer and template, dimensionals
I stamped my flowers in versamark on the transparency and covered in detail black ep, then repeated the process for the doodles. I've heard this can warp your transparency sheet, but I found it to be pretty minimal. This is where my paint pen comes in.
It's a white Marvy Uchida Extra Fine Opaque paint pen. You can see it here. In my experience, the paint pen does not work on card stock. It's not like a gel pen. The paint pen just sinks into the paper and you can't even see it. But, for transparencies, lovely! I colored all the white areas you see. I was being all careful trying to stay exactly in the lines. No need. I flipped it over to apply some adhesive and realized that this side looks perfect. Lesson learned: color on the back of transparencies. I used a couple dots of Scotch Scrapbooker's Glue which I buy at Target, layered it on bashful blue, then black. I added the eyelets with my cropodile. The "Thank you" is also done in detail black ep. The main image is on dimensionals and I finished it with a bit of piercing, grosgrain ribbon, and star dust stickles.
On another note, I was so happy to see an Honorable Mention for my Papertrey Ink Butterfly Kisses card on Nichole's blog. I've added a link to Papertrey Ink's website to the right. They've now released four stamp sets and each new one sells out more quickly than the last. I LOVE working with their clean, crisp images. Because every part of every image is an individual stamp, they're perfect for any card-making style. Just use as much or as little detail as you'd like. So, I'll post some info on that card tomorrow.
