Love Grows Here Slim Line Card
Today I have a slim line card today featuring the Stencil of the Month (Vintage Tile) and a variety of stamps from both the Stamp of the Month (Love Grows Here) and the Inspiration Box (Bountiful Blooms) for April.
I started by using a slim line precut panel and place it on my Stick and Stamp mat. I turned the Stencil of the month on the diagonal over my panel. I used some post-it note tape to cover the corners of my panel to keep them clean while I blended. Using some blending brushes and some Simon Hurley Inks for my design, I used each color about a third of the way across the stencil. I started blending at the top with Shooting Star ink. In the middle, I used Traffic Cone and ended with Bee Sting, overlapping the inks slightly for a transition. To remove my panel from the Stick and Stamp mat, I carefully roll the edges of my mat (gently) until the panel "pops" off. Then I used my Stick and Stamp Mat Mist Cleaner to wipe off an ink.
I then took another piece of the precut slimline panels and blended the same three inks along the edges to create a mat layer that matched my stencil. I cut the stenciled piece down slightly to about 3" and placed it on my mat, which was cut to about 3.25" I then used tape runner to attach it to my Precut Slimline card base.
For my images I use some of the images from Bountiful Blooms and Love Grows Here and stamped them on Perfect Blend Alcohol Paper with Raven Detail ink. I colored in my images with a variety of Copic markers and then cut them out with my Scan and cut.
I arranged the images to on the bottom right of my panel and attached them with liquid glue. To finish my card, I used the sentiment from the April Stamp of the Month, and adhered it right above my stamped and colored images. (The stamp+ club is the the stamp of the month and coordinating die which you can find here.)
