This week Wendy has set the Tanda Teaser and she has chosen 'Riot of Petals' as her theme. Just perfect timing as I had to make my mother-in-law's birthday card last night. Her favourite flowers are pansies so my personal challenge was to use the same PSX stamp to make a card that was different to all the previous ones using the same stamp!
While I was doing the messy inky part I remembered reading on Zoe's blog that the Tuesday Taggers wanted to see our messy fingers this week so I grabbed my camera in one hand and photographed the other...have to say I usually get messier than this, and the kitchen counter was nowhere near as chaotic as it usually gets!
To make the card I selectively inked the pansy flowers/leaves with Marvey pens, stamped them onto watercolour paper, and then used a damp brush to fill the petals with colour. I cut the leaves and flowers out and arranged them in two panels on my card. The sentiment, Lost Coast Designs, was stamped using the same pen as the flowers.
Just as an afterthought I've just included pics here of other cards made using the same stamp in the past..it just goes to show how many different cards can be made using the same stamp when chosen wisely.
The first two use the same technique as the card above, the last one is actually some pressed pansies from my garden, but the background was done using the whole stamp and the watermark technique with versamark.
