Layered ink, stamps and stencils

These cards were so fun to make with such a perfect stamp set from Penny Black's Fragrant Floral stamps. They reminded me of spring. I also used Penny Black's vine stencil that I have fallen in love with! Then to add all the elements together I used the Penny Black script stamp to make them all work together. I would love to make a set of these as a card set and give them to my son's kindergarten teacher as a thank you gift for being such an amazing teacher to him! (we have the best teachers in Iowa!) Each card was made with the Fragrant floral stamp from Penny Black Heartfelt Thanks, Stamp from Penny Black Vine stencil from PB TH Ink blending tool with these distress inks: TH Wilted violet TH Walnut stain, TH Mustard seed TH worn lipstick TH peeled paint The fun part about these cards is even if I tried to duplicate them they would not come out the same, my process was to stamp the image onto white cardstock and start blending ink onto the stamped image, then I added stenciling and stamping to the background to add texture and lines. I would consider this a 4 "stamped/inked" layered card. My quick tip for these cards is to use ink that works together and won't create mud. Know what inks will work well with each other is really going to be your key to a successful card.For example, I love using peeled paint with walnut stain ink because you get this amazing natural dark green color. Really just blending two colors and playing with different colors will help you find those beautiful colors to make your cards look A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
