Creativation 2017- One of a Kind with Ranger Ink

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

Today I have another Creativation show project to share. This time, a soft and shabby floral card I made for the Ranger Ink booth.

I am a sucker for browns and neutrals of all kinds, and tend to gravitate towards these colors often in my designs. Love them mixed with the soft pinks I used here. It’s a great feminine combo, and a good match for this Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamp. Still one of my all-time favorite sets.

The focus of this project was on Distress Inks and Markers, and I tried to feature several techniques using those products here. The flower image was stamped and watercolored with Distress Inks, for a bit of a no-line coloring look. The backgrounds have been ink blended and grunged with Vintage collage medium and touches of glitter. I stamped a light text print with Distress onto the back of the oval die cut, too.

To call some extra attention to the pretty embossed background, I traced areas of the pattern with a dark brown Distress Marker, and then lightly spritzed the area with water to allow the ink to smooth and blend. A fun technique that could be done in so many different colorways, or combination of colors. And a different way to stretch the use of your basic supplies.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Wow!! Absolutely gorgeous in color and the flower is very pretty!! Wonderful texture and layering and love the beautiful pink bow!! Fabulous card, Audrey!!

  2. I love the texture of the background, and especially the detail of the dark embossing. What a time consuming effort, but it looks fantastic! I always love your watercolor projects, and the pink ribbon gives it a feminine touch.
