Something Different

It's Monday, and a Bank Holiday one in the UK too - it's also my day here on the DT blog, and today I have a spritzed, inked, coloured and stamped card.....

Products Used From Clare Curd Crafts;
 SMASH by K and Co - Black Dots Tape
Crafty Impressions - Id like to say but - by Kirsty Wiseman clear A6 Stamps
IndigoBlu - Blazing Poppies
Dylusions Fresh Lime Ink Spray
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Fired Brick
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Stormy Sky

Now here's the hard part explaining how I created this lol
1. To start off with, I stamped the Blazing Poppies along the right hand side of the card, I took the design slightly off the page.
2. I then stamped the Poppies again on to a piece of scrap paper,  then cut out the flower heads to create a mask over the main stamped image.
3. I picked up some Distress ink/Stormy Sky and coloured around the image.
4. I spritzed some Dylusions over the card, randomly - then took a piece of paper towel to mop excess and dry off the ink.
5. I took the mask off the flowers and coloured them using the Distress ink/ Fired Brick (with a paint brush and a little water).
6. I then stamped the wording "Live Laugh Love", which come from the Rachel Grieg stamp set.
7. Next I stamped a number stamp which comes from the Paula Pascual set. I find this an invaluable stamp that fits in with nearly everything I do at the moment.
8. I then stamped the quote from the Kirsty Wiseman stamp set.
9. Stamp the poppies stamp again on to some stamping paper, cut out and colour a couple of the poppy heads and add to the card, as shown.
10. I cut a couple of bits of dotty tape by K and Co and placed them on the sides of the card, as shown.
11. Finally, I added a few rub ons from my own stash, as well as highlighting areas on the poppies stamp with marker pens.

If my write up is unclear or you need more info, please don't hesitate to contact me and I shall try to help.

Love the way you've mixed all the text and numbers from different manufacturers.

OMG, this is totally amazing! That IB stamp is so lovely and the way you have used it together with all the other elements looks fantastic! This must be one of my all time favourite cards of yours! You always dare to combine colours in such unusual ways, but it always looks brill!Perfect composition and balance yet again, I just love looking at it!!

I have to agree with so many of Astrid's comments, the way you have combined such diverse stamp designs to make somthing that is just your own is amazing. It is nice to get a step by step guide too. You are one clever girl! Elaine xxx

This is a wonderful card - great use of colours. I have a few of Paula's sets and I find them so useful for cardmaking.

Great vibrant card with lots of interest but no confusion (which is what would happen if I attempted this!).
