It seems I got a bit turned around on our challenge at 613 Avenue Create this week. I didn't create an ATG; I created a card. Oops! But I did use a rubber stamp, which is the option. A few months ago, I won some blog candy from Stampendous: 10 sheets of beautiful Graphics 45 double sided paper and two rubber stamps! Needless to say, I was delighted. So for this challenge, I was more than happy to use the Cyclamen Cling Stamp.
After using my MISTI and my new Creative Corners to stamp off the edge of the panel, I used a total new to me technique - loose water coloring. I smooshed Distress Inks on my kraft sheet, spritzed the ink with water and went to work. I am really happy with how it turned out. I even managed a bit of shading. After the flowers were dry, I painted the background. I stamped the sentiment and added some Nuvo Drops.Then I cut the panel down a bit, mounted it on black card stock and glued it to the card base.
