I was lucky enough to use Sweet Memories Quilt Texture Plate! And here is what I came up with....
Supplies: Sweet Memories Quilt Stamp - Purple Faerie; Archival Inks - Ranger; Cardstock - Bazzill & Club Scrap; Fontwerks Stitches Stamps; Vellum - unknown.
The quilt it's self was stamped using several different shades of ink. I also stamped one quilt in black ink which served as my base. I then cut out sections from each quilt and pieced it onto the black base quilt. It took a while but I think it was worth it in the end... The sentiment reads - "Blankets wrap you in warmth... Quilts wrap you in love..."
Supplies: Sweet Memories Quilt Stamp - Purple Faerie; Archival Ink - Ranger; Distress Inks - Ranger; Watercolor Pencils - Staedtler; Flower & Bird stamps - Inkadinkado; Cloths Pins - Darcie; Mulberry Paper, Jute - Unknown
This is my favorite of the 2 cards I made...probably one of favorite cards I've ever made!! I just LOVE how this turned out ~ exactly like I imagined it would (don't you love it when that happens!!). I stamped the quilt onto white mulberry paper. I then colored in each of the little squares with a watercolor pencil & waterbrush. Once it was dry I carefully edged it with black sharpie and cut it out. I mounted it onto blue mulberry paper and pulled it apart (for the frayed edges).
NOW...I have to thank Karen for the background inspiration! She recently got into landscape stamping and oh my...the goodies she's made!!! While I don't have any "official" background stamps I thought I might be able to do something close to what she does. The sky & ground are watercolor Distress Ink (reinker) that I "painted" onto some watercolor paper. I then stamped a weed repeatedly and added flowers again using various shades of Distress Inks.
When it was all dry I strung my cloths line and hung the quilt out to dry! You can't see it in the photo but the quilt looks like it's flapping in the breeze because I used Pop-Dots and other double sided tape with different thicknesses to give the quilt a rippling effect! It's way cool when you see it IRL.
