Mojo Monday #224... So Very Sorry

I played along with the Mojo Monday sketch #224 today.

You may notice some new CTMH products on my sympathy card.

I used a new paper pack called Pemberley, and I have to say, it's so pretty.

The stamp set is also new and it's called Card Word Puzzle.

{The new CTMH items will be available for order on February 1st.}

How I did the flower (and leaves):
  • I inked my flower stamp up first in Versamark ink, then into my Outdoor Denim ink, and then I stamped that onto the Creme Brulee floral B&T.
  • I sprinkled Clear Detail embossing powder over top, tapped off the excess, and then heat set the image.  (The reason I do that is so my ink doesn't run in the next step.)
  • Then I took my Creme Brulee ink and a water brush and basically painted with my water brush.  (I like to squeeze my lid down when the ink pad is closed, and then pick up the ink from the open lid with my water brush.)
  • I basically did the same steps with my leaves, except I stamped them onto Garden Green cardstock, and used Olive ink to paint with.

Until next time, happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Pemberley B&Ts; Colonial White, Kraft, Garden Green, Outdoor Denim CS
Stamp:  Card Word Puzzle
Inks:  Outdoor Denim, Olive, Creme Brulee, Desert Sand, Versamark
Embellishments:  Colonial White grosgrain, Adhesive pearls
Other:  Clear Detail embossing powder, 3D foam tape, Micro-tip scissors, 2 1/2" scallop circle punch (Marvy Uchida)

I never knew you could double up on the ink like that, what a neat idea! And I love the way the waterbrush step add so much dimension to your flower. Really nice job.
