One Layer Floral Prayers



Hi Friends!

I had a chance to create a card this evening and decided to try a Clean and Simple (CAS) One Layer Card.  I paired the retired Stampin’ Up! Choose Happiness stamp set along with Hero Arts Stamp and Cuts Prayers using masking and watercolor.


If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- as always, gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Score and fold a piece of 4 ¼” x 11” Naturals White cardstock in half.

2). Ink the floral image from Choose Happiness with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.  Create a mask, mask the flower and repeat the steps for additional flowers and leaves.

3). Watercolor the flowers, leaves and background area using Distress Inks- Wild Honey, Broken China, Salted Ocean, Seedless Preserves and Blueprint Sketch.

4). Once the watercolor has dried, de-static the lower part of the card front with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts Prayers Stamp and Cuts using Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.

5). Spritz a bit of diluted Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink over the front and add highlights using an extra fine white paint pen to the flower centers.  Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals and background to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Choose Happiness (Stampin’ Up!), Prayers Stamp and Cuts (Hero Arts)

Ink/Mediums: Versafine™ Onyx Black; Tim Holtz® Distress Inks- Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Salted Ocean, Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey; Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen, Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen
