Ai Lily Border

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I am sharing my card creation for Art Impressions Border Challenge. For more details on this challenge check out the announcement here. My project features the new WC Lily Border stamp set which is a really fun image to color! Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the rules for the Border Challenge. I also created an card assembly video that is at the end of this blog post so make sure to check that out too! This project is featured on the Ai blog today, check it out here!
I wanted to make a simple card where the main focus was the stamped WC Lily Border image. So I first stamped the image onto the white card base using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the image again onto some Masking Magic paper to create a mask to place over the image for ink blending. I used my Copic Sketch alcohol markers to color the floral image. I used RV29, RV21, RV11, and RV000 for the pink areas, I used C2, and C4 for the white shadows, and I used YG61, YG63, and YG67 for the greenery. I stamped the stamens in the center of the flowers once I finished my coloring.  

Next, I placed the lily border mask on top of the colored image to protect it from the ink I used to make a textured background behind the floral image. I used the Comic Dots stencil from Kindred Stamps and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to blend the small circles in the background. After I finished ink blending I peeled the lily mask off of the card base. The Gina K. Designs Masking Magic paper is awesome to use because you can re-use the mask multiple times!

To finish the card I stamped the sentiment "Friendship Blooms from the Heart" from the WC Sentiments stamp set with Versafine pigment black ink. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Check back next week for more Art Impressions inspiration!
