At one point, I smooshed my background onto the surface of my Easy Clean Mat and then picked up the ink on the surface with a second piece of Yupo paper. This applied a more diluted version of the inks and I was able to get paler, more muted colors than the original background. I’ll have to remember this technique in the future when I want softer colors!
I but the large sheets of Yupo paper in half and created two cards. For the first card, I used Alcohol Lift Ink to stamp the floral images from the card kit stamp set, Delicate Flowers (also available for purchase outside of the kit). I stamped them multiple times and wiped away the Lift Ink each time in order to reveal a “ghost like” stamping effect.
I finished that card off with a greeting from the stamp set white heat embossed on back card stock.
For my second card, I wanted to add the flowers from the Delicate Flowers stamp set, but this time I wanted the flowers popped up off the surface. So I stamped them and colored them with Copic markers.
The stamp set doesn’t have coordinating dies currently, so I hand cut the flowers out. I finished the card by adhering a white heat embossed sentiment to the bottom corner and then used foam tape to adhere the flowers.
