One Stamp Event with Oak House Studio

Hello, this weekend is the One Stamp Event from Oak House Studio taking place over Saturday and Sunday. This time the stamp set we are using is the Double Daisy and we are all exploring ways to use the stamp to create with, do pop over to the facebook pages to see the amazing projects, everything from cards, gift wrap and even jewellery have all been created with this versatile stamp set.

I set to work this morning to play with the stamps, inks and embossing powders and have this card to share with you.  I started by stamping one of the large OHS daisy stamps 3 times over a piece of Felt effect cardstock using a versamark embossing inkpad.  I also stanped randomly with the dots texture stamp from the same set, sprinkled with white detail embossing powder and heat set.

Using my largest waterbrush I watercoloured over the stamping using Peacock Green and Paris Pink OHS Colour Chemistry inks, allowing the colours to blend in places to give lilac tones.  The felt texture of the card is very similar to watercolour card and can easily cope with watercolouring.  

Extra detail was added by stamping the dots texture in the lightest blue of the OHS Triple Sky Blues inkpad using a 2nd generation stamping for the background to give a faded look.  I stamped again direct to cntres of the 3 flowers, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and gently heat set to blen in with white embossing.  I also added the texture stamp in blue to the background to add subtle texture.
When dry I then went back in with my waterbrush, this time a smaller one and painted in the petals on each daisy with ink straight from the bottle, 1 in Peacock Green, 1 in Paris Pink and the other in Regal Claret.  When the panel was dry it was trimmed down to approx. 5" square.
The sentiment 'Thinking of you' is also from Oak House Studio and I stamped it in black archival ink onto a scrap of watercoloured card trimmed off the main piece.  Both the daisy panel and the sentiment were matted onto PMD black card.  For the card base another sheet of A4 felt card was scored and folded in half trimming down to create a card of just under 6" square with fold across the top.

I found a sheer black & white polka dot ribbon in my stash and wrapped it around the lower part of the daisy panel, securing ends on reverse with d/s tape before adhering the panel onto my card base.  The sentiment was added on top of the ribbon using 3D foam pads to give height and a little bow from matching ribbon was added to RH side.  To finish I added sequins in pink and teal to the daisy flower centres.
