Today is the first day that Inspired By Stamping's June Release stamp sets are showcased by the designers! How exciting!
My card showcases the Big Congrats stamp set which contains the large-font word "Congratulations" along with 5 events to be congratulated, in this case my daughter's new job. (Woohoo! And it's a good one, too!)
I've also used two other IBS stamps sets including Delicate Doilies and last month's new release Background Basics III. I used the French script on this set to stamp the base layer of the card. I then dry brushed white acrylic paint and a bit of ivory shimmer paint over it with a fan brush to tone that vivid pink down just a bit.
Here is a different view of the doilies. I stamped them using shimmer paints which I sponged on in different colors so they'd blend a bit. Then I sponged distress ink over them and wiped the ink off of the doily areas.
These flowers started out white but I colored them using alcohol inks and rubbing alcohol. The roses are from the IBS store...
...as is the silky soft seam binding. It, too, started out white, but I sprayed with it some of my homemade sprays in pink and blue.
Thank you for joining me today, and stay tuned for more IBS goodness to come! In the meantime, please pay a visit to the other designers who are showcasing this and the Summer Postcards stamp sets.
