Wood bricks technique for a floral card
Posted on February 15 2022
Galina with you and today I want to share with you a fun way of using large backgrounds stamps like - Wood Grain 6x6 Stamp. I used it with 1/2" A2 Background Strips Dies to create a background for a beautiful flowers from Joyful Blooms 4x6 Stamps.
Usually I stamp with the acrylic blocks, but I don't have huge blocks for 6x6 stamps. So, I make an inverse stamping with background stamps. I remove the acetate sheet only from the back of the stamp and place it on the table. I cover the stamp with a cardstock and press with a small acrylic block or with hands.
I stamped the wood background with a dark brown ink in a piece of kraft cardstock.
This pattern looks amazing and so realistic. For sure you can use it as is. I decided to create a kind of wood brick, to add more dimension to my card.
I cut out large stripes using 1/2" A2 Background Strips Dies and foam mount them on the A2 kraft color card panel. Also I added a bit of dark brown ink on the edges.
I stamped flowers from Joyful Blooms 4x6 Stamps. with dark brown ink and colored them with inks and coordinating stencis. I cut out the flowers with a Joyful Blooms Coordinating Dies.
