Just for Marica...

Hi, Marcia asked me to post a card I made that she CASED last week on her blog here. I made 2 of them, and just put different sentiments at the bottom.

I used Rubbernecker's 4 Poppies stamp and inked them up with Barn Door, Rusty Hinge and Crushed Olive Distress Ink Markers, then spritzed them with water before stamping them on TH's Watercolor paper.  I did take a water pen and filled in the color and added some dimension to the flowers.  After the flowers dried, I came back with TH's Black Soot Distress Marker and filled in the center of the poppies.  Again, using just a bit of water, I blended the black in.  When everything was dried, I used the blending tool and blended in Tumbled Glass, Crushed Olive and Spun Sugar distress inks.  I used Hero Arts Old Letter Writing stamp and inked it up with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy, stamped off one time, wiped the ink off from the center and stamped top half of card.  I inked it up again, stamped off once, wiped off the center and bottom left of the stamp before stamping it on the bottom half of the card.  Both sentiments are from Penny Black's Eloquence stamp set, which I inked up with VersaMark and embossed with black embossing powder.  I finished off the card with some splatters of Pearl Ex, water downed black ink and some black bakers twine.  I mounted the card to black card stock and some old rust colored card stock.  I just don't remember where the card stock is from or its exact color.
