2/29 Just One Flower Stamp

In March, I am having a Christian Inspiration Class and this is one of the five card designs we will be making. I used direct to paper with black craft ink on the Wild Wasabi card stock. I believe that Easter is about coming out of the darkness, so I attempted to show this with a black card base bleeding outward into the Wild Wasabi. That easing of the darkness culminates in a bright white center with tulips to represent Easter morning.

This card also fits the challenge at SCS which was to use just one flower stamp on your card. A sentiment was optional. And with a limited supply challenge . . . the challenge was to not use background stamps, designer paper, or Cuttlebug embossed backgrounds. Limited Supply Challenges are fun for me because they usually take me back to the basics of stamping . . . back when I didn't have a room overflowing with options. It also helps me relate to my newest customers who are looking to create beautiful cards with just the basics - stamps, paper and ink!
Here is a link to the Limited Supply Challenge for today.

Supplies I used to make this card:

Stamps: Never Ending Joy
Paper: Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Regal Rose
Accessories: Foam Tape, Black Brads, Tag Corner Punch, Positioner, Real Red Marker, Basic Black Marker

Tips for Making this Card: DTP (direct to paper) is achieved by lightly dragging your ink pad across your card stock. I used craft ink, but any kind of ink can be used. You can create depth with your tulips by inking them first in Regal Rose and then edging the sides and bottoms with a red marker. The sentiment was makered in Basic Black one word at a time. I used the positioner to get it just right across the bottom of the card.
