Craft Stamper blog challenge

A new 'Take It Make It' blog challenge has started today on the Craft Stamper magazine blog. The theme for April's challenge is Bottles.

This is my DT card for the challenge. The stamp set I used for the flowers and sentiment is Floral Sketch from Hobby Art. The chipboard jar is from The Artistic Stamper.

To make this card I stamped by stamping the flowers onto thick white card. I used Mustard Seed, Aged Mahoney, Barn Door, Fired Brick and Tattered Rose Distress Ink pads. I also used the same inks pads to colour-in the flowers. To do this I stamped the ink pads onto an acrylic block and added a little water. I then used the ink as a paint. I then cut out each flower.

I coloured a chipboard jar with Frayed Burlap Distress Paint. I added a darker edge with Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain Distress ink pad. Once dry I added some details with a pencil. The chipboard jar is from The Artistic Stamper. I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Sketch stamp set onto white card. I cut out the sentiment into a tag shape. I added the tag to the jar with red ribbon.

I attached a torn-edge panel of white card to a DL kraft card blank. I added black dots around the edge with a fineliner. I added the jar to the card. I used a Forest Moss Distress marker to draw in the flower stems. I added the flowers with foam pads. To finish I added brown Cosmic Shimmer PVA to the centre of the flowers.
