Transitional Stamping techniques...Bond of love

Hello everyone, this is Hazel.  Today I'm sharing a greeting card for a Sister - one of the most important celebrations!

Sisters are different flowers from the same garden.

I've used the Honey Rose Transitions Layering Stamps on this project, they were perfect to give me the right look - I love how shabby chic this card turned out!

The Transitions stamps are split into various layers and are designed to be inked and overlaid on top of each layer to create depth and dimension through the inked layers - as you stamp the layers it builds up the depth of colour.

Some people shy away from this great stamping method, but all you have to do is follow the guide on the index sheet with the stamps to make sure your stamps are turned the same way each time you pick them up, line them up and you can align them perfectly!  They are actually designed in a way that is very forgiving so it doesnt have to be perfect - and it gives a fabulous Letterpress effect when you're done! 

Inkpads are important for this technique - you really need to use the same colour tones and have inkpads of different shades, but if you just ink with more pressure each time you can certainly achieve the depth without having lots of inks - although using a dye based inkpad is better for that I think as it gets darker the more you add. 

I used a brown kraft greeting card and white card stock and used the vintage text stamp on the background.
The background paper is from Blushing Blooms paper pack - it was a perfect match!

I stencilled using 3D matt modelling paste from Finnabair and using the  DELICIOUS swirls stencil to create some background texture and interest. 
I then created the flowers using the Honey Rose stamp and used Ranger Archival inks for all the layered stamping.

Lastly I used some wax to adorn the card and give it a vintage feel - I hope you like it! 

See you next time!
Hazel
