Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Promenade for the Happy Inking Thursday and Happy Stampers Combined Blog Hop

We’re joining forces with Sandi MacIver’s Happy Stampers for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop again this week!  I pulled out the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Promenade stamp set and the Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies to create my project.

On our combined weeks, we will have a sketch challenge and a color challenge that we can choose to use individually or together!  I used both the sketch and the colors for my card share this week.  Here is the sketch for this week:

And here are the colors:

I started by stamping the flower and leaf images from the Beautiful Promenade photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of watercolor paper.  I sprinkled the images with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then used an Aqua Painter to add Fresh Fig, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay inks to the images.

Once the image had dried, I inked the lined flower image from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Fresh Fig ink, stamped it on scrap paper once and then stamped it over the embossed flowers.  I wiped away the excess ink with a paper towel and then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Whisper White card stock with one of the Delicate Lace Edgelits Dies, snipped of the excess and then adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to to a Fresh Fig card stock.  I adhered the watercolor panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the top of the card and tied a bow.

I cut a panel of Champagne Foil Sheets with one of the Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies and I adhered the die cut sentiment to the watercolor panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added one of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the flower images from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set in Fresh Fig and Pear Pizzazz inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock on the inside of the card.  The lined image was stamped off once before stamping it on the panel.
