This is the tutorial for the Wild Meadow Card. It is a card that is similar to the previous Wild Meadow Card. I made them toghether to save some time.
Needed: White Cardstock, Plastic Sheet, Distress Ink, Make Up Sponge
Ink up the plastic Sheet with the Distress Ink.
Rub in the sponge with ink in circles. The Distress Inks are water based. When the card is finished clean up with wadded damp kitchen roll and dry off.
With the sponge ink into the edges of the paper and than work your way down the paper.
This gives a soft, feathery look. Add more ink if you want it to be darker. Just have a play until you get the look you that you want.
It is a waterbased ink, so it will blend more when it dries.
Dry the card with a heat tool to fasten up the drying process
For the background image I used the IndigoBlu Wild Meadow stamp set. Ink the stamp with the matching Distress Ink.
Stamp the image with the Matching Distressed Ink and you can see that there is enough of a tonal difference for the image to stand out from the background.
The dandelion is from the same set as the background stamp: IndigoBlu Wild Meadow. Ink the flower stamp with clear embossing ink.
Stamp the image along the right side of the card toward the middle. The embossing ink dries slowly.
Sprinkle richly white embossing powder onto your project. Remove the powder by tapping on the back of the card and put it back in the jar.
Here you can see that the powder will only stick to the stamped embossing ink.
Heatset your project with the heat gun so that the embossing powder melts.
To place the text stamp on the right position, use a stamp positioner.
Place the stamp positioner over the corner of a piece of tracing plastic. Fit the corner neatly into the right angled corner of the stamp positioner. Stamp the image onto the tracing paper.
Remove the stamp. You will now see the stamp image on the corner of the tracing plastic.
Move the image on the tracing plastic so that it sits exactly where you want it to be on the craft project.
Place the stamp positioner exactly in place on the tracing plastic, so that the corner of the tracing plasticis sitting in the right angled corner of the stamp positioner. Gently slide the tracing plastic out from under the stamp positioner. Take care not to remove the exact positioning of the stamp positioner. Place the stamp in the right angled corner of the stamp and stamp. The image that it produces should be exactly in place where you want it on the project medium.
To distress the card I use a specialist tool
such as a paper distresser. This will rough up the
edges of the card you are using, to create a simple
but effective worn edge effect.
Stick the card to a white rectangular cardstock. You can add some embellishments or leave the card as it is.
