IO Challenge- Fanciful Florals


Who doesn't love floral cards?  They seem to work for every occasion.  For my card today, I decided to make a clear acetate card.  I stamped the Three Windows stamp (G2175) onto an acetate card from Hero  Arts using Black Staz On ink.  Once the ink dried, I colored the inside of the acetate card with an assortment of Copic markers.  I blended the "sky" areas with some Copic Blending Solution in a waterbrush so that it gave the card a bit more of a watercolored look.  Important....you have to stamp on one side of the acetate and color on the other side or your marker will take the Staz On ink right off of the card.

Next, I added a white piece of cardstock behind the acetate so that you could actually see the coloring.  I added a saying from the same cling sentiment set I used earlier this week on the cactus card.  It  is  called Everyday Quotes 2 (3153-XL) and it includes lots of great sayings.

Here is a close up of the coloring:



Off topic....for those of you who asked about my last card with the Distress Crayons and white ink on black cardstock, the white ink I used was the Unicorn white by Hero Arts.  Sorry I didn't include that information in my last post!
