This gorgeous layout was created by the Close To My Heart Art Department. I love how they took this month's Stamp of the Month and used several techniques all on one layout.
You can see on the flowers that are cut out they used the rolling technique. I shared simple instructions for that here.
I also love the technique they used on the background flowers (that are stamped directly on the page) poking out behind the layered flowers. I'm pretty sure they used a sponge dauber to apply the ink to the stamp and then lightly misted the inked stamp with water before stamping that onto the page. Isn't it soft and beautiful?
Not only is this a top-notch company with great products, but it's a company that is full of amazing artists. How about this card that was also made by the CTMH Art Department? WOWZA, right? On this one they stamped the flower in Whisper Ink onto Whisper Cardstock and then used our Shin Han Markers to color on top of the stamped image to add all of the beautifully blended color. I also love how on both pieces of art, they used the chicken wire background stamp from the Stamp of the Month to add very subtle detail and texture.
September is almost over and with it goes the September Stamp of the Month. Don't miss it! It's yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you order (before shipping and tax). Order $100, get 2 (one for you and one for a friend!)...and so on. When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.
