Hey paper crafting friends, welcome back. Today I have Wild Daisies Color Blocking Technique to share with you.
I have been circling back around to some cardmaking techniques I have enjoyed in the past and color blocking came to mind. I decided to do a little masking and create the stripes using my Distress Oxide Inks for the blending
The beautiful Wild Daisies outline stamp from Picket Fence Studios was perfect for this application with it’s big bold image.
How to create the Wild Daisies Color Blocking Technique
Start by masking off the left side of the card front with Post It Tape. I prefer this tape as it doesn’t leave any residue.
TIP – I work on grid paper to keep my lines straight.
Next use a blending brush to add Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink along the exposed edge of the card.
Remove the tape and heat dry the ink.
Finally, repeat across the the left side of the card front making the stripes different widths for added interest. Remember to add a strip of tape over the ink you just blended to protect it.
TIP – if you are using the same piece of Post It Tape, rub off the excess ink with a paper towel before moving on to the next color.
Completing the Card:
Trim the card front to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 and place it into your Misti Stamping Tool.
Use the Black Hybrid Ink to stamp the Wild Daisies stamp image over the front of the card.
Once the ink is dry, attach it to a top folding A2 white card base.
Stamp a sentiment in black on a white piece of scrap paper and trim before attaching with foam squares to the bottom left corner over the color blocking so it really pops.
Clean the stamp with the stamp scrubber.
I decided not to embellish this card. With the bold stripes and the detailed stamped image there was plenty going on
The Color Blocking Technique is a fast and fun way to add a bunch of color to your cards without having to do detailed coloring. It’s also quick and easy so if you are strapped for time, this technique will work for you.
Picket Fence Studios also has a variety of large image floral stamps perfect for this technique
