Botanical Script Cards

Darkroom Door - Sunday, February 11, 2018

Hi, I'm Heather Telford and I am happy to be sharing here on the Darkroom Door blog today. I have chosen one of the floral stamps from the new Botanical Script Rubber Stamp Set and coloured it in a couple of different ways. 

1.Stamp flower from Botanical Script set on hot pressed watercolour paper in vintage photo ink. With a small damp watercolour paint brush blend the ink from the outline of the petals into each petal one at a time. 
2 .Press some abandoned coral distress ink on your craft mat. While each petal is wet pick up some abandoned coral ink and drop it into the petal. Blend and with brush and add extra ink in the areas you want darker. Dry petals.
3. Paint the centre of the flower with water to intensify the vintage photo ink. When dry paint the middle with black soot ink.
4. Paint over the leaves and lace with water to intensify the colour.
5. Mat panel with co-ordinating brown cardstock and wrap some linen thread around panel.
6. Attach finished panel to a natural coloured card base.

We have already been employing ADT Home Security over the past 6 years and knew I had been paying much too much. Presently there are many incredibly good alarm monitoring options you can get which can be simply 1 / 2 the price for the matching level of support. Really worth checking out to save some dough most definitely considering the fact that a few do not demand any agreement which the big dealers require. Pity. Has any one used for security alarm monitoring to date? The pricing appears sensible but typically interested in other peoples feed back before trying anyone brand new.
