Flower Boy Collage Cards

Darkroom Door - Sunday, April 07, 2019

Hello wonderful people! Teresa Abajo here with a couple of cards I made using the new Flower Boy Collage Stamp.

The image of the boy in the foreground over the interesting background gave me the idea of making a shaker card:

1. Stamp the Flower Boy image twice onto cream cardstock using a waterproof ink.
2. Use Distress Inks and a waterbrush to colour the images.
3. Fussy cut the boy and flowers from one of the coloured images inside the frame. Adhere acetate to the back of this and put foam mounting tape on the back making a complete 'fence' without any holes where the shaker components can leak out.
4. With this image face down, place the shaker components in the space created by the foam mounting tape fence, taking care not to overfill.
5. Remove the release paper from the foam mounting tape and place the other coloured image down, lining up the stamped images as best you can.
6. Tie some twine around the card front and add a stamped tag with a Happy Birthday sentiment.
7. Adhere this card front to a folded cream card.

1. Stamp the Flower Boy image onto kraft cardstock using black ink. Stamp again onto some old book page.
2. Tear a strip of the old book page (include the boy's face in this) and adhere it to the kraft piece taking care to match up the image.
3. Apply small amounts of PVA glue to the area with the flowers and sprinkle with Flower Soft. Allow to dry.
4. Stamp the Plaid Background stamp onto cream cardstock using brown ink. Trim to 10 x 14.3 cm and adhere to a folded cream card.
5. Cut a piece of coordinating patterned paper to 9 x 13.3 cm and adhere to card front. Adhere the stamped kraft piece over this.
6. Adhere scraps of lace and ric rac to the card front. Stamp the sentiment from the All Occasions stamp set in brown ink onto some cream cardstock. Trim to size and adhere to card front with foam mounting tape.
