Hi there crafters! How are things where you are? I can't believe it's almost the end of August! This year has flown by. In today's Stylish Cardmaking Techniques, I will show you how I combined two stamps to create flowers in a glass vase.
How to Create Flowers In a Glass Vase
My card features the Versatile Vases 2 Stamp Set and combines it with the Build-A-Garden: Nature's Magic Stamp Set to trap the florals inside the vase.
Using the Versatile Vases 2 Mask Stencil Set, it's possible to mask the outline of the vase and only stamp inside the edges of the vase itself. I used Permanent Black Ink for the floral, which won't smear when using Artist Markers.
My florals were colored with the Set D of Artist Alcohol Markers (Rock Garden). I then added back the stencil and blended pale Polar Bear Crisp Dye Ink in from the sides to give some definition. I also added some Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray to give it a glassy look.
I heat embossed the sentiment underneath the vase using Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.
For a little something extra, you can get a fun ‘faux glass' look using a glossy accent – I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze all over the vase and left it to dry overnight, and then et voila! A real glass look!
The finishing touch was some Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray to finish. Here's a close-up look at that glass!
