Retro Roses Card Tutorial – Oak House Studio Stamps


Hi Everyone

MJ here once again.  Today I wanted to share another little stamping project I made for Oak House Studio’s recent shows on Hochanda.  I hope you caught them Lynnda was great.

Here is an easy card for you and I hop you like it.

What MJ Did

  1. Take a 6” x 6” square of watercolour card and a 6” x 2” strip too.
  2. Next I used Bottled Sunshine, Watermelon and Jubilee Red, an ink blending tool and a spritzer bottle with water in it.
  3. Start by spritzing the card with a little water.  Then I added some bottled sunshine in 3 areas of the square and then added some watermelon.  I blended them together with my foam until I was happy with the result. Repeat for the strip.
  4. Next  I chose 3 stencils (a mix of Andy Skinner’s and Finnabair stencils).  I inked through the stencils with Jubilee Red ink using the ink blending tool.
  5. Using the rose stamp I put a little of the Brazil Nut ink onto a piece of cut and dry foam and used that to ink the stamp.  Stamp randomly around the pieces.
  6. Take the circle cluster stamp and ink with Versamark ink.  Next lightly mist the stamp with water (by using the Versamark on the stamp first it holds the water in place on the stamp).  Stamp onto card, hold for a few seconds, lift off and blot with kitchen roll.  This will give you a ghosting effect.  Repeat all over. 
  7. Mount the square on to black card and  glue to front of card.
  8. Mount the strip onto black card and glue to lower half of card front.
  9. Colour a scrap of watercolour card with the inks.  Stamp sentiment on using Brazil Nut ink.  Mount on to black card.  Attach with 3D foam.
  10. To finish take some bandage. Put some drops of inks onto a craft sheets.  Spritz the bandage/Cambric with water and then dip into the inks to colour.  Dry.  Make a bow.
