Good morning, card makers, and welcome back to the Hampton Art blog!
Today's card is a one layer affair that focuses on color and sparkle to carry the day.

  1. Make a 4.25” x 5.5” card base and round bottom corners.
  2. Make two masks of flower stamp.
  3. Stamp left flower and adhere mask. Stamp top flower and adhere mask. Stamp bottom flower and remove both masks; correct halos with black fine point pen if needed.
  4. Ink sentiment and stamp using graduated colors of ink (see TIP below for instructions).
  5. Color flowers with pencils.
  6. "Color" stamens with glue pen and apply glitter.
  7. Adhere strip of double-sided tape to bottom of card and apply glitter.
You don't need an hombre ink pad to get great hombre results with a sentiment! Using a MISTI, stamp the top portion of the sentiment using the lightest ink color, then wipe off the ink, and cover that portion of the stamp with a Post-It note. Reink with the next darkest color, stamp, wipe ink from stamp and reposition the Post-It note further down the stamp. Repeat using a darker ink and repositioning the Post-It note until you're finished! (If you use the MISTI and don't remove the stamp, you will have perfect placement of each layer of ink: no blurriness, no fuzzy edges, etc.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
