Oh how I truly love the look of emboss resist backgrounds! And the Watercolor Blooms Background Stamp is especially fun because it's a pull apart background stamp. Little pieces of the background easily pop out and pop in so you can get a bunch of different looks and uses from one stamp. I stamped all three backgrounds on Simon Hurley create. Stark White Cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the images with white powder. I used a variety of dye inks and a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool to add ink over the heat embossing.
My first background is what you would imagine stamping a background stamp would look like. I stamped the full Watercolor Blooms background and heat embossed with white powder. I used a Mini Foam Ink Blending Tool to add Crown Me, Remember Me, and Overzealous ink over the background and the white embossing powder resists the ink like magic!! I stamped a sentiment from the Flower Picking Friends stamp set and trimmed it into a sentiment strip and placed it at the bottom of my card.
I wanted to stamp the full Watercolor Blooms background again, but with a little twist. I used some masking paper to mask off the bottom third of the card so that the images only stamped on the top portion. I again heat embossed the background. I kept the masking paper in place and this time I blended on Traffic Cone, Guppy, and Over the Moon inks. I stamped a sentiment from Flower Picking Friends below the ink blending to finish the card.
For my last card I decided to take advantage of the pull apart feature of the Watercolor Blooms Background Stamp and just stamp the single flower and stem image. I centered it onto a piece of Stark White Cardstock and white heat embossed it. I blended Bee Sting ink around the outside edge of the cardstock and then Rosy Cheeks towards the middle. I blended over part of the Rosy Cheeks ink with Over the Moon and that gave me a pretty peachy color! I stamped the sentiment from Flower Picking Friends and trimmed it to a banner and added it over the stem of the flower.
I hope you love this trio of cards! They're super easy but I love them!
