Pinkfresh Studio - Springfield stamping with Liquid Watercolor

January 13, 2019

Happy Sunday, crafty friends! I meant to get this posted yesterday, but I pretty much spent all day and all night in my craft studio getting ready for the Pinkfresh Studio new release that is happening tomorrow! Seriously...the only break I took was to go to my early birthday dinner that we had scheduled with some of our friends. We went to a restaurant in St. Paul called Gray Duck, and it was delish! Basically elevated Minnesota comfort food - I definitely recommend it if you are ever in the area!

Our weekend promo at Pinkfresh Studio is a fun one! Get 20% off select background stamps using code BKGRD20OFF now thru Sunday, 1/13 at 11:59pm or while supplies last.

 I wanted to share this card I made with the Springfield stamp set awhile ago, but never got around to sharing it on my blog. This is such a pretty floral stamp set, and perfect for coloring in with our Liquid Watercolor! It includes a few sentiments as well, but can also be paired with many of our other sentiments, especially from Aviary and Fruitastic, as they use the same typeface.

This card is actually very simple to recreate. To start, I stamped the floral image & the sentiment to a white cardstock block slightly smaller than an A2 card in onyx black Versafine ink. Then I proceeded to color it in with our Liquid Watercolor in the following colors: Candy Apple, Clementine, Sunshine, & Key Lime. Once finished, I set it aside to dry naturally. 

Once it was dry, I mounted it to the front of a black A2 card base with a full sheet of foam adhesive. I create my own full sheets of these foam adhesives just by cutting down sheets of white fun foam to 3.75x5, then covering each side in 2.5 inch Scor Tape. I've found this to be the most cost effective way to be able to apply a full foam sheet to the back of my cards, avoiding any weird warping or dents in my card fronts.

To finish, I added some shimmer to the floral image with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen, then flicked black paint splatters to the front with our Licorice liquid watercolor. And that's it...super simple!

The Basic Banners stamp set is also part of the 20% off weekend promo - I will share a full write-up on these cards on a different day, but just thought I would share them here in case you needed some inspiration for the set!

That is all I have for you today! I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends!

Have a great rest of your Sunday!
