You’re Amazing, Rainbow Anemone

Welcome friends! Thanks for joining us here at The Ton Stamps blog, The Season. Janette here to share with you a rainbow-licious pair of cards created with the Anemone Garden Cling Background from The Ton’s most recent release.

I’ll show you how I’ve created a different look for each card while still using the same rainbow colors and the same background stamp.

This card, with the top to bottom rainbow, was created by white heat embossing the Anemone Garden Background on Bristol paper. Next, I followed rainbow order (ROY G BIV) in choosing my Distress Inks. For this method just squish the ink pad to a craft mat several times and add several drops of water. I began in the top left corner and applied each color with a paintbrush. I did not allow dry time between colors because I wanted them to blend. Once I made it through all the colors, I applied a second and third coat to intensify the colors.

I assembled the card by trimming it to A2, adding twine, Happy Birthday, Glass Slippers Round Confetti and adhering it to a folded A2 card base.

The focal Anemone on this card was created as the first, with the same colors. The background was finished with Black Soot Distress Ink, in the same watercolor fashion. To give the white a bit of a distressed feel, I heated the white embossing with a Minc Machine and heat tool and placed a white sheet of paper on it. I rubbed across the surface while still heating and picked up the paper which lifted portions of the embossing.  I then added a bit more black to enhance those areas.

I assembled by trimming panel to A2, stamping sentiment from Fresh Cut Anemone Outlines in StazOn ink on vellum and adhering only to back of panel. Finally, adhere to A2 folded card base and add Glass Slippers Round Confetti for a touch of sparkle.

      Thank you! I enclosed the Anemone panel in a blank piece of scratch paper. Then ran it through the Minc. The Minc melted the embossing powder so that it would transfer to the scratch paper leaving a distressed look to the Anemone panel. Be sure to remove the scratch paper before it cools so it doesn’t tear the paper. If it does start to tear the paper, heat it with a heat tool and try again. I did not have any tearing, but did use a heat tool to melt the powder further in a few spots and remove even more embossing. It’s a super fun technique! Thanks for your interest! If you give it a go, share it and tag me. I’d love to see it!
