Magenta and Imagine Crafts Blog Hop - Day 6


Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Magenta Rubber Stamps! Both companies are excited to share with you their products, from the latest inks from IMAGINE Crafts to the newest Fall and Holiday stamp releases from Magenta.

For today's installment of the hop, I created a card using the Wedding Dress Irresistible spray on a floral mask and "stamped" with it to create a resist design area.


Magenta products used: Stamps- Butterfly, Carpe Diem; Blossoms floral mask; chipboard tag, patterned paper Tapestry

Imagine Crafts products used: Moment Inks- Love Letter, Teal Zeal, Black Tuxedo; Wedding Dress Irresistible

Other: scalloped cardbase, branch punch, baker's twine, jewels

Once the Irresistible design was dry, I sponged on the background Momento Love Letter colour. I used a watercolour stamping technique to stamp the gorgeous Magenta Butterfly with Momento Teal Zeal.  After loading the stamp with the ink, I gave it a light spritz of water prior to stamping it on cardstock. As you can see, it softens the lines and moves some of the colour around in a pretty watercolour effect.

While it was drying, I stamped the Carpe Diem sentiment on the chipboard tag and Irresistabled the chipboard heart from the tag. Next, I punched out the branches/leaves and created a cluster with the fussy cut out butterfly and tag. Some Baker's twine and jewels added just the right finishing touches.

One more day to get in on the fun and a chance to score some goodies.  Be sure to comment on all the projects through out the Hop days that have been posted.
