This is so not the card I had pictured in my mind when I started stamping. I knew I wanted to use the Rich Razzleberry Designer Series Paper I just bought and had planned to use a different stamp set and accessories.
Despite the fact this card doesn’t look anything like my plan, I like it. And I am loving the Watercolor Trio stamp set used here. Personally, I often make mono chromatic cards when I am struggling with a design. And that is why you often see one colour cards posted here!
I stamped the image from Watercolor Trio multiple times using different generations of Rich Razzleberry ink. The first time you stamp an image it is called the first generation. If you stamp the image again without re-inking, you now have a second generation image. You can continue with third generations and more until you re-ink the stamp.
Generational stamping is an easy technique that allows for different colours of ink from the same ink pad. It is a great way to stretch your ink investment.
I layered the stamped image onto Rich Razzleberry textured cardstock from the In Color textured cardstock assorted package and then onto Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the greeting onto Whisper White cardstock with Rich Razzleberry ink and punched it out with a 1-1/4" circle. This was adhered to a punched Rich Razzleberry 1-3/8" circle and attached to the image piece with dimensionals.
I created the side panel with Rich Razzleberry DSP, a Whisper White piece of cardstock embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder and a length of Rich Razzleberry ribbon.
I added three white jumbo brads in the bottom right corner and assembled the card with a 1-3/4" circle of Rich Razzleberry cardstock tucked in behind the stamped pieces.
Not the card I expected to create today but maybe just a little bit better! Hope you like it!
