ID: Ecoline - Resist Pad 7 - Love Where You're At
5"w x 7"h

Created: June 9, 2009

For the background I used Quietfire Design checkerboard corner and the Ranger's Resist stamp pad on dollar store glossy photo paper (see technique detail below). I used an EK Success "Moroco Lace" border punch and punched a couple of the scalloped shapes on one side, then on the other side, making sure my scallops where in line with my background design. Then cut out the strip between the scallops. Rubber stamped the words also from Quietfire "Journey Words set" using Versafine "Majestic Blue" stamp pad, then put them aside. Used the backside of a Bazzill Monochrome cardstock in an orangey ochre tone and rubber stamped the quote also Quietfire "Love where you're at" with the same blue. Mounted it to the resist background paper

Detail #1a

Detail #1b

Made the flowers by using various punches and various scrapbook papers, coloring the undersides of the paper with Pan Pastels, since they weren't stuck to the card and are partially visible. The punched out shapes were then stacked to create the flower.

 I used Imagination elongated heart for the large flower petals in detail #1a. then stacked a couple Marvy 8 petal florets on top then a pearl half bead.

The blue flower in detail #1b was punched out with a Punch Bunch off set oval, then I stacked them together and used a medium hole punch to get the little nick in the petal, then layered them partially on top of each other. Punched out the two center pieces, the red with a fiskar's squeeze punch and the other with the 8 petal from above. Added a half gold pearl bead.

Background Technique: (sorry no pic for this one)

Glossy Dollar Store photo paper. Stamp images with Rangerís resist stamp pad. Heat set.

Put a few drops of Ecoline inks (Deep Ochre, Turquoise Blue, Forest Green) on a melt art mat (not mixed together) and pick up color on the edge of a clean Inkssentials sponge tool. Just enough to color, but not saturated, and sponge over the whole paper, picking up more ink as needed. Mist paper with water to allow inks to merge/blend; pickup excess water with a paper towel. I dabbed a bit more than usual to get a more muted color scheme. Let dry.
