Faux Mock Flock & Apothecary Acents Dies

Welcome to Fun Friday

Why is it Fun Friday? I hear you all ask.... 
well the reason is because you are going to have SO much FUN using this Mock Flock Technique
It is really simple to do, and gives a fab effect.

Pattern you can see on the flowers was created by stamping the HANDCARVED Background Stamp over your trimmed Whisper White Cardstock using White Craft Ink.
 (and yes, it is on the retiring list!) 
You then need to be really patient and wait for the craft ink to dry (it takes time) I did try using a heat tool to speed up the process but the cardstock warped.
Once dry, you then need a solid stamp - such as the one in the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set 
(Petal Potpourri also comes as a bundle with the co-ordinating punch at a 15% cost saving)

I went with the dramatic colour scheme, using Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, and Lost Lagoon from the 2014 - 2016 In Colour Collection.

You won't see the pattination until the ink dries, but I really love it, and I really did have fun making it. I have a few more using the same technique to show you over the next couple of days,

You will probably notice the sentiment has been stamped onto that divine label from Apothecary Accents Dies. I feel sooo sad that this Die pack is retiring as it is my most favourite Stampin Up! Die, but I am sure there will be something amazing taking it's place.

Trim your Whisper White Cardstock to size allowing for matting (layering) it into a slightly larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and then onto a White Card Blank

Stamp your patterned background stamp all over the smallest layer of Whisper White cardstock using White Craft Ink.
Put it to one side whilst you wait for the ink to dry (craft ink does take longer than normal ink)

Once dry, stamp a solid stamp using no more than 3 colours over the cardstock and wait for the transformation. You will need to clean your stamp between re-inking with your coloured inks as a little White Ink is transferred to the stamp.

Next, stamp your sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Black Stazon Ink
Die cut a the sentiment label using this beautiful Apothecary Accents Die,
Attach a small piece of a Tea Lace Doily to the back of the Label. and apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse and mount onto your card front.
Finish with a bow using White Jute Ribbon
