Jane’s Doodles Plants

I was so tickled to be the winner of an Instagram giveaway last week and received several stamp sets and two stencils from @linkcraftycards (Cheryl Espie)!  I especially love this particular set by Jane’s Doodles called Plants.  I chose two of the potted plants for my simple card.  Using Versafine Onyx Black permanent ink, I stamped the small pot in the foreground first, then masked it, and stamped the large plant behind it.  I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, added a shadow of light gray all around the edges and spattered some wet ink over all.

Using a big soft makeup brush, I tapped it into Broken China Distress Oxide ink, then gently brushed the ink over the whole panel.  I really like how it softly highlights the images!  I love the sentiment that came with this set, and placed it at the top left.  I also spattered droplets of water over the plants which gave them nice texture but unfortunately, a larger drop made the ink on the red pot run, so I stamped out “friend” onto a tiny scrap and mounted it over the spot with a bit of foam tape.  Save!!  The panel was adhered to a bright aqua blue layer than onto a white card base.  This is not in my usual vibrantly colored, more complex style but I just love the clean simplicity of it!
