Hello and welcome back! Tonight I'm sharing a few more cards I made with the Vertical Garden stamp set. The set was designed to go with a kit, but it's also great on it's own. There are some big and bold greetings included in the set. Each greeting is two steps, the first is the main greeting and the second is a shadow image.
I made my card base using Basic Gray Cardstock. Then, I cut a layer of Smoky Slate word patterned paper and adhered it to the card front at an angle. I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and sponged on Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay inks using a piece of Stampin' Sponge. I dropped some water on the background using my Aqua Painter, let it set for a minute and then blotted it up with a facial tissue. I love this water drop affect! I stamped the main greeting image in Basic Black ink, and stamped the shadow in Smoky Slate ink. I adhered that piece to the card base, also at an angle.
