Botanical Prints – Here For You

Can you stand another one?  I am catching up…

Over at CAS on Friday (#232), the theme is Fruit.  I selected the retired stamp set Botanical Prints for the Rosehip image.

I chose to use the 1970’s inspired colors suggested by Retro Rubber (#184) and to bring these ideas together, I selected the current sketch from Atlantic Hearts (#476).

Here is the result:

BOTANICAL PRINTS – COS232 – RRCB184 – AHSC476 – HLS Watercolor – CCCB21


  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • Panel: (Top – 1¾”, Right – 5½”, Bottom – 3⅝” and Left – 4½” Four-sided Polygon) Very Vanilla cardstock.
    • The sentiment, I’m Always Here for You, from the retired Botanical Prints (circa 2020) was stamped with retired Hello Honey ink standing in for Harvest Gold.
    • The panel was then dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Shape – Focal Image – Rosehip: (2½” x 2½”) Very Vanilla cardstock scrap.
    • The Rosehip image from the Botanical Prints stamp set was stamped with Crumb Cake ink.
    • The image was water-colored with the Fine-Tipped Water Painter Brush using the direct from the Ink Pad Lid methodLeaves – retired Wild Wasabi ink standing in for Avocado Green, Rosehips – retired Dusty Durango ink standing for Burnt Orange and Floral Tip – retired Hello Honey ink standing in for Harvest Gold.
    • Once the paint was dry, the image was stamped again with Soft Suede ink (Brown) over the original image with the aid of the Stamp-a-ma-jig Positioning Tool to add back the finer details of the stamped image.
    • While there is a matching die, I opted to fussy-cut the image with Paper Snips.  It is a small image and I wanted a close cut.

And that was all I did!  I adhered the polygon sentiment panel to the card base and popped up the Rosehip image with Dimensionals.  Very clean and very simple.

Thanks for spending a some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
