My Throwback inspiration is this gorgeous card created by Deepti Malik with one of her stamps from the Blossoms Sprays Series in her dee's ARTST IMPRESSIONS line which includes Blossom Sprays #1, Blossom Sprays #2 and Blossom Sprays #3
Deepti used the Spotlight Technique with Blossom Sprays #3.
Here is how Deepti inspired me:
My TBT Project #1:
I used the same stamp and technique that Deepti used. I stamped the floral image on kraft card stock and white heat embossed it. I repeated that process on white card stock, colored a few pieces of the image with Copics, fussy cut them out, and popped them up with foam tape. I scored around the perimeter and added a sentiment from Dee's Beautiful You Clear Stamp Set.
For this card, I stamped Blossom Sprays #2 with my MISTI on Neenah Solar White 110# card stock leaving the floral stamp in place. I also used my mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment from dee's Beautiful You Stamp Set on 1/4" strips of colored card stack and glued them down. I When the strips were in place, I put the card back in my MISTI, masked above and below the stripes to avoid line up issues, and and stamped the floral image again. I added some flat silver dots to jazz it up a bit. I love the way this turned out.
This is made with Blossom Sprays #1. It is stamped with VersaFine ink on a watercolor panel created with Distress Oxide Inks, then heat embossed with clear EP. The sentiment is from a retired STAMPlorations set called For The Birds. I added some enamel dots and my project was complete.
