Today’s post is for a collaboration between Inkon3 and My Sweet Petunia, the company behind the MISTI. If you know me, you know I’m useless without my MISTI, I’m a forever fan, that’s for sure.
For my card today, I decided to use the new My Sweet Petunia stamp set, with the coordinating layering stencils! So cool. I love these.
I have used the luscious Atelier inks for the inkblending, with an array of Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios. For the flowers I used Sweet Petunia Pink (duh, lol!) and Bee Sting Yellow. I did plan on using some My Jam Purple for depth, but just layered up more of the pink and yellow.
For the stems and leaves I used Goddess Green with a touch of Trinity Teal and Bee Sting Yellow. I’m not 100% happy with the result though, I should have just used the green and teal I think.
After letting this dry a little, I used an anti-static tool all over the panel before popping it into my MISTI. As I wanted to heat emboss the My Sweet Petunia stamp over it, I am so glad I had the MISTI on hand. NO waaaaaay I would have been able to get it right with a stamping block.
I reached for my fave WOW! embossing powder, Rich Gold, and after stamping the image with the Embossing Pad, I sprinkled it all over, tapped off the excess and set it with my heat tool.
That gold goes so well with the colours, but then it does work with everything in my opinion. I love this gold, it’s so classy and elegant. Apparently there wasn’t enough gold on it already though, so I splattered some gold water colours, from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors palette, all over it as well.
Sentiments wise I didn’t want to take away too much from the flowers, so I kept it simple with a sentiment from the Here For You set, stamped up in Sweet Petunia Pink, on a slim banner.
I have a video on my YouTube channel too, as well as a reel for almost the same card, but with different colour ratios (and no yellow on the stems) as well as Platinum embossing powder, on my Instagram, if you want to see snippets on how the card was made.
