I love ink smooshing with Distress inks!  Another stamp set that I haven’t played with yet is this Altenew Bottleful Of…

Bottleful-Of-Altenew

Stamping Onto Textured Card

  • All the cards are on watercolour cardstock.
  • I stamped the bottle outline with black ink and the solid bottle with Forest Glades ink three times to make three bottles.
  • Then stamping the solid label in Tumbled Glass ink and fussy cut.
  • I then stamped the words “kindness” “cheers” and “sunshine” onto the oval labels and use some foam tape to adhere them to the bottles.
  • Trimming this piece to 4 ½” (the width is 3 ¾”) and glued it onto a mat of green cardstock.
  • Just above the watercolour piece I stamped “sending you a bottleful of” and added three dots with a white gel pen.
  • This is a standard 4 ¼” x 5 ½” sized top folding card.

Ink Smooshed Background

  • To create this beautiful yellow inky background, I smooshed some Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks onto my craft mat.
  • Sprayed some water to get the ink moving and push my watercolour cardstock down into this lovely colour.
  • I smooshed and moved the watercolour card so that the whole card was covered in ink and let this dry.
  • There aren’t dies available for this stamp set, so I made a mask of the bottle outline, and cut it out.
  • Stamped the middle bottle first then covered this with the mask, so I could stamp the two other bottles.
  • While I had the mask in place I also stamped the decorative label.
  • Inside the label on the first bottle, I stamped the sentiment “sweet love” and stamped the rest of the sentiment “you are a bottleful of” onto a small watercolour strip and cut a banner edge.
  • This is then adhered to a standard A2 top folding card base.
