Create a Father’s Day Scenic Card with VersaFine Clair Inks

by Jessica Lin

Create a Father's Day Scenic Card with VersaFine Clair Inks

Hi everyone! Father’s Day is right around the corner and I’m here to share a simple, masculine card idea with you. It features a forest and lake scene that has a watercolor look, but it’s done completely through stamping! I’ve also shown how you can stretch your ink pads by using second generation stamping. It’s an easy technique that allows you to create different shades of the same color even if you’re just using one colored ink.

Time: 20 minutes

See How to Create Stunning Card Design on Black Paper

See How to Create Stunning Card Design on Black Paper

For today’s card, I used the new StazOn Pigment inks to create this stenciled floral background. I love the way StazOn Pigment Ink looks on dark/black card stock. This is a very easy and simple card to make because the ink is so vibrant. I used my old daubers to add the pigment on my black card stock if you do not have old dauber then consider using an InkBlusher. To make an impact on this design, I first added white ink and then the colored ink on top. This gives me a brighter vibrant impression and I like it a lot. I used a sentiment “sending hugs” stamped in black and added few details to the inside of the flowers with my white gel pen to finish the card.
