Partial Stamping and Free hand drawing

Partial Stamping
        Hi friends Thank you so much for the encouragement on my stamped projects...I am not much of a stamper and felt so encouraged when many commented about the partial stamping idea! So sharing another project which is not very beautiful but good to illustrate the partial stamping technique.
Partial Stamping
          In my last card with partial stamping ,because of the design of the stamp I was able to easily ink part of it using an ink pad...when I tried to use the border floral stamp design shown above I couldnt get a perfect partial inking because of the scrolls .I didnt want to bother about masking and wanted a quicker way. SO used an embossing dabber [ white bottle shown above] and stamped my flowers in clear embossing ink...applied gold embossing powder and used the brush to dust off powder from any stray area.
Freehand drawn leaves
        After heat embossing ,  you can see how the border stamp was converted to a different stamp! Colored the flowers blue using tumbled glass Distress Ink swiped on a craft mat and misted with water. And no the leaves are not part of the stamp design...I hand drew the simple leaves using the dark green shade of Staedler water color pencil and colored inside it using the lighter mint green shade.
 Dipped a thin tipped paintbrush in drops of water and went over the colored areas to blend the 2 shades of green

 Its was bit cloudy when I took the pictures so not able to properly capture the beauty of this simple card!

Partial Stamping Background Building

Partial Stamping
       Hi friends it is sometimes so much fun to participate in Challenges....because of the awesome themes at WCMD Challenges at W & W I decided to dust off my neglected stamps and have some stamping fun! One of the technique Challenges is partial stamping...I inked only one flower of the flower-stem trio stamp in Memento dandelion [the size of these inkpads is ideal for partial stamping]and randomly stamped on Ivory card stock. 
Partial Stamping
I wanted a floral texture so reverse embossed it in a floral embossing folder and layered it on kraft card.
Distress Ink Coloring
The clouds are memory box die cuts embossed in a swirl folder and colored with Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and misted with water.One cloud was cut from glossy card stock and the other from ivory card..interesting to see the different look isnt it!
Heat Embossed Water Colored
        Since I was following a sketch from W & W I arranged heat embossed heart felt creations handmade flowers [ water-colored with Distress Ink Pads ]on the lower corner and added fluttering golden butterflies.  The " Thank you " is a golden metallic sticker .
