Meet today's card.
No blue...can you believe it?!
I was recently published in the Craft Stamper magazine and this flower stamp was a freebie with the magazine. So pretty that I just had to make a card using it.
My MISTI came in so handy for making this card. I stamped the flower onto scrap paper first and cut it out to make a mask as I wanted to overlap my flowers. I stamped the first one then masked it and continued to stamp and mask all around the edge of my card. I also embossed the flowers with clear powder so when I watercoloured my flowers, the paint wouldn't run outside the lines. By embossing the image it creates a bit of a dam to hold the water and the ink inside the lines with no bleeding.
I then got out my Brusho and using a paint brush and water, applied colour to my flowers.
When they were all dry, I added details with a white Signo gel pen to brighten them up a bit and add some interest. I stamped the sentiment and added the hand drawn border.
