Happy Wednesday Peeps!!
Let me start out by thanking everyone for all the comments and emails on my previous post. It is heartwarming to know that so many appreciate my stamping and crafting endeavors.
I decided to take some time yesterday to color and bit and I am proud to say it lead to two cards, this one I am sharing today and the other I will post later.
I am soooooo loving this new set from the Stampin Up mini that is ending very soon.
It is called Birthday Blooms and it is so up my alley. You all know how I love coloring and I especially love coloring flowers and making flowery cards.
I started out by staming my image onto some Confetti White card stock, this is a heavy weight card stock made by Papertrey. I love their card stock. I used Black Stazon ink and then began my coloring.
I used my water brush and laid down a base color using my Blushing Bride ink pad. I just squeeze the pads together while closed so some ink pools onto the lid and use that ink for coloring
I used Calypso coral ink for the darker shaded areas.
I used Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi ink for the leaves. I then laid down some blue around the edges using Pool Party ink. The center stamens are colored with some Crushed Curry and then I went over that using my white gel pen.
The sentiment comes from the Petite Pairs stamp set.
I did stamp color and cut out an extra leaf to lay over the sentiment panel. I didn't like the look of the sentiment over the leaf and this was the best solution and gives a bit more dimension to the card.
I added some gold enamel dots from my stash.
I matted the main image with basic black card stock and then added this piece to the base with foam tape.
Hope you like this card, I think it came out nice and I love the clean look.
