Hi, now that Christmas is over I can get back to my beloved floral stamps. I love colouring in flowers and have a one layer card to share with you today. I stamped the big floral image onto Bristol smooth card with Versamark embossing ink and covered the sticky embossing ink with Classic Gold embossing powder. I heat set the powder until it was all melted and smooth. I used the Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers to colour in the image.
I put the colour down where it would naturally be darker – at the base of the petals and the bottom of the leaves and where one leaf/petal is overlapping another and used an Aqua Flow water brush to bring the colour out. The colours I used are listed and linked below with the supplies.
Since I left no space for a sentiment I needed to add a banner strip. I trimmed a piece of vellum to and stamped Happy and Birthday with Versamark ink and used the same gold embossing powder. I heat set this sentiment then decided that I needed something to make this stand out from the background. I placed some Be Creative Scor tape along the bottom of the vellum piece and used this to hold the gold embossing powder, and heat set this.
I placed the vellum sentiment strip where I wanted it to be and folded the ends around to the back of the card to adhere the vellum strip to the card. I added this to a standard card base and my first floral card of 2018 is finished.
Who would you send this card too?
