Hi friends, I have another card to share with you today which uses the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers stamp set.
Simple steps really for this one. I stamped the main image using Archival Black ink onto Neenah white cardstock. Then I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color these in. The colors I used were
- Yellow flowers – 050 Yellow and 070 Orange
- Purple flowers -081 Light Violet
- Foliage – 041 Light Green and 040 Green
I did try to add a few highlights using white gel pen, but in my impatience, I did not wait for the ink to dry. The white got a little blended in, but it gave some unexpected look and I liked it. So went with it.
I fussy cut the image leaving a white border, foam mounted this on a black card base and finished it off with few shiny enamel dots. When I trimmed the access, I found one almost whole leaf that was sticking out, instead of discarding it, I tucked it under my main image enhancing the layered look. For the sentiment I used ‘Best Wishes’ and foam mounted that also. This came in one of the Spellbinders card kits.
I am running a giveaway on Instagram this month. As some of you might know, July is my birthday month and this time I have decided to give one of my Instagram friends a gift! Do check it out for a chance to win $20 gift card to Simon Says Stamp. :-)
