For this month’s challenge I wanted to try and use the flower stamp set on different types of card bases.
For the first card I have used a dark card base, a blue colored cardstock that I found in my stash. I simply stamped the gorgeous flower from the stamp set “you are in my thoughts” on white cardstock and did very minimal coloring with Copics.
I wanted the floral image to be predominantly white so decided to give it little shades of blue. I wanted to give the background cardbase a little texture so I decided to ink blend on it. I used a dark blue ink from Hero Arts and the distress oxide ink black soot around the edges of the panel.
Once I colored the stamped image, I then fussy cut the image and mounted it with foam tape on the panel.
I finally embossed the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock and mounted it with foam tape on the card panel. I further embellished the card with some water clear droplets and a white gel pen.
For the second card, I wanted to use a lighter background so I decided to use an off white card base and used the Craftangles hexagonal stacks stencil with some “worn lipstick” distress oxide, to give a little more interest to the background. I colored the stamped image with some of pink copics, fussy cut them and mounted it with a foam tape on the panel.
I then decided to stamp the image directly on the panel using the memento black ink and embellished the card with some water clear droplets and sequins. Before stamping the sentiment, I used some greyish black watercolor and splattered a little paint on the panel with the help of a paintbrush.
For the third and final card I used a different floral stamp set called “Just a Note”. I absolutely love the flowers in this stamp set. For this card’s background I decided to go ahead and use one of the pattern papers from Craftangles “Felicity” collection. The papers I chose has a vintage look along with a few printed script along the edges, I added a few more script prints with a stamp I had with me with the help of the distress oxide ink vintage photo. I then fussy cut the stamped images and mounted them on the panel with some foam tape.
I finally embossed the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock and mounted it with foam tape on the card panel. I further embellished the card with some water clear droplets and sequins
