Hi all. I hope your all well, Its Jen here! This month I have a beautiful bouquet of flowers to share with you.
The new Flower Doodles 4x6 Stamps – LDRS Creative was my inspiration for this card. The florals in this set are so adorable and timeless.
I knew I needed lots of flowers to create this little bouquet, so I began by inking the stamp with Raven – LDRS Creative hybrid ink. The images were stamped onto heavy weight white card stock 3 or 4 times. I added colour with alcohol markers using a violet and teal colour palette and contrasting bright yellow centres.
Once I was happy with the colouring, I die cut the images with the Flower Doodles Coordinating Dies – LDRS Creative.
I took a sentiment from the set, stamped it with Watermark Emboss Pad – LDRS Creative onto a piece violet pearlised cardstock and heat embossed with a a fine white embossing powder. I used the sentiment die to cut it out and added it to a shadow layer that was cut from some scrap white cardstock with liquid glue.
The die cut flowers were arranged into a pretty bunch and adhered to a piece of pretty patterned paper from the Lovely Watercolor 6x6 Paper Pack – LDRS Creative that was cut down to 5 x 3.75 inches. The sentiment was placed at the bottom to ground the whole image.
For contrast I took more of the violet pearlised paper and trimmed it to 1/8th of an inch larger than the patterned background. I also added a lilac peel off to the top and bottom to add some shine.
The background was popped up on foam tape and added to the violet mat layer and then placed onto a white US A2 cardbase.
As always I love to add a little bling to my cards as a finishing touch and I think these deep purple flat sequins really pack a punch.
Hope you enjoyed this months tutorial and I'll catch you all again soon.....Bye!
