Flowers with a Peek-a-boo Background

Posted on February 20 2019

Hello my fabulously creative friends! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for spring! I was shoveling snow the other day and noticed the spring bulbs are starting to grow!! Since the flowers aren't quite here yet in my garden, I decide to make a card with flowers instead.  This card is simple and cheerful, and easy to make! 

Ready to get started?

LDRS Creative Shopping list:

Beautiful Blooms stamp set

Plaid stencil

Raven ink

Lipstick Jungle ink

Dan-D-Lion ink

Step 1: Stamp the large flower cluster from Beautiful Blooms with Raven ink onto a panel cut to the size of your card front. 

Step 2: Color using your favorite medium. LDRS Creative Hybrid ink is safe for alcohol markers, watercolors, pencils.. what ever you want.. Just be sure you are using the correct paper for the medium you are using.

Step 3: Use a pencil and ruler to LIGHTLY draw lines where you want the background to show.

Step 4: Use a craft knife to cut along your lines until you reach the flowers, then cut around the flowers leaving a slight white border. Carefully erases the pencil lines.

Step 5: Stamp the sentiment. I love how Raven ink is a dark black ink!

Step 6: Using low tack tape, tape the Plaid stencil to the front of your card base.

Step 7: Use ink blenders to blend ink through the stencil. I used Dan-D-Lion and Lipstick Jungle. They blend together beautifully, and make a pretty peach color where they overlap!

Step 8: Add foam adhesive (or sheets of foam with adhesive) to the back of the panel that has your flowers.

Step 9: Adhere to your card base so the plaid background shows through the window.

See how easy that was? I love the fun background the Plaid stencil makes! And these inks blend beautifully!
