Tutorial One-Layer Garden's Edge Flowers: Hello!

Stephanie Beauchemin

Posted on July 26 2021

Hey everyone!

Stephanie here with you today on the LDRS Inspiration page to share how I create a garden-inspired scene using the latest Summer collection!

 

 

I've been in a strange place over the last few months, not sure whether I wanted to pick up my markers or read a good book. But once I received the 

Summer collection and especially the new Garden's Edge Slimline stamp set, I couldn't resist jumping back on the wagon.

 

 

Before even getting to the coloring part, I had in mind to create a one-layer project that included both the images and the sentiment. To achieve this, I took out my Chloe Alpha Uppercase stamp set and started placing the different letters on my stamping platform on a piece of A2 white coloring cardstock. 

 

TIP: I find it easier to start by stamping the first and last letter to see how much space I have for the other letters. Of course, I used the Raven hybrid ink and the Stampendable tool to get a crisp, dark stamping every time!

 

 

Next, I stamped the second and second-to-last letters quite close to the first stamped ones, ending with the middle one, to create the word "Hello".

 

 

Once the sentiment was done, I placed the flower border from the 

Garden's Edge Slimline stamp set on my stamping platform in a way that featured only partially the flowers I wanted to color at the bottom of the panel.

 

 

And I mirrored the flower border at the top of the panel as well. 

 

 

Once that was done, all I had to do was to start coloring all the beautiful flowers with my alcohol markers.

I used the same color top and bottom, but you could totally adapt to whatever combo you prefer!
TIP: One-layer projects tend to be "flat", so you can add dimension with markers by shading each element just a little bit here and there. Try it!
To finish off nicely, I ran the colored panel in my diecutting machine with the largest rectangle from the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers die set, then adhered the stitched panel to an A2 white cardbase.
I hope you like this kind of one-layer projects and will be back with another project very, very soon!
