January Designer's Choice card - Grace's Flowers

Hello 2018!  It's Jill here on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog back from a little medical LOA and excited to be able to craft again.  My card uses some lovely flower images from KGCs Grace's Little Note stamp set.  As I've enjoyed a little sunshine these last few days, I felt like creating something somewhat simple with light, happy colors. 
I first stamped the 3 floral images onto some smooth Bristol cardstock with my MISTI so I could get the spacing right.  I then used 2 different border dies by MFTs to create the multiple-bordered look. 

I inlaid the central flower panel into its matching border die cut, then used some fun Gold Foil cardstock by DCWV on the outside die cut frame.  Since I was going to use some Nuvo Jewel 
Drops on my flower images, I decided to adhere all the layers first before coloring, as the drying time can take as much as 24 hours.  I chose a light pink watercolor Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! as my base layer to coordinate with one of the flower colors and make a nice frame of color around all the white going on in the card.


Finally I get to the coloring, my favorite part!  I decided to use some markers that I'd not used in a while, the Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I chose 2 greens for the leaves and 3 soft pastel colors in yellow, orange, and pink.  After my coloring was done, I picked out coordinating colors of Nuvo Jewel Drops (Limoncello, Orange Marmalade, and Rosewater).  I applied the drops somewhat generously, as I wanted dimension.  Then I set my project aside to dry.  I returned the next morning and adhered the panel to a standard A2 side folding card base.  Project complete!

I hope you enjoyed my card idea.  I've linked the Kennedy Grace Creations products to the store for your convenience and if you'd like a full products list or see other card creations of mine, please visit my blog at www.jktayloredcards.com.  The most comprehensive collection of my cards are found on Instagram as jktaylor911.

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
