Stretching your markers

Hello everybody!
It’s Donna here and I’ve been really enjoying this new-to-me stamp set! It’s called Loving Mom and it has the most beautiful flowers. What a pleasure to colour!
I’ve used the same markers to colour all the flowers, but by varying the amounts of the darker markers, and the amount of white space left I’ve been able to get some colour variation, while keeping a very controlled colour palette. Rather than blend the brushstrokes, I’ve chosen to leave the individual strokes showing to give some texture to the petals.
Once I’d coloured each of the flowers, I fussy cut them out, right on the black line, and went around the outside with a black marker to stop the white paper showing through.
On a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I ink blended Distress Oxide in Wild Honey, laying it down heavily in the middle and fading out towards the edges of the cardstock. I then glued down the archway which I cut from a die in my stash. I very quickly wove the stem of the back flower through before the glue dried. In the end, this stem got covered by the bigger flower in front, so I needn’t have hurried so much!
The other flowers were added on top, and I lifted the darker flower up with dimensional tape. I lifted up the ends of the petals to give a really three dimensional look to the card.

The sentiment is from another lovely Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set, called Just A Rose. This has also been popped up with foam tape. Finally, I trimmed a tiny bit off the edges of the panel and attached it so a piece of pink card stock  to give a narrow frame around my ‘picture’.

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at this card and have been inspired to get creative. If you’d like to see more cards, feel free to visit me on Instagram.

Please be sure to follow the Kennedy Grace Creations blog, facebook, twitter, instagram and pinterest. Our Design Team has great projects to inspire you with our great stamp sets. 

Until next time, may you have days as peaceful as this scene!
Blessings,

Donna
