Finetec flowers

Hello there my crafty friends!  During the last 30 day coloring challenge I had a little time to play along with the coloring.  I pulled out my stash of Finetec watercolors.  I love these little gems!  The metallic finish and sparkle is just amazing.  I just couldn't decide on which colors to use so I did several different colors.

To start, I cut several pieces of black cardstock and treated it with anti-static powder.  I then took the main rose stamp from the Just A Rose set and stamped it with Versamark ink.  Just like picking the paint colors, I couldn't decide on a single embossing powder!  I did one in black, one white, one white pearl, one silver, one rose gold and one gold.  Now to paint them all!  I must admit I had lots of fun playing with the Finetec paints. :-)

I'll tease you with one of the finished cards!

I fussy cut all of the flowers out and thought about what to do with them all.  I wanted them to be the focal point of the cards.  I blew the dust off of my embossing folders and picked several different designs.  I also went through my paper stash and picked out papers that matched well with the flowers.

I used the same basic layout for all of the cards but changing up the sentiments and embossing powders.    I used several sentiments from Time to Blossom and Just a Rose.  I glued all of the pieces onto black card bases and used foam tape on the flowers.  And since you have all been so patient, here are the rest of the cards!

As a final note, I took all of the cards out onto my three season porch so I could get a picture of all that gorgeous sparkle in the sunshine!

I hope you find time to color today.

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …
