Hello cardmaking friends. First off, thank you so much for visiting my blogpost! Today I made a clean and simple floral card with lots of masking and Copic Markers.
To begin, I stamped one of the small floral images from the Grace's Little Notes clear stamp set. I then stamped it 3 other times on masking paper and fussy cut them out. I continued stamping, masking each image as I went, until I achieved a bundle of flowers in the lower right hand corner of my card panel.
Once the staping was complete, I die-cut the entire panel with the largest of the Stacked Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then used the You Inspire Me stamp set and stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx blaxk ink. The sentiment reads 'Believe in your strength.' I added clear embossing powder to it and heat set until a smooth, shiny, raised finish occured.
Then it was time for the fun part (for me anyways).... coloring!!! I pulled out my Copic markers and decided I wanted to go with pink flowers today. To achieve this corally pink I used a (new-to-me) color combination of RV25, R46, RV21 and R20. Once I liked how the flower petals looked I began coloring the background. I used B00 to trace closely to the stamped flowers. I then blended it out with B000 and B0000 and the 0 colorless blender marker - fading the color as I rose toward the top of the card-front. Lastly, I colored the leaves with only 2 colors, YG03 and YG17.
To finish the card I adhered the stamped and colored panel to a black, Eclipse 100lb., top folding, card base. The Tropical Treasure sequin pack matched my project perfectly, and I added 3 sequins as my finishing touch. I hope you like my pink, floral, believe card and thank you again for taking the time to visit my post. Hugs!!
Love and Laughter,
