Hello, friends!

Always appreciate you dropping by! Just popping to share a card featuring my dot coloring technique. I created this card for the fun new Instagram challenge Simon Says Stamp started this month (check it out here: @simonsayschallenge ) This time I came up with the idea of creating the dimensional floral card with amazing flowers from the Hibiscus Bouquet Stamp Set from Altenew.

altenew-hibiscus-bouquet-cards-alexsyberia-cardmakerI started by stamping flowers and leaves onto a piece of a white cardstock using Black Ranger Archival Ink. I then watercolored all images with Kuretake Zig Art & Graphic Twin markers using dot coloring technique. For the flowers I used the following colors: Red, Sugared Almond Pink, Lilac, Oatmeal, Mid Yellow, Cobalt Blue and Cornflower Blue. For the leaves I used the following colors: Cobalt Blue, May Green, Oatmeal and Peacock Blue. And I added some dots with a silver brush pen.

Before adhering the images to my card panel, I stamped some leaves and a sentiment to the panel. Also, I blended some Altenew Ocean Waves Ink and Altenew Coral Berry Ink on the panel. I then adhered the flowers and leaves on the panel using foam tape to add dimension.

I hope you were inspired by this card! 🙂

Alex! I had no idea SSS had an Instagram challenge – no need to enter, however, because I’m looking at the winner at this very moment!!!
A friend came to get crafty recently [one day it will be YOU] and I had the chance to stamp/color/cut these gorgeous Hibiscus! Thank you for showing me a beautiful arrangement for them! xx
