Hello crafty friends!
It is Friday! woop woop. I hope you have lovely plans for the weekend ahead. I have some crafting and good food planned so I am very much looking forward to it!
I usually go to town with flowers and use my watercolour markers, which otherwise live on a shelf and don’t come out… but this time I did something completely new and different for me: I used an inked blended background to give the flowers colour!
As you know if you’ve read one of my previous posts, I just discovered that I can print on vellum and use embossing powder with a digital stamp with an inkjet printer. What a dream!
So I had to use this technique again with this card.
Best Summer Flowers Bundle digital stamp
I started by ink blending a panel with kitsch flamingo, tumbled glass and dried marigold, arranged in ‘blobs’ around the panel. I wasn’t too worried about the blending not being the smoothest as I knew the panel would be covered by the vellum and flower.
I then printed the flowers panel on vellum and used white WOW embossing powder on it. I used the same Waffle Flower die to get it to be the same as the ink blended panel and glued it down with liquid glue. TIP: don’t do what I did and put glue randomly across the panel as it shows through!! – apply it strategically and dab it with your fingers before gluing the panels together… If you pay attention to my pictures, you can actually see the glue. I was so disappointed but hey, you live and learn!
I used some pearl cardstock for the sentiment shadow and the base of the card as I thought the colours went well together, and I finished it off with some pearls from My Little Things from Lucy.
If you are enjoying this release as much as I am, there are still two more days to hop along and get a chance to win a giveaway! Head over to this post.
I hope you like this and maybe help you use flower stamps in a different way!
