Happy Monday! Nothing like a glittery flower card to kick off the week right? Added bonus it fits in with our current challenge: Embossing!
When I sat down to make my card I was rifling through stamp sets I love but haven’t seen nearly enough ink. I really wanted to use the large outline flower from Hello Flowers but the outline is so bold. I was looking for something a little softer. After looking some more I decide maybe I could make it fit what I wanted. Turns out, I could 🙂
I used second generation stamping in Pale Tomato. I outlined the image with a Copic Multiliner and colored it with copics. I added a few detail lines and some dots for fun. I fussy cut the flower out. The leaf image in the set is a solid stamp and I wasn’t really feeling that. I have a love/hate relationship with solid images 🙂 I decided to use the swirl stencil as faux leaves in the background. I smooshed some Lime Green ink onto my craft mat to color my embossing paste. I was pretty generous with the amount I applied to my stencil. Before it was dry I sprinkled on some crystal glitter.
The card felt a bit empty so I used a black circle to bring it together. I trimmed the circle out from behind the flower because I just didn’t like the way it looked. The sentiment was stamped on some white and popped up with dimensional adhesive. I decided to add a few gold sequins as an accent.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
