I like flowers, a lot!! Anything image resembles flowers grabs my attention. Having that said, I also enjoy using different things to make images that resemble flowers. For today I created a floral card without using any floral stamp. Take a look:
I used the smiley heart in the Hero Arts Everything Smiles Stamp and Cut set, it is perfect to double up as a flower petal. I stamped it in Soft Granite and watercolored the blooms. Do you know that the Hero Arts shadow ink is good for both watercolors and markers. They won’t bleed or run even if you go over it with watercolors!!
So after I did my blooms I found that the background is just too empty, guess I didn’t plan it out, was too excited about making flowers with the heart!! LOL But the little curly streamer bits from the Monthly Hero Kit Dec 2016 came to the rescue! I stamped them in Peeled Paint and Soft Leaf. The floral panel is mounted onto a charcoal grey card base, the sentiment is stamped in Soft Granite and watercolored and matted with dark grey card stock.
I hope you enjoy my flowery card created without a flower stamp! This month’s challenge is Flower Power, come play with us, Scroll down to catch the details.
