…the World to Me

Hi there!

It’s a gray day here in these parts.  And I’m hoping to add a little warmth and color to part of your day with a floral card.  Today, I’m sharing a card using products from the new Penny Black release, Sweet Spring.

SUPPLIES: Stamps: Exquisite (40-614); Heartful (30-286) Color: Dual Brush Pens (Tombow); Gansai Tambi Watercolor Set (Kuretake); Pumice Stone and Picket Fence Distress Ink (Ranger); Black Onyx Versafine (Tsukineko) Other: Versamark Ink (Tsukineko) Clear Embossing Powder (Ranger); White Embossing Powder (Ranger); Bristol Paper; Vellum Paper; Clear Dew Drops

I really love the floral stamps from this new release and chose the appropriately named flower image, Exquisite (40-614).  I stamped the image on a panel of Bristol paper using Versafine ink and white embossing powder.  I then colored the image with my dual brush bens using hues of  pinks and purples.  I would add a small dab of ink towards the center of each petal and then dragged the color with a waterbrush pen.  I did the same using yellow hues for the center of each flower.

I didn’t want my background to be completely white and decided to add a little blue around the flowers.  I mixed the lightest blue and white from my Gansai Tambi watercolor set to create a lighter blue.  I carefully added water to the panel and then added the color.  I allowed it dry and found that it was a little too light for me.  So, I then added a mixture of Pumice Stone and Picket Fence Distress Ink and water around the petals.

To complete the card, I added a sentiment from Heartfelt (30-286) to a vellum strip.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Ink and then clear embossed.  I attached the vellum strip to my panel and then attached the panel to my card base.  I added clear dew drop embelleshmints to complete the card.

I’ll be sharing a few more cards from this release in the next few weeks.   So stay tuned!
