Welcome back to Super Saturday. I needed to make some encouragement cards and this sentiment from Magenta has always been one of my favorites. You can also see my card on the Magenta blog here.
I started by using my MISTI to stamp the Sketch Blossom on a piece of white cardstock with VersaFine Black Onyx ink. Without moving the stamp, I rotated the paper and stamped again. I repeated this process again so I had a total of three stamped images for each card.
I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils. I used yellow and oranges for the flowers on one card and pinks and reds for the petals on the other card.
I wanted to re-stamp and emboss over the original image to define the lines of the flower. I used an anti-static powder tool on the images because the embossing powder will sometimes stick to the colored pencil. I returned the cardstock to the MISTI the stamped each image with VersaMark ink. I embossed with gold embossing powder on the yellow flowers and silver embossing powder on the red flowers, then used detail scissors to cut out the images.For the background I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock with Sepia VersaFine ink then embossed with clear embossing powder.
I placed a mask over the sentiment then lightly splattered with yellow, orange and gold watercolor paints. I used pink, red and silver watercolor paints for the background for the red flowers. I let both pieces dry well.
I adhered the yellow background to a piece of yellow cardstock, then adhered it to a white A2 card. After cutting out the flowers with detail scissors, I arranged them onto the background. I used foam tape to adhere them to the front of the card. Since the flowers extended over the edge of the yellow card, I trimmed them with scissors but I forgot to take a picture of that step.
For the second card I used a piece of dark pink cardstock and arranged the flowers so they fit within the edges of the card.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
