Happy Sunday Peeps!!
The challenge this week at The Card Concept, inspired my card I am showing you today.
Are you sick of seeing me use this flower stamp yet?
It is an oldie but definitely, in my eyes, a goodie!
I love the flower, the size of the stamp, the fact that the one flower can be the whole focal image on a card. I love to color this flower as well. I used my favorite method of coloring, watercoloring.
I stamped the flower onto some thick whisper white card stock with black stazon and colored with my water brush. I have had several people ask me about my method of coloring on cardstock so here is a short description of what I do. Yes, coloring on card stock takes some practice, but it is my favorite method. The secret, if there is one, is a light touch and less water. I always start by coloring in the entire flower image lightly with my ink thinned with water substantially. I then go back in adding more color to achieve the shading I want . You do have to be a bit careful to not have to much water flowing from your brush. Practice, practice and more practice.
I fussy cut out my image and added it to the card with dimensionals. The white die cut piece is also added with dimesionals.
There is jus a bi of gold in the inspiration photo, so I added a bit of gold ribbon.
The sentiment is from the Peal Palette set.
