I’ve got some florals coming your way today.
The Statement Flowers from Altenew really do make a statement, and during the last round of Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge, I decided to stamp and color them using the no line technique. I inked up the stamp using fadeout ink from Inkon3 and colored with my Copics. I used my lightest BVs for the flowers.
I wanted something in the background, but nothing too distracting. White on white is such a classic look, and I diecut both the Layered Snowflake cover dies from Altenew (there’s an A die and a B die), stacked them on top of each other and glued them to my cardbase.
I fussy cut around my colored image and mounted it on foam tape. This image is quite large, and even though there’s a lot of detail in the image, it’s very easy to fussy cut. I mounted it on a bit of an angle, making the leaves stick out from both sides of the card. I also white heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamps set on black cardstock and added that to my design.
My last finishing touch was a few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Some of them tucked, in true Laura Bassen style, and I even used my scissors on one.
