CARD - Spring is here!

Pour la version française de ce tuto, je vous invite à aller sur le blog de ToutEnColle

Yes, I know, another card + bookmark, but hopefully, it's the last one for a bit.I had to do another sample with this PaperArtsy plate, so I chose a completely different colour scheme.... and used purple... not something you will see me use often, but it's my sister-in-law's favourite colour so purple it is :)

Started by stamping the first flower, bending it slightly on my acrylic block. I then masked the stem and lower flowers  

I then stamped the other flowers (still bent on the acrylic block) and then removed the mask

Used Distress Oxide (first, sprayed and dried) and Distress in (on top) to ink the background making sure I left the flowers white. Used the masks again when necessary.

Stamped the grass in green and black at the bottom of the card

Stamped the "sun" and vines (?) at the top of the card using the blue Distress and black ink

Coloured the flowers using Derwent Inktense pencils


If you are not sure if a stamp will fit on your card, or not sure where to place it, stamp it on tracing paper. 

You can then position it on your card to see where it will fit best

I used some Fresco Finish paint (Snowflake) and a brush to add splashes on the background

Also added some white gel pen on the second flowers to make them pop more

Finally, I applied some Nuvo glimmer paste with a brush on the white flowers and the centre of the purple ones

Here's the final card and bookmark going in the post today

Hope you enjoyed this 
Have a wonderful weekend
