Hello friends! Erum here and I have a card to share with you that I made with Blooming Bouquet Stamp Set.
In addition to a large bouquet stamp in the Blooming Bouquet Stamp Set, there are some smaller stamps to build your own floral spray. Today, I will be focusing on the other stamps in this set.
First of all, I made masks of the flowers I was going to use. Next, I stamped the bigger of the two single flowers with Permanent Black Ink . Especially relevant, you need to have a sense of where your flowers would go. Because you will have to leave a bit of space for leaves if you are placing your floral spray in a corner like I did.
I then masked the stamped flower and stamped it again where I had visualize it would go. Then, I masked the second flower as well. Now, both my flower masks in place, I started to add the leaves.
There are two pairs of leaves and three single leaves in this stamp set. I used all five where they would fit perfectly.
The Artist Markers colours I used are as follows:
- Flowers: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves
- Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen
- Shadows: Morning Frost
As a result of stamping on one level, I had to rely on shadows to add depth and dimension to my image. So, I took out the new Artist Marker from Set B, Morning Frost, and added shadows. As a result, we now have depth and it looks like the image is popping off of the card!
When you are doing something like this, a big bold sentiment is the perfect way to go and I have noticed that it looks quite nice if you cover part of the image. So, I stamped the beautifully written “hello” onto the card front covering just a tiny bit of the floral spray.
Also, I went back and added a few tiny dots stamps as fillers plus a few grey splatters here and there.
While I was adding yellow to the smallest flower,my marker slipped and I had a blob of yellow. Therefore, I decided to add a few Buttercream and Frayed Leaf dots here and there (like sweet May does in her cards). The card needed some bling. Hence, I added a few sequins and I was done.
Probably not the quickest card to make, but it does not look bad! I hope you liked it. I tried to explain all the steps clearly. In case I missed anything, please feel free to ask in the comments.
