Hello, Altenew friends! It’s
Virginia here! Today’s card is all about creating a unique focal point with a large stamp set. I am using “ Engagement Wishes” as my example. You may find it daunting to use a large floral image as the focal point. With some planning ahead, you can easily come up with a one-of-a-kind image for your design.
I started out with stamping the floral image in Jet Black first. I then stamped another flower image on my Post-it note paper and used that as the mask. With the mask in place, I stamped the leaves around the flower with Grass Field Crisp Dye Ink.
Coloring the images with Watercolor Brush Markers does not get any easier. The vibrancy of the brush markers is absolutely amazing. With the help of a Watercolor Palette, I diluted the colors with a few droplets of water. I didn’t fuss too much about the coloring as the detailed image truly speaks for itself.
I stamped the flower in Embossing Ink with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. This helps the flower outlines really show through! I can not stress enough about the beauty of using Clear Embossing Powder.
After cutting out the ENTIRE image (leaves and flower in one piece), I set it aside and worked on the background. I added glitter paste with Floral Mandala Stencil. To make the birthday sentiment (from Dandelion Wishes) stand out, I white-embossed it in Pure White Crisp Embossing Ink. For the final touches, I added sequins, glitter, and strings.
I hope this card inspires you to use your floral stamps to create a one-of-a-kind focal point. This is a great way to convey to the card receivers just how unique and special they are on their special day! Thank you for stopping by!
