Welcome to the LAST stop of the two day Pretty Pink Posh blog hop (((if you have made it this far haha))). On the day of the new product release, I posted THIS BLOG POST with lots of photos of colored images using each stamp set in the new release. Today I have two cards to share with you using the gorgeous Anemone Floral stamps and dies. Here is an image of all of my flowers after I had colored them and die cut them out. Coloring is definitely my favorite part, so I tend to spend way to long on that part of the process!
Half of the above flowers were painted with watercolors and the other half were colored with Copic markers. Then I used colored pencils on ALL of them to add details and shading. Can you tell which ones are watercolors? It is the brighter more intensely colored ones - like the bottom right side that I outlined in black marker. I stamped all of them with MFT Natural Ink for a no-line stamping look, but then I wanted the watercolored ones to have outlines, so I doodled some on.
I used some of these colored flowers to make two cards to share with you today, but the good news is, I have lots of flowers left to make more cards in the future!
This card uses my Copic/colored pencil flowers on white cardstock. They definitely have a softer look. I like how the colored pencils allowed me to add lines in the flower petals so the look more realistic. I added the centers to the flowers with a black fine tip marker.
For the background of this card, I used the Scalloped Hexagon dies. I painted the outside piece with purple watercolor using a wet on wet technique. I left the inside white and stamped the sentiment on it with Hot Mama ink by SSS. The sentiment comes from the new stamp set called Simple Sayings Kind.
I finished the card with some PPP Jewels in Pansy Purple.
To make the background of this card, I started with a piece of card size white cardstock. I attached it to a craft mat and used sticky tape to tape down the SSS Tiny Dots stencil. I rubbed Moonstone Nuvo Glitter Paste over the top of the stencil so that once it was removed, it left little dots of glimmer. This is the first time I've used this glimmer paste and this is the only color I have it in. I absolutely love it - it is really shimmery and dries super quick. It works great over stencils. I liked the subtle background it created for my pretty flowers.
I die-cut the word die Thankful For You out of gold cardstock. When die-cutting word dies or dies with lots of details, I use a Metal Adaptor Plate between my paper and die-cut plate. This gives you a clean cut every time! I attached the watercolored flowers over the card front and then the thankful for you words above the flowers. I finished the card with some Watermelon and Pansy Purple jewels.
