Blue Flower Trio


Card/Paper: Night of Navy, Ballet Blue, Sage Shadow, Whisper White, Water Colour Paper for the Main Image
Ink: Ballet Blue, Sage Shadow, Versamark
Stamps: A Touch of Nature
Other: 1/4" Whisper White Gross Grain Ribbon, Distressed Lines Cuttlebug folder, Clear Embossing Powder

Card Size: 13.5 cm x 13.5 cm

Method: First stamped the image on to post it notes twice, overlapping the sticky part as much as possible, then cut out to use as masks to layer the flower in the main image. Inked up the flower stamp with markers, and stamped onto the watercolour paper - first stamping the bottom flower, and worked my way up. Left the image to dry well, and then used a blender pen to draw colour from the stamped lines to fill in the petals and stem. Distressed the edges of the paper, and matted it onto the Ballet Blue and then the Night of Navy card. A piece of Ballet Blue was torn down one edge, and then run through the Cuttlebug in the Distressed Lines folder. Tied with the ribbon. Stamped the Sage Shadow backing with the fern leaf and Versamark, then embossed with clear powder. All mounted on to a Whisper White card base.

This card was inspired by, and CASEd, from this one made by Helen of In Love With Stamping.
