Hello friends! Happy weekend! I’m actually excited about it being the weekend! This weekend is a nice long holiday weekend so I can spend time with hubby! Yay! However, I won’t be resting on my blog as there are lots of fun things going on since it’s the start of a new month! So be sure to keep stopping by to see what’s going on! 🙂
Today I took out some flowers and fussy cut them and colored them in happy Fall like colors.
I’ve taken this Flowers stamp set and settled on about 3 different sized floral images to work with along with a couple of leaves. I’ve colored them with Copic markers and then cut them out with my scissors…I set them aside.
I took a piece of white cardstock along with some masking paper and began working in the flowers for the background with Black Ink. I made a mask for them as a went along and worked my way up. After I was done, I took an ink foam blending tool and some soft blue Ink to sponge around the top and side of the panel. I attached the flowers on with glue and some foam tape. (I used thicker foam tape for the largest flower.)
For the banner, I heat embossed the sentiment from a Sentiment stamp set over some Black cardstock with white EP and cut it into a banner and attached it to the card. Lastly, I attached the sequins and then added some gold glitter to the centers.
I attached the white floral panel over a piece of yellow cardstock and then mounted that over an A2 sized top folding black cardstock base.
Here’s closer look at the flowers and how I’ve colored them in.
You can better see the sequins that I’ve used. I actually had one of them laying on my table while I was assembling this card and thought the color matched up nicely with it. Otherwise, I would’ve never thought to get those out to use on this particular card! You never know what could be lurking on your table un-used! LOL!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today! 🙂
Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow!!
