Happy Friday! I've been busy playing with the Colour My Flowers stamp set and die set designed by Joset Designs. I love how this card has turned out and by colouring the flowers with sparkle markers, the flowers really sparkle. Read below as I share with you how to recreate my Thinking of You Card at home.
Start by applying Jet Black Archival Ink to one of the leaf stamps and stamp it onto a piece of Watercolour Cardstock. Repeat the previous step for stamping the leaf a second time as well as stamp the other leaf twice. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to four of the flower stamps and stamp onto the same piece of Watercolour Cardstock. One of the flower stamps, you'll need to stamp twice. Colour the flowers and leaves using the following Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers: Emerald Green, Holly Leaf, Cosmos, Rose Quartz, Sea Breeze, Moonlight, Pink Garnet, Clear and Moonstone. Die cut the leaves and flowers out using the corresponding dies. Ink the edges of the flowers and leaves using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Die cut the 4" Dashing Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the dashing rectangle piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
From the Words 2 - Thinking of You die set, die cut the "Thinking of You" words out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Blend Jet Black Archival Ink over the entire surface of each word.
Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the flowers across the middle of the dashing rectangle piece. Adhere the leaves where desired in amongst the flowers.
Use foam squares to adhere the "Thinking of You" sentiment overtop of the middle flower.
To finish your card, cut a cardbase that measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4". Use foam squares to adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Here's a closeup of the finished card.
And here's the finished Thinking of You card.
