Welcome to my blog, crafty friends! Thanks so much, Emily Midgett, for sending everybody over. For the complete details of this hop, head over to the Altenew blog. Take a look at the latest Build-a-Flower release:
This stamp set is a gorgeous cluster of flowers combined with lovely sentiments. Today, I chose only to use the outline stamp of the flower against an ombre background.
THINKING OF YOU, MY FRIEND
- Die cut watercolor paper using the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die.
- Use the watercolor brush markers to create an ombre background starting from lightest to darkest.
- Stamp the outline image onto Vellum and emboss with Rose Gold embossing powder. Die cut the image using the coordiating die.
- Stamp the sentiment on black cardstock and emboss using Pure White embossing powder.
- Assemble card.
TIP: Allow the lightest wash to completely dry then add different shades of blue. This will create some added texture on top of the background.
This is a pretty quick card to make. Sometimes, less is more. It can be simple but elegant. Using a contrasting color for the flower will let it stand out more. Since vellum is translucent, you can still see the variations of blue come through the paper. I stamped 2 clusters of flowers and just layered them on top of each other.
