LOVE these cards from Tonya! (and she has a video tutorial!!!).
Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great summer. I wanted to share with you a great little card for any occasion. I really enjoyed making this card, best part - it is a SCRAP buster! For today's card I used these AMAZING stamps from Yvonne and Impression Obsession:
I decided to create two cards today, but since they are exactly alike just different orientations, I only did one tutorial. I used the leaves from the Scribble flower as foliage around my flower clusters, and the Sketch Twig offered the perfect background to ground my daisies. A few splats of pink paint made it look as though flowers were blooming in the background. Then I stamped the daisies from the Scribbles stamp set onto some card stock, and cut the blossoms out. Some were glued flat to the card, while others were popped up on foam adhesive to give them depth. The sentiment is generic enough to be great for a note of encouragement, thanks, or a birthday wish.
For the tops of my flowers, I decided to give them some pop by adding a little gold embossing to the center's of the daisies. I used Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts Stamper's Big Brush Arts Pens in the following colors on my images:
Chromium Green Opaque #174
Cadmium Yellow #017
Caput Mortuum #159
May Green #170
I also used a basic watercolor set as well.
With the inside of the card. I love hand lettering my sentiments. I feel it makes them more personal.
You can see how I colored this card in the video tutorial below:
Here is another card I created using the same techniques, but keeping the card Vertical.
For the inside of this card, I decided to freehand a curve then write my Birthday message along the curve. It was easy to erase the pencil marks I used for the guides once the ink had dried.
Thank you for hanging out with me today, I hope you had fun and was inspired to pull out some watercolor paints and play around. It was a lot of fun making these cards.
