Ok, now we can move on to the card. *wink*Here is the card I designed using Art Bloom and Floral Vines from Crafty Secrets. It's the same stamp set but a totally different look from yesterday's card. To start I used the Floral Vine stamp from Crafty Secrets to create the background. I used Tea Dye Distress Ink and stamped on to Simply Smooth White cardstock from Discount Card Stock.Next I used Suede Glimmer Mist and Cotton Candy Chalk Mist from Tattered Angels and lightly misted the paper. I let the mist set for a few seconds and then I place a paper towel on top and use a brayer to go over the entire piece and pick up the excess Glimmer Mist. Doing this will give you a very soft and blended look.I used Tea Dye Distress Ink to ink the edges.To finish off the background paper I stamped one of the floral image from Art Bloom around the edges of the paper using Rich Cocoa ink.To create the flowers I stamped flower images from Art Blooms with Rich Cocoa ink and used Tattered Rose and Fired Brick Distress Inks to color the images. I inked up a cotton ball and moved in a circular motion to add color. Next, I hand cut the flowers and leaves. The leaf stamp is also from Art Blooms. I stamped the images using Rich Cocoa ink and colored the leaves using Shabby Shutters (not shown) and Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I added a little colored detail using Copic markers. Then I inked the edges of the flowers with Fired Brick and the leaves with Peeled Paint.Here is a close up of the flowers. I added an amber rhinestone to the center of each flower and some custom tinted crinkle seam binding and swirly rhinestones.
I stamped the sentiment using Rich Cocoa ink, cut/embossed using the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinder™ and S4-114 Classic Circles Large #3 die template. Then I inked the edges with Tea Dye and Fire Brick Distress Ink. I used S5-035 Parisian Accents to create the flourished circle and S5-026 Labels Twenty #3 die template to create the decorative label. Here is a close up of the sentiment. I layered the flowers and diecut using 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.
