Morning, Only a couple more days to go until Leonie will be launching some brand new crafty goodies. Her One Day Special will be on Hochanda at 8pm on Thursday evening, I hope you will be able to tune in. It's going to be very exciting as always. I will be sharing some previews on the night so I hope you will take a look. Today I am sharing a card with the lovely stamps Leonie brought us earlier in the month.
To start with, I cut out a vase shape in copier paper to act as a mask and stencil and inked through it using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I concentrated the colour at the edges to give a rounded look.
Then I took one of the strip stamps from the collection and curved it on my block before stamping it onto the vase with black Archival ink. This gave a more realistic look and made the vase look even more 3D.
I removed the stencil to reveal the vase.
Next I used the flowers with stems from the collection to build up and fill the vase. I also added ore leaves and the flourish stamp to extend the flowers to other areas of the design.
Next I added some of the larger blooms from Leonie's collection using a mask so they appeared from behind the other flowers. I then added some of the larger leaves. Then I added my chosen sentiment, here I used one from Bee Crafty along with some butterflies from HOTP 'Dancing Wildflowers'
I then coloured my design with a selection of alcohol markers.
Finally to finish the card I backed the piece onto some light blue 'Centura Pearl' from the brights selection from Crafters Companion with some Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
