Hi there! How are you doing today?
Just in case you need some craft inspiration to take your mind off the fact that it’s Monday … 😉 I have a lovely floral card to show you! And it’s part of a collaboration blog hop between WOW Embossing and Studio Katia so there is plenty of wonderful cards along the hop as well as some prizes to win! Isn’t that a great start to this week!
MY FLORAL CARD WITH NO LINE COLORING
I have a floral card for you that I made with one of the beauuutiful flower images from Studio Katia’s “You’re So Sweet” stamp set. They seemed perfect for coloring with colored pencils and that is what I did – using a no line coloring method. I stamped the image with a very light dye ink that isn’t visible anymore now that I added my coloring.
I used a mixture of Caran d’Ache – Luminance Pencils and Chameleon – Color Tones Pencils. The brands are a bit different to work with and also when it comes to their prize point but I honestly like them both! You can get great results with both kind of pencils, I think!
For my background I stamped the Studio Katia “Mandala Flower” in a light mint ink and used the same ink for ink blending from the bottom of my panel. I added splatters with green ink to match the leaves from my flower image. A few of the gorgeous blue crystal embellishments picked up the color of my blossom coloring.
HEAT EMBOSSING IN CLEAR
While I chose a simple black color for my sentiment (to add a bit of contrast to the background) I heat embossed it with WOW clear embossing powder. I really find that using that glossy embossing powder on a sentiment adds just that bit of extra to a card design! Black embossing powder can get a bit messy but by choosing a black pigment ink like Versafine and WOW’s “Clear Gloss Super Fine” embossing powder I got a perfectly embossed sentiment. Here’s a close-up look of the card:
