Hi friends, it’s almost the end of July and that means the last mini new release for Whimsy Stamps this month! I enjoyed making this card with its tropical vibe and it was quite easy to create!
Making the Card
This card is an A2 sized card measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. I used the new Tropical Floral Background Stamp, I felt I need some tropical colours. I started by heat embossing the flowers on my panel, I used Wow embossing powder.
I then ink blended Distress Oxides on my panel. Some of which being Patina and Kitch Flamingo. I then watercolored the flowers. I saw this technique used by Nichol Spohr, I really liked it! I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color them. The colors included, bright yellow, light blue, pale green, light carmine, olive green, and Eco Line Brush Pen in pastel rose. For The sentiment I die cut the new Love and You are word dies out of black cardstock. I think the large scripty writing is so beautiful!
I cut my floral panel down just a little smaller than the A2 size and I cut a piece of black cardstock to an A2 size and glued my floral panel to it. I wanted to have a little black boarder just to keep balance with the black sentiment. I adhered the panel to my card base, I did add some eggshell pearls for a little interest, and I had a lovely tropical floral card.
