I created this card using the lovely Mosaic Flower stamp. A fabulous stamp for creating easy projects as the background has already been done for you. I also used a pretty background paper from Crafty Individuals (Travels in Italy).
The theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge (Monday) this week is ‘Resist It’ so I have entered this one.
Yay – I made the Designer Spotlight on the Challenge with this one – yay xxx.
I stamped the Mosaic Flower onto the background paper and onto a scrap of stamping card with Versamark Ink and heat embossed using WOW Embossing Powder (White). The flower buds were cut out ready to decoupage. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Wish Flower stamp.
I brushed a little Peacock Feathers Distress Ink over the sentiment to make it stand out more from the background (the embossing resists water based inks). The panel was edged with alcohol ink pen to frame.
Flowers and stems were coloured with watercolour pens and overlaid with a bit of yellow alcohol pen (note: this tints the white embossing). The cut out buds were lightly shaped and glued onto the card front using 3D glue gel for added depth.
