Hi there, welcome to my blog :) I have another 15 minute card sample for you today that I made for the Chocolate Baroque DT blog ( http://chocolatebaroque.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/fifteen-minute-cards.html ) a bi-monthly post to give inspiration for quick cards. I have used stamps from CB Fancy Flowers; alcohol pens, Distress inks, black Versafine ink, gold marker pen, and embossing folder.
I took a piece of white Neenah card, which is produced for colouring with alcohol pens, and stamped the larger flower in black ink. I stamped the image first so that I had a reference point to build the rest of the design on. I then placed the card in the embossing folder. I could see the flower through the folder so positioned it in the centre of the pattern and embossed the panel.
I then stamped a couple of smaller flower images in opposite corners. I just love all the detail of Chocolate Baroque stamps, and these images do not disappoint.
I started colouring the images with a couple of dark colours to provide shading. In this case I have used dark brown and crimson.
I added orange to the petals and used it to blend the other colours. I used yellow for the stamens in the middle, and two shades of green for the leaves. I used a grey pen around the images to make them pop.
I then trimmed the card and blended DI's around the edges to give a hint of colour to the embossed ivy leaves. I used a gold pen around the edge of the panel, matted it onto orange card and then layered them onto a white base card.
I stamped and embossed a sentiment in gold onto white card and die cut it into a tag. I edged the tag with gold pen, and matted it onto orange card. I added some ribbon and attached it to the card with dimensional glue. I really enjoyed making this card, I love colouring in any media and alcohol pens are a fairly new addiction for me! This design is definitely a great worker card for any occasion and any age.
Thank you very much for popping in today, I hope you enjoyed this post and will stop by again soon :)
