Neat & Tangled Guest Designer Post- Gardenia Blooms

Neat & Tangled Gardenia Blooms_3

Hello and happy Friday!

It’s Lydia here with you today and I’m so happy to be sharing another card I created for my guest designer post over at Neat & Tangled.

Today I have more flowers for you today but I have used them a little differently than they were designed for.

So I first cut a panel that I wanted to do my stamping on I found this was the best (and easiest) way to get my flowers positioned. I inked up the two flowers on the top of Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card stamp with a really light ink, I wiped the ink away from everywhere else apart from the two flowers before stamping this down into one of the corners. I did this again and stamped the image into the opposite corner.

I then created a mask for these flowers and placed it on top of my stamped images before inking up the larger of the two flowers using the same ink. I wiped off the ink from everywhere apart from the one flower and stamped this over the masked flowers so it trailed down the side of the card panel. I repeated this process so both flower clusters were equal on either corner.

Once I was happy with my stamping I set to work colouring. I used Copic markers and then added pencils over the top to get lots of depth and shade to the floral images. When finished I added a sentiment from the same set and was very happy when I found that it fit perfectly into the white space between the floral clusters.

To finish I matted the stamped panel onto a piece of peace card leaving a fine coloured border around my card layer and sprinkled on some clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit and feel inspired.
