TCC75 A Friend Loveth At All Times

Hi Friends!

It’s time for The Card Concept #75 “Boldly Graphic” Challenge!  I love this gorgeous inspiration photo that Lesley chose for the challenge and was inspired by the pink flowers as well as the black and white patterned chairs! 

I decided to create a Clean and Graphic/Mixed Media card using the Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set (NinaB Designs) from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps.  

Again, if you have not had a chance to visit the challenge sites or SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Ink the floral image from Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set using embossing ink, stamp onto white cardstock and heat emboss with black embossing powder.  Once the embossing has cooled, use a water brush to watercolor the image with dye based ink and water-based markers (Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo- all Stampin’ Up!). Fussy-cut the image and set aside.

2). Create a watercolor wash for the background on a piece of white cardstock with Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Hickory Smoke Distress Stains and add a few splatters with diluted Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. 

3). Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Peonies Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink onto the panel, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.

4). Trim a piece of white cardstock, layer onto the black card front and mount onto the white card base.  Add the layered black and white designer paper (from my stash) and mount the water-colored panel with dimensional foam.

5). Adhere the fussy-cut flower to the card front and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals along with a Sharpie® Extra Fine White Paint Pen to add highlights to the flower center.  

6). Add a few Gloss Black Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish off the card .

Thanks again for stopping by!  If you have able to join us, we would love to see your artwork in our gallery at The CardConcept!  Hugs and I hope all of you have a fabulous week!

Breathtaking! That splash of pink across the page and the shimmery flower combine to give me all sorts of gooey feelings when I look at this lovely design!

The peony is stunning! The watercolor background is a beautiful accent to the flower and the black and white DSP. Great take on our sketch. Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I love the luscious peony flower on your watercolour background. So striking. I can see the shimmer you have added, normally so hard to photograph. Fabulous Julie!
