Today I have a floral card to share with you.
The flower images are from the Beautiful Day Stamp set by Altenew.
I wanted to try the pencil coloring on kraft again.
To start off I stamped the big flower outline image on my kraft card base using Memento Summer sky and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils. I then stamped the stamen only using embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold. The little flower clusters and the branchs were stamped in sand after I masked the already colored flower. I colored the little flowers in light blue with pink center. And then I added shadows in the background with a gold pencil. The leaves got some highlights in light beige. I am very happy with how it turned out.
Here is the close up.
To make the sentiment part was a mega struggle this time. Because I had the February Altenew challenge in mind I wanted to add black to the sentiment. At first I made a black strip with gold heat embossed sentiment. But it didn't look fine on the card. In the end I decided to go with the gold embossed strip and the gold heat embossed sentiment on black and vellum. I'm still not sure whether it was a good choice or not. It might have been better simply to stamp the sentiment in black without anything.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great day!
