Bloom

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

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.

Challenges: 



Thank you for stopping by! 
Have a great day!

Every time I visit your blog, my jaw hits the desk...and this is no exception! Your card is absolutely GORGEOUS, Tae Eun! I love how you colored the bloom with lighter areas in all the right places, and how you highlighted your leaves! Fabulous die cut sentiment, too! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!
