The Flower Challenge #11 - Background Stamping REMINDER

Hello all! 

It's already time for a reminder card for our August challenge at The Flower Challenge
You have still 10 days to enter your projects using background stamping technique! 

For today's card I used one of the stamp sets which I purchased as I started card making two years ago. It is from Inkadinkado and is called Flower Flourishes. The 5 stamps in the set are all beautiful swirly flower clusters. I chose one of them and made my background.

I started by heat embossing the floral cluster on the center of my watercolor panel in white pearl EP, and repeated this until the entire panel was filled with floral clusters. I then colored the panel in Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Broken China Distress Oxide inks using wet on wet coloring technique. I left the top right corner not colored. I then colored the small flowers with Ciopic markers. I took the colors from the background. I narrowed down the panel and foam mounted it on a dark gray cardbase.

You can see the heat embossed background better in the picture below!

The sentiment is from the New Day Card Kit by Altenew. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted it onto the card. To finish off I scattered some pretty sequins.

Thank you so much for looking!
Hope to see your projects in the gallery at The Flower Challenge.

A gorgeous rainbow of flowers, which is just so pretty! Didn't know you could use Copics on watercolour card - that's one I will have to try! xx

Hi TaeEun,

I love that card, I first thought that's a background stamp. I need to check my stash for something I can use similarly.
