The Flower Challenge #29 - Use Your Latest Stamps or Dies

Hello, my crafty friends! 

Hope you had a restful weekend and are having a wonderful start into the new week! 
Today I have a floral card to share with you! A new challenge has started at The Flower Challenge. Our theme for February is Use Your Latest Stamps or Dies

I have used one of The Ton's Anniversary Release items, Happy Place. This stamp set is all about reading but has also beautiful peony flowers along with books! 

I started off by stamping the big book decorated with peony flowers on Neenah solar white cardstock in copic friendly Caviar Hybrid Ink by The Ton. I left the stamp on the MISTI tool and stamped it again on a white panel to cut it out.

I colored the image using Copics. The big flower was colored in RV11, 13,14,17 and 19. For the small one I used RV52, 63, 66 and 69. I colored the leaves in YG colors and the book in some E and WG colors. I stamped the small book image on a separate white cardstock, colored it with Copics and fussy cut. I covered all the image with clear glitter and set them aside.

To make the front panel from which I cut out the stamped image, I white heat embossed Bare Tones background stamp on it. As you can see I was clumsy and moved the panel while pressing it on the stamp so that the dots are getting bigger towards the right bottom corner. So note to myself: Use the MISTI tool next time :) !

I inkblended Soft Garden and Cali Blue on the lower half of the panel. The panel with the colored image was mounted flat on a white cardbase and the front panel was foam mounted on it. I then added the sentiment, also from Happy Place set, which is white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock. I adhered the small book using foam adhesive and added three Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins to finish off the card.

Hope I could inspire you with my card to play along with us!

This is a beautiful image with the books and the peony flowers TaeEun and the Bare Tones stamp used for the background is plain enough so that it does not conflict with the images in the foreground. I love the white on black sentiment too. x

Wow your use of color is phenomenal. The flower in the first ecample looks like I could just pick it off the card. I like that you showed other ways to use the stamp. Thank you for sharing your talent. Tricia Podmore
