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

Hello and happy Friday everyone! 

Today I have a floral card to share with you. It's time for a reminder post for the current Flower Challenge: Use Your Latest Stamps or Dies. 

I used again one of the Anniversary Release items of The Ton, Smiling Cosmos

I'm enjoying The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin. I love to participate in this challenge, especially because it gives me a great opportunity to try something new. So this card has started with an experimental coloring in white on black paper. 

I stamped the lady from Born Classy stamp set by The Ton in Hampton white pigment ink and colored her in a white Prismacolor pencil. I found a lot of gorgeous sketches of dresses in white on dark paper on Pinterest and was inspired by them.

I stamped the cosmos cluster from Smiling Cosmos set in an embossing ink on the lower part of the panel and white heat embossed it. I colored the floral image using Stardust gel pens. To make the color brighter I filled the image with white Prismacolor pencil before I went with the glitter gel pens. 

I added some dots using a white gel pen on the dress and between the flowers and also using a clear glitter gel pen on the dress and on the hair to add more shine. The little rose in her hand is also from Born Classy stamp set. 

I splattered white opaque ink on the upper area of the panel and let it dry. 

The die cut sentiment was cut using Sweetheart Word Plate Die (The Ton), which is also new to me. I cut it from the colored panel and also from some pink fun foam to raise the sentiment. I cut the front panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die , glued it on a pink cardbase and added the die cut sentiment. The "YOU ARE" from Basic Labels set was white heat embossed on some black cardstock and foam mounted onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers Round Confetti

The stardust gel pens work very well on black paper and the base coloring using a white pencil makes a huge difference!

And don't forget to link up your creations made using new floral goodies in our gallery :)! 

Have a happy weekend!

This is beautiful TaeEun and the white pencilled figure really stands out against the black and love the added splattering. The Cosmos flowers frame her and look sp pretty in those soft springlike colours, and the hidden die cut sentiment adds something special to finish the design along with the confetti. x

Oh TaeEun, this is gorgeous, love the sweet image of this girl, with her white dress, oh my goodness, how beautiful it looks with the black background.
And your Cosmos flowers add just the right amount of color and interest with the sentiment die cut like that.
Beautiful job teammate.

Oh my, TaeEun. You never cease to amaze me. The dimension you achieved with the flowers in front of the lady and the ethereal feeling with the see-through skirt and spatters are magnificent.
