Painter's Vase - Penny Black

Hello everyone! 

Today I have a couple of cards to share with you. I had a blast playing with a new cling stamp set from Timeless collection by Penny Black, called Painter's Vase (40-672). Also I used the sentiments from Grateful Sentiments set (30-547) for these thank you cards.
Painter's Vase (40-672) includes a beautiful bouquet and a round vase stamp in brushstroke style. 

On my first card I simply gold heat embossed the bouquet on a alcohol inked background. 

Before I started making the card itself, I tried some arrangements on some printer paper to pick one I liked. I used the sample as my guide while I colored the background.

To create the background I applied lots of blending solution on a Ranger Alcohol ink cardstock panel and dropped Raspberry, Flamingo, Shell Pink, Valencia and Sunshine Yellow on it and blended the colors by blowing. I left the upper part uncolored, only splattered some pink ink.

After the alcohol ink colored panel was completely dry I started heat embossing the bouquet image from  Painter's Vase (40-672) and a delicate branch image from Floral Silhouette (30-563) in gold as shown in the picture.

I heat embossed the thank you sentiment from Grateful Sentiments set (30-547) directly on the panel in black. The small sentiment was white heat embossed on a black strip and foam mounted onto the panel.

I finished off the card by scattering some gold and iridescent sequins.

For the second card I watercolored the image of Painter's Vase (40-672). 

To start off I stamped the vase first in Tumbled Glass DI on a Canson watercolor paper panel. After masking the vase I stamped the bouquet image partially in Scattered Straw and the rest in Tattered Rose DI.

To watercolor the image I used Zig brush markers. As it is a brushstroke image the shading is already stamped and you can follow it while coloring. I didn't do any fancy coloring, just applied the colors and blended it out using a clear glitter pen. I stamped a branch image from Floral Silhouette (30-563) on the vase in Tumbled Glass DI to add some more interest.

After coloring was completed I stamped the sentiment from Grateful Sentiments set (30-547) in Onyx black ink on the colored panel. I then cut a rectangle frame from a silver cardstock and a border from some vellum which covers the outside of the frame. 

I adhered the colored panel flat on a white cardbase, glued the vellum border on it and foam mounted the silver frame. To finish off I added black stamen using black glaze pen on the center of the flowers and some clear and iridescent sequins onto the card. 

Thank you so much for looking my cards :)! Hope you like them!

I'm entering my first card into SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes!

How different they are TaeEun, and I love the bright alcohol ink colours as the background to the gold embossed flowers, and then the much softer tones of the second with the more traditional watercolour look, and I love the wy you have framed it. x

Two amazing totally different cards. I love them both, very keen on the idea of alcohol ink and gold embossed flowers, so eye catching. And of course the second looks like something you have drawn and painted, no line is just perfect here. xx Aileen
