|The flower was a test piece that found its way onto the front of a card!|
I stamped the flower and leaves in the white craft ink and allowed it to dry (very important step which I speeded up with my heat tool!). Using a soft, circular motion with the white watercolour pencil, I added white to the areas I wanted to be the lightest.
Since I wanted to maintain a lot of control this time, I used a small brush and a little bit of water rather than my trusty aqua painter. I kept the brush just damp and pulled the white down towards the darker areas. Once I'd finished doing that, I checked the tones and added a few highlights with the watercolour pencil where I felt it necessary (mainly around the centre of the flower). I didn't (and don't) feel it's quite right but I couldn't spend any more time and I think it's sufficient.
|The depth provided by Stampin' Dimensionals adds more interest|
I added a layer of Urban Underground paper to my black card and adhered my flower panel to the centre.
Next, I stamped the banner from Banners For You in Basic Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and added the greeting from the hostess stamp set, Gift of Love. I cut it out with the matching Bunch of Banners framelit and adhered it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
|A simple but matching interior for the card|
Inside the card I quickly stamped the flower and leaves in one corner with Basic Black ink.
