For the Blog Hop, I created a card using two products from Faber-Castell: GRIP WaterColor EcoPencils and Gelatos® Color 4ct - Yellow (Colors: Butter Cream, Lemon, Mango and Tangerine). From JustRite Papercraft, I used Antique Damask Background Stamp and Floral Vintage Labels Two Stamp Set.
I stamped the flower image three times with StazOn Jet Black ink. Then I fussy cut each flower (one entire image, one medium size and one small) to create layers.
Next color each cut layer with Faber-Castell's WaterColor Pencils. Then use a water brush to blend and soften the colors. I used 3D Foam Squares to make each layer dimensional and added Flower Soft Lavender texture in the center. Set aside to dry.
For the background, I stamped Antique Damask Background Stamp with VersaMark ink and loaded on Detailed White Embossing Powder and heat set the entire image.
I love the ombre look (graduation of color - shading of same color tones from dark to light) so when I heard about the blog hop, it was the perfect technique to try. The set had all the colors to make that easy! I added each color in quarters on the background stamp...
Then I used my mini mister and lightly sprayed over the area. Taking the paper towel, I buffed a little. The coloring was a little lighter than I liked so I added more Gelato and rubbed in with my finger for the desired look. Don't be afraid to add on or take off. It's a forgiving medium to use!
Next I cut/embossed with A2 Matting Basics A die #7 (the smallest size being #1)...
Then I cut a strip of 5 x 1⅛" purple patterned paper and cut a tail at the end. I didn't like the white edges so I penciled in with purple WaterColor EcoPencil and then blended with the water brush.
Using the sentiment from Floral Vintage Labels Two, I stamped first and then cut/embossed with Labels Four die #2 over the image. Assemble as shown in picture...
