Flowers again

Hello everyone!

Welcome back! For my second card today I am sharing another flower-ish card. I just can’t get enough of them right now –  since they aren’t really blooming outside yet and I am so ready for them to color up the world again I am making as many flower cards as possible. So I used the beautiful roses from the Flowers Geranium and Roses stamp set again:

Here’s the full card – and as you can see I went with very soft colors.

After heat embossing the image with white embossing powder onto watercolor paper and coloring it in – will tell you more about that step a bit further down in this post – I covered the image with paper and stamped the Letter Background stamp with yellow ink to fill up the background a bit.

Next I added the frame. This is from the Granar i ram “God Jul & Gott Nytt Ar” stamp. I’ve cut it apart so I could use the frame and the christmas trees with the saying seperately. I still can put them back together if I need or want to. But with doing this I have more options to use the frame. I’ve done this with quite a few stamps I own and doing it the first time was really hard. But it gets easier 😉 – and so far I’ve never regretted having it done.

And here are the flowers. As mentioned did I heat emboss them with white embossing powder. Usually I use Copics to color images in – and for more detailed images I have to stick to them because I won’t get a good result with watercolors. But with images like those roses I can handle the Distress Inks – and they are what I’ve used here. I went with Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Broken China.

In the end I’ve added a few green Enamel Dots and a small banner with a saying stamped on.

Have a happy spring time!

Hugs, Kathrin
