Hi Friends! It’s EK, and today I am back with a hand colored card featuring the one of the new Beautiful Blooms stamp sets from Sonia and Diane. I am just loving this stunning design with it’s loose sketchy lines and realistic look.
Step One: Using an alcohol marker friendly ink, stamp the large bird and sentiment onto a trimmed piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Color the image with an alcohol marker. I used copics. Around the edges of the cardstock, blend a dark blue water soluble ink. I used Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire. Splatter the edges with clean water to create droplets.
Step Three: Die cut the image with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.
Step Four: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the focal image onto a piece of dark blue cardstock. Adhere both of these pieces to an A2 card frame.
Step Five: Add a couple of dollops of Craft Drops in Clear Transparent around the sentiment.
