Radiant Beauty

Our Design Team has been busy creating projects with the new Faerie Poppets papercrafting range!  Trena has one to share today, using the soon-to-be-released Radiant Beauty stamp set.  Se did a great job showing us that a single floral image makes a gorgeous card for any occasion!

Take a look at her card, and how she created it:

"I stamped the lovely flower image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock for Alcohol Markers. To color I used my Spectrum Noir Markers." 

"For the leaves, I scribbled DG4 onto an acrylic block and picked up color with CG2.  I worked in small areas, blending from dark to light.  For a video where you can see this palette blending technique, click here."  

"I used the same technique for the petals." 

"I used a marker to create matching embellishments.  I colored the bottoms only of some little clear plastic pieces I collected at a wedding I attended (well.....they were going to throw them away!)."  

"I also colored white ribbon to match. I taped it down first and then colored across in a single direction."

"For a finishing touch on the image, I used a glitter pen to give a little bling to the petals."

Don't forget to leave a comment to win this weekend's Friday Giveaway!  We've got a fabulous embossing folder up for grabs - head over to this post for details!

What a gorgeous card and love that you took the time to tell us how you did the shading. I am new to spectrum Noir and the coloring so that was a great help! Thanks.
