This month's Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog theme is Floral theme. Trena made this amazing card using the Sheena Douglass - Paint Fusion Stamp Set - Tulip!
Next, she stamped the flower images over the sky, now worrying about overlap since she was going to paper piece over the base. She stamped the images a second time onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.
Next she colored with Distress ink pads and a stylus tool, blending colors by lightly building color directly on the cardstock. Starting with the lightest color, she colored the entire image. Then she added the darker color and darkest color, then came back in and blended with the lightest color. She colored both the base and pieces to be cut out. You don't need to worry about staying inside the lines for the images since they will be cut out.
She colored the stems with Spectrum Noir Markers, CG1 and CG2.
Distress ink pads used:
leaves: shabby shutters, forest moss
pedals: mustard seed, spiced marmalade, fired brick
After cutting out the pieces, She edged them with a black water-based marker and attached the pieces at bottom portion of the image. After it dried, she bent them up. This adds wonderful dimension to a single layer base.
