Crafter's Companion 'Inspirers' Design Team - February Project #2

Good afternoon everyone

Well I'm here today to share the 2nd of my February Crafter's Companion Design Team projects with you, unfortunately there won't be a 3rd this month as I'm 'mummy sitting'. I'm looking after my  mum after heart surgery and can't access my crafty stuff. I did bring bits and bobs with me, but not enough to make full projects plus my time is limited.

Anyhow, on seeing these gorgeous stamps I had decided that I had to stamp and colour onto black card, and I definitely think it works .  Thanks for looking 💚

 Here's What I Did
Using matt black card I created a small side fold card. Next I cut down a piece of matt black card to size and stamped some of the flowers using Versamark ink and added clear embossing power over the top. and heat embossed it. I repeated the process by masking some of the flowers so that they would appear behind others. To make the masks I stamped the flowers onto the sticky edge of a post-it note and cut them out. When all of the flowers were added I painted them with white ink first, then when the ink was dry I coloured them with pencils. Next I stamped and embossed the sentiment with gold glitter embossing powder.

The completed panel was mounted onto the gold mirror card, and added to the card front using foam tape. To finish off I added white dots to the flowers and gold dots around the flower spray, along with a few glitter enamel dots.

These flowers look fabulous on the black card Janine, perfect masking and I love how you've coloured them... clever to use white first before colouring!
