Wonderful Day | Floral Bouquet

Hi all!  Kari with you today to share this floral bouquet card featuring the Avery Elle Floral Bouquet stamp set and its coordinating dies.  When I saw this set, I immediately fell in love with it as there are a lot of very detailed floral images out there, and I love how this one has detail, but it is simple at the same time, and that is great for those like me that don't color in floral images very often.


I thought about the different ways I could color in these beautiful flowers, and decided to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I stamped out the main image from this set and stamped it onto a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper.  I prepped my surface with a powder tool, and used my VersaMark ink to cover the entire image, and then used some Silver embossing powder, and used my heat tool to set.  

From there, I was ready to color in my images using #30 Blue, #81 Violet for the flowers, and #40 Green, #41 Light Green and May Green for the leaves, and a little Yellow Green for the buds, and middles of the flowers.  


Once I was done, and let my image dry, I added some Clear Wink of Stella shimmer pen to the flowers.  I used the coordinating die to die cut out the image, and I set it aside.  Onto the rest of the card.  I used  Scalloped Rectangles Stackables and a Circle die from a piece of Narwhal cardstock.  I need prepped the bottom right corner to emboss also in silver,  my sentiment from the same Avery Elle stamp set. I knew I was going to add some foam adhesive to this panel, so I wanted to add a bit more interest to the circle window.  So, I took my top fold A2 sized white card base, and used the Altenew Halftone Stencil and used Wilted Violet and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks to add a bit more color to tie together everything.



Even though it is Monday, hopefully this card brings a bit of happiness to your day!  Thanks so much for joining me today!  See you soon right here!
