Hello! For my first set of cards in the new year, I wanted to make something special. Now I dunno whether these cards are actually special or not, but they’ll do just fine for me! 🙂
For my first card, I used Neat & Tangled Paper Cut Flowers. I stamped the flowers in Hero Arts Neon Blue ink and the leaved in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then die cut the sentiment using Paper Smooches Thanks die cut from some Brustro Iridescent gold metallic paper. I then added some Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle to the sentiment and the flower centers using Versamark (ink pad and pen). I then outlined the borders of the flowers’ interiors using Uniball Signo black gel penUniball Signo black gel pen. I also added a few dots using Uniball Signo black gel pen.
For my second card, inspired by the fact that my Ma really liked her card, where I had done some pencil coloring (here), I tried another card using pencil coloring – this time, another set of Altenew stamps and monochrome flowers.
I first stamped the flowers from Altenew Lacy Scrolls in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored them using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils. I drew the stems using Uniball Signo black gel pen. I also added a few dots using a light gre and black pencils. The sentiment, from Hero Arts It’s Your Day is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then trimmed the piece and adhered it over black card base.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
