Hello friends! This is Yana and I hope you are having a fabulous week!
You have probably already seen the WPlus9 March 2017 release and I’m excited to share some more inspiration using the Modern Petunias stamp set.
When my hubby and I lived in Ukraine (we recently moved to Phoenix) we would always have a pot of gorgeous petunias bloom on our balcony all the way through summer. Here’s a photo I found from Summer 2016:
So as soon as I spotted the Modern Petunias stamp set I felt immediately inspired to create! Petunias come in a variety of colors and even patterns - white, pink, purple, yellow, even black. If you have trouble visualizing them - search for petunias on Pinterest, I always find this to be very helpful.
To create this card I first stamped flowers and leaves using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and cut the images out using the companion dies. I went with Intense black as it’s an alcohol marker friendly ink and I wanted to do coloring using Copics.
I used just a handful of colors - RV14, RV13 and RV10 to color the flowers and YG67, YG17 and YG03 for the leaves.
After heat embossing the “Thanking Of You” sentiment in gold embossing powder onto Oatmeal cardstock, I also heat embossed additional flowers and leaves onto the background to add some interest to my card and "spotlight" the colored images.
I foam mounted flowers and a few leaves and used glue to adhere the rest. I also heat embossed the edge of my main panel to give it a nice gold finish and later foam mounted it onto an A2 top folding card.
Lastly, I embellished my card using clear droplets in small and medium sizes. Have fun stamping!
