I have a couple of cards to share today. The first showcases the Floral Sentiments 2 set...
I stamped the image on Neenah Solar Crest and colored the image with Copics. After die cutting, I added a soft brown ink to the edges. I found out after creating the image that it is actually the flower on a castor bean plant. I thought it looked similar to pussy willow... so I added white Flower Soft to each blossom... I think it turned out nicely! I stamped the sentiment with Rich Cocoa ink on white card stock and die cut it before placing. Very feminine and airy... perfect to add to my card stash for the ladies in my life...
And here's the image of the stamp set itself...
I decided to go a bit more dramatic on my second card. I used the new set Floral Sentiments 3.
This time I colored the image in deep red tones (R24, R29 & R39) and the stems in rich greens (G24 & G28). I double matted the image with red and black die cuts and chose a musical DP for my primary background. I stamped the sentiment (Memento Tuxedo Black) on white CS and hand cut the banner, placing it strategically by the satin bow. I just love this color combo! I can't wait to see poppies in my yard this spring!
And here's the stamp set image...
