Svitlana is here. Today, I want to share a card idea featuring an easy technique to build your own floral background.
COLORFUL FLORAL BACKGROUND
First, I white-embossed it once, covering almost the whole panel (coming from the right). And then, I filled empty areas around the panel edges.
If some elements of the tulip bunch overlapped – I brushed off the embossing powder before heat setting it.
Once I was happy with how my floral background looked, I moved on to coloring areas in between the florals. I did it using the Lagoon Watercolor Brush Marker from the Winter Wonderland Watercolor Brush Markers Set.
It's very easy to create such a background using Watercolor Brush Markers. I added some watercolor onto the panel next to a flower and then washed it out with a wet brush. Very quick and quite therapeutic!
To color the tulip heads, I used Cotton Candy and Corral Berry Dye Inks. For the smaller flowers, Warm Sunshine, Mango Smoothie, and Dark Chocolate Dye Inks were used. I used Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen Dye Inks to color the leaves.
After I colored all the card elements, I stamped the tulip details using a layering stamp set and Ruby Red Dye Ink.
To add some interest to the card, I also added some Pure White Ink Spray splatters. It helped even out some imperfections of the coloring and hide some flaws.
After that, I went ahead and created a couple of sentiment strips (white-embossed on Jet Black Cardstock) using stamp sets from the same set and popped them up onto the floral background panel.
Lastly, I foam-mounted the panel onto a white card base using the Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
I hope you liked the card idea that I shared today. Have a wonderful day!
