STENCIL-COLORED FLORAL CARD IDEA
I wanted to make my card background non-white, which would be a bit challenging to do using the masking technique as the floral design in question has several inside openings.
So, instead, I used the non-white Warm Sunshine Cardstock to build my card design on.
After that, I colored it by ink blending using the coordinating Captivating Blooms Coloring Stencil. I used Sea Glass, Turquoise, Persian Blue, and Starlight Dye Inks for ink blending. These inks are from the blue color family, but, since dye inks are translucent and were used over the yellow cardstock, the ink blending resulted in a green undertone.
TIP! When you do coloring or ink blending using a translucent medium (i.e. dye inks, alcohol markers, watercolor), you need to keep in mind that the color of your medium will mix with the color of the background.
For example, if I choose to use pink or red inks to color my florals, they would end up having an orange undertone. And if I used purple inks on top of yellow they could look dirty brown (as yellow and purple are complementary colors, they don't look very pretty mixed together).
After I finished coloring the floral, I added the Pure White Ink Spray splatters onto the panel for some interest.
To make the sentiment for this floral card idea, I used the Script Words 2 Die Set — it's one of my favorite die sets when it comes to die-cut sentiments.
I felt it would look better to have as much of the floral element as possible under the sentiment, so I opted for a horizontal card orientation to achieve this.
