Initially I wanted to make a one layer card but later on I decided to do something a tad different. I did a lot of masking and stamped my flowers and leaves with Antique Linen distress ink. Since I already decided that I wont go the one layer way, I stamped more leaves separately.
Next, I started colouring light to dark for this particular card. I coloured the images with Prismacolors. It took a lot of time due to the small size of petals but because it was looking so good I continued colouring.
Also, here is the list of colours for the flowers starting from the lightest PC1011, PC916, PC917, PC1003, PC1002, PC1034 and PC945. I can't list the greens since I used too many shades to make my “flicks”.
Finally I fussy cut my main image, which was a cluster of flowers and leaves along with the leaves that I stamped separately. If you are wondering why I stamped these leaves separately is because I plan to add them on a different level to the main image. As a result, my whole bouquet will give an illusion of way more dimension than there actually is.
Also note that I only stamped two leaves separately and a bunch of three as one piece. This makes just three additional pieces that I added to a bigger cluster and it made all the difference.
I placed my main image on the panel using foam tape and the other three pieces were added by glue.
You can find the enamel dots in the store HERE.
If you haven't figured out yet where I placed the three extra pieces (leaves) that I coloured, two are on the top right. I added the bunch of three at the bottom left.
This is all for today. I hope you liked my card and the technique to add more dimension just by adding a couple extra pieces. Isn't the Dahlia Blossoms Stamp Set just beautiful?
Thank you for stopping by.
