Hello, Stamplorations Flower Panel

This is one of the easiest cards I have made. The most effort
was embossing the stamped image rather than just stamp. Of course
I never do things by halves so I embossed in white, silver and gold
and then stamp in black on watercolour paper and Copic friendly
paper so plenty more to come.

Here I cut the panel the same size as the front of the card. Stamped and
white embossed the flower panel from Stamplorations . I then coloured with
zigs, one dark pink pulling the colour out with a very light pink. No water. 
A little bit of yellow/brown in the centres.

I've gone blank on the brand for the 'hello' die (I am in the process of putting
a copy of them all into a folder with the brand name but got sidetracked onto
another project sorry. I decided to add some colour to the die cut as I have seen done
a few times with watercolour and coloured embossing. I added my colour
with Copics just picking a pale pink and darker pink and blending to white.
A few enamel dots to finish it off. I attached the vellum by just adding some double sided
dots of tape where the flower centres are so it doesn't show through.
I love how it turned out and cant wait to try some other colours. the Zigs work so
well on the front of the panel- as long as minimal water is used so the vellum doesn't warp.


Before I go don't forget we have started this months challenge over
at The Flower Challenge and its Special Occasions.
and we would love to see you there. Our first Challenge was a great success and we had 139 cards entered. How brilliant is that, it goes for most of the most and there are a fantastic collection of cards there for inspiration. If you haven't seen it yet go and check it out and if you have then you know you are just itching to do a card or two or three so off you go......

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Gorgeous card, Aileen! Love the embossed framed zinnias in pink -- so happy to see this in the STAMP gallery. (FYI - you could also link this up in the CAS Card Challenge over there -- it's anything CAS card goes with the optional color twist of purple.) Congratulations too on your challenge! I must have been hiding under a rock because this is the first I've heard of it. Bummed I missed joining the first challenge but fully intend to play in your second! Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Oh what a beautiful card! That stamp is perfect with the embossing and with the different shades of pink, especially the half tone sentiment. I love the font on that. It reminds me of my Hero Arts one, but I think it might be Altenew??? I could be so wrong! Xx

A beautiful and so gentle! I love the ombre sentiment. I have used it to try :-) Thank you for the inspiration. I want to join, but if I can find the time to prepare the card ...?
