Belle

The zigs & zags stencil has popped up again today as a background for this die cut and watercoloured flower. I applied deco transfer gel directly to my card base (neenah solar white 110lb) then ran it through my minc with white foil. The result is a subtle chevron background. I wanted my flower to match the white card base exactly so I used the same neenah solar white which meant I did not add much water at all when blending my zig pens after stamping. I used a mix of blue, pink and purple and a blue/green combo on the leaves and stem then just a damp brush to blend with water. I made sure the blending was dry before stamping the black centre several times then used the co-ordinating die to cut out the flower plus a white foam one to pop it up over the background.

The little black banner was die cut with one of the dies from the PB ‘pocket full’ die set. I have pulled out all my little label, banner and tag dies from different sets and grouped them together so I can quickly cut the right size for a sentiment. This sentiment from the handy ‘banner sentiments’ set is embossed in white powder.

  1. Ahh so you can put the Zigs right on the stamps. I have been struggling with the slapstick stamps and what medium to use.

      Yes, you can put zigs directly on the stamps, tombows, distress and memento markers. Because of the real brush on the zigs it feels a bit odd applying the ink but it does work.

    I love that chevron background on which you have used the white foil Heather, and the bright and beautiful flower goes perfectly and the white on black sentiment banner finishes it so prettily. x

  3. The colours on this flower are so pretty, what a beautiful card 🙂
