WonderlandPosted: March 8, 2019
I’m collaborating with the Foiled Fox again and I’m thrilled to say there is a giveaway involved! With all the new flower stamps appearing and hopefully real flowers not too far behind we thought it would be fun to have a ‘Fave Flowers’ themed giveaway;. I’ll keep posting flowery cards here on the blog and let you know some of my favourites.
To enter the giveaway all you need to do is let me know your favourite flower in the comments below and you will be entered to win one of two $25 gift certificates from the Foiled Fox online store.
Poppies are a favourite of mine and if I found one this colour it would definitely be a hit. The ones I’ve had in my garden have all been orange, although now I think about it, I haven’t seen them the last few summers. If they need special attention you can be sure they didn’t get it! These poppies are from the Altenew set ‘Wonderland‘ which has quite a few poppy images, large, medium and small. I stamped on hot pressed watercolour paper in nocturne ink then embossed with clear powder. I did the large poppy first then masked it with the co-ordinating stencil mask before stamping the smaller poppies either side. The stencil masks are a great idea especially for someone like me who does not like to fussy cut. Once all the embossing was done I painted the flowers and background with Altenew watercolour paints.
Rather than leave the panel flat I die cut a square from the centre and from a piece of black foam so I could pop it up on the card front. I added a sentiment from the same set embossed in white on black cardstock. I’m looking forward to hearing about your favourite flowers and stamping some more myself. Make sure you pop over to the Foiled Fox blog for more details on this card and another chance to comment and enter the giveaway.
