Freshly cut flowers

I’ve teamed up with the Foiled Fox again to share a post on their blog. If you pop over there you can read all the process details for this floral card featuring a stamp and a die from Penny Black.

This stamp is called Fresh Cut and it is a rubber cling stamp of five long stem roses. I did some masking and partial stamping to fill the corner of my panel with eleven orange roses. I guess I should have added one more to have a dozen!

You might recognise the background style on this card; it is inspired by some of Jill Foster’s amazing cards for Penny Black. Because all those roses make the panel a little busy I separated the stacked die-cut words from the roses with a piece of vellum, just to make it easier to read. Don’t forget to visit the Foiled Fox blog today for all the details and while you are there browse awhile for more inspiration.

    (sigh). I’d give anything to paint like this but after the thousandth try I don’t think it’s going to happen. This is gorgeous especially with your incredible shading. I love the color palette especially on those leaves. Beautifully done.

    These eleven long stem roses are so beautiful in the orange and I love the coordinating rectangular green watercoloured panel in the background, and the strip of vellum with the orange die cut sentiment on top. A terrific card Heather. x
