Hey peeps. Technique Tuesday March Release Blog hop is in full swing. Products are now available to all of you in the Technique Tuesday shop. I’ve had such a great time playing around with a few of the stamp sets for this month. Let me share with you what I’ve made.
For my first card I used the Fresh Peonies stamp set. I am a huge fan of floral images and this one was so pretty to color. Stamping it on gray tone paper really make the image pop on my card panel. I no-line colored the image with Faber Castell polychromo pencils. I’ve listed the colors below in case you would like to create with the same colors.
Flower petals: 129, 123, 133, 274 and 101
Leaves: 174, 170 and 101
Next I splattered on some white gouache to add some interest to the card. I then trimmed out the panel with a stitched rectangle die and stamped a sentiment. I layered this panel with black card stock and some white stitching down the left side. For my card base I used Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock.
Here’s a closeup of these beautiful peonies. I can totally see this image watercolored for a softer look or even heat embossed.
Now it’s time to hop around to the other design team members and participants blogs.
