Loosely Lined Flowers * MFT Mid-Month Release Countdown (3)

Hi there! Welcome to a special mid-monthly release countdown by My Favorite Things. We have a bunch of beautiful flower stamps to share with you. 

Coloring this stamp was such a relaxing thing to do and flowers can be used on cards for so many occasions. 


I started by stamping the flowers on a piece of watercolor paper. I like to use Versafine Onyx black ink because it's waterproof and gives a clean and crisp result. I also used a stamping tool (in my case a MISTI) because sometimes, it's a bit tricky to get evenly stamped result with large stamps like this one. I had to stamp it a second time. 

And now for my favorite part, the coloring process. I used my Watercolor Markers by Faber Castell. It's so easy and relaxing to color with these markers. I simply added a bit of color where I wanted my shadows to be and blended the color out using a water brush. 

I went to Pinterest to look for a color combo I liked and found this light green, yellow and coral combo. I added a little bit of yellow to the coral flowers to give them a little extra. 

Because the flowers were so eye-catching, I wanted the rest of the card be super simple. I heat embossed a sentiment on a piece of heavyweight vellum and die cut a skinny banner. I cut my watercolor panel to fit on a European A6 card base and glued the panel down. I adhered the sentiment banner with two small staples.


Check out the MFT Blog for more floral inspiration! The Design Team created the most wonderful cards using the newest flower stamps.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have an wonderful day,
Nicole
