Hello friends! I have a photo tutorial to share today. I am not really sure what my style is exactly, but I have been told that I have a tendency to layer. So I thought I would share my layering process with you. :) No mind you, I kind of wing it and it is definitely a work in progress as I go.
I knew I wanted to use February's Layered Dahlia set because I am drawn to flowers.
I wanted to create a graphic background that wasn't too busy but would compliment my flowers. I used the Metallic Karin Brushmarkers, Washi tape and Post It tape. After my 3 colors were dry, I splattered additional flecks of color using a paintbrush and watered down water colors in black and white.
I removed the Washi tape and Post It tape and had these 3 graphic, metallic stripes. I stamped my flowers with a watercolor friendly ink, Black Versafine. They were water colored with the Karin Brushmarkers. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves. I added a few white highlights with a white gel pen.
I decided I needed a bit of white space so the flowers would pop a bit against the graphic background. I used the new Hexagon dies.
I stamped the sentiment in black.
I layered the flowers over the hexagon dies.
I used the 3D Foam Squares to pop up the flowers.
I love using string on my cards. Especially with flowers. It just give it a little extra somethin' somethin.'
I seem to use some type of gem, pearl, or rhinestone on most of my cards too. I used Sparkletz and Glossy Accents to adhere them.
I used the new Criss Cross Gingham Background stamp to add as the bottom layer of the card.
Here is a last look at the finished card. Please let me know if you have any questions! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
