Hope you had a lovely weekend! Mine was as usual. Getting household chores done. Yesterday, the sun decided to show up after a long time. So plenty of washings done. But more so I got a few cards done too.
Today, I am sharing a Simon Says Stamp card using the new STAMPtember Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set. I combined this new set with the previous Beautiful Flowers stamp set to make this card.
I used the large cluster of flowers and leaves from Beautiful Flowers stamp set and stamped on the edges of the panel on the long side.Then masked a few leaves and stamped the single flower and leaves on the edge of shorter side of the panel. Now the panel is beautifully framed with the flowers and leaves.
To colour the images, I used copic markers as the base colour. I picked rich fall colour tones to colour a solid base layer. Then I came in with Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils to add shading and depth to the images. I used white pencil to highlight areas and darker shade of the colour to add shading, then coming in with the lighter shade of the same colour to blend them all together. Again I added a few layers of colours. This colouring took me about an hour. I came back with copic grey marker to add shadows around the images.
Using Sakura white gelly roll pen, I added more highlights to the coloured images. Then with Sakura black glaze pen, I added some dot details around the stamped images. I seriously love the colours on the card.
To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Flowers stamp set in the middle of the panel using Simon’s intense black ink. Then I coloured the large sentiment with the same colours I used for the images and the exact same process. Copic markers as base layer, then came in with polychromos colour pencils for shading and depth. I added shadow using the grey copic marker pen.
I adhered the panel on to a maroon card base using glue. Finally added some white nuvo crystal drops to finish the card.
All the supplies used to make this card are listed below. Hope you like my card and got inspired.
