Hi there, I hope your week has gotten off to a lovely start!
Technique Tuesday is celebrating their May release today with a blog hop. If you arrived from Natalie’s blog, you’re right on track! If you’d like to start from the beginning, please visit the Technique Tuesday blog.
Today I’m sharing a Copic-colored floral using the Sending Roses stamp set* and coordinating die. I was inspired recently by a rose that I saw in Sebastopol, CA. Sebastopol is a very cute town and has a lovely little main street but the rose that I saw was in an unlikely place, growing at the back of a building near some makeshift parking posts. The vibrant yellow-oranges and corals really stuck in my head so I decided to try to recreate those colors on this card.
I started by stamping the floral image in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. I started by adding Y08 and Y18 to the insides of the petals, and YR02 (the darkest color) and E02 to the edges. Then I used Y17 to close the gap and went back with each of the five colors to blend them into each other.
I colored the leaves with YG11, YG25, G07, and G17 and then used the coordinating die to cut out the image.
For the background, used a foam blending tool to blend Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide ink onto a 4bar size piece of Neenah Solar White. I concentrated the color at the bottom left of the card and then faded out to white at the top right corner where I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. Then I trimmed an eighth of an inch of each side of the panel.
To assemble the card, I used foam tape to adhere the floral onto the ink-blended panel, and then adhered that panel onto a 4bar sized card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
