CARD DETAILS

This card started on a sheet of light pink cardstock. Can you imagine? I used Hero Arts Peony color as my base and layered all other colors on top using embossing powder, Copic markers, and Polychromors colored pencils.

First, I heat embossed Daffodil Field background in Detail White embossing powder. You can try the technique with other stamps and on other colors of cardstock. I trimmed the background to a more manageable size, to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2”, this will make the front of my A2 card.

I’m going for pink daffodils, green leaves, and light blue, almost blue-gray background. You might be thinking – this is not going to work on this paper, but I promise you – it does.

Whatever color you want your flowers to be – use that color of paper for the background. I want the daffodils to be pink, so I am starting with pink. If you want yellow daffodils, start with yellow.

First, I color the daffodils. I flick the RV10 marker onto the base of the petals to add shading. And RV02 to add a touch darker pink. Next, I make the tips of the petals lighter pink, I achieve that by applying a white color pencil. It doesn’t make my paper white, like the embossing powder does, but it does lighten that pink color a bit.

Next, I use a light and a dark pink pencil to add detail to my petals. The darker pink is Light Purple Pink and the lighter pink is Pink Madder Lake, both Polychromos from Faber Castell.

Next, I use YG03 to color leaves and stems green. In this instance, I am using the Copic marker to apply the initial layer of color. I am not using Copics to blend, and shade. I use my colored pencils for that instead – Earth Green Yellowish, Permanent Green, Permanent Green Olive, and Chromium Green Opaque. This works with other pencils and other colors.

Next, I color the background using a B000 marker and this completes my background.

You can go as detailed as you like when coloring flowers, or just add simple strokes of color. Either way – this is a beautiful stamp and these images already look gorgeous. The background cardstock color provides a stunning base for the flowers and that allows us to spend a lot less time coloring them. Of course, you can use white cardstock as a base, but that would require a lot more time and ink from your markers to color it.

From here you can use your favorite sentiments to complete the card. I used Simon’s pre-printed sentiment strips from the All Things Happy Remix and just added that onto the background with foam adhesive.

Have fun stamping!

    1. This is just beautiful. Thanks for all the wonderful details. I’m so ready for Spring and the daffodils that pop up all over the place. I’m anxious for this stamp to arrive on my doorstep.

    1. Simply GORGOUS! I am amazed you started with pink paper and the background looks light blue! This just screams SPRING to me! Just what I needed today (-2F and 2 inches of snow).

    1. Thinking of you and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during these uncertain times in your country. Stay safe.
