By combining various stamps, Julie created this gorgeous card filled with flowers. With the Phlox as the centerpiece.
Cut a piece of purple card stock to fit on the card blank. Cut a slightly smaller piece of white card stock to leave a narrow purple border but don’t fix in place yet.
Using the white card panel, ink through the fern mask using the Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink pad using a sponge. Stamp the phlox image in the centre of the white card using the Twilight ink pad. Stamp two further stems at slightly different heights on either side. Colour in the flowers and leaves with alcohol markers or medium of your choosing.
Stamp the silhouette sprays in Rain Forest and Morning Mist inks – use second generation stamping to give a more faded look with the Rain forest ink. (Ink the image and stamp first onto a piece of scrap paper and then stamp onto the image panel.) Ink the edges of the panel with Twilight Ink and then fix onto the purple card mat.
Add a piece of tied ribbon to the top of the panel, stamp sentiment onto fishtail tag, mount onto foam pads and add to the bottom of the panel. Fix the floral panel to the card blank, then finish off by adding liquid pearl drops to the silhouette stems and flower centres.
