More Spring Flowers
This was a bit of an experiment, there have several designer using Polychromos and singing their praises well I've been using them for years. They are using a feather technique which you can do with copics too. I wondered whether I could colour a flat image but to colour to give it some depth. Not sure I've managed it but still please how it turned out.
I first used the Simon Says Stamp More Spring Stamp, for a softer finish I used a Memento Grey Flannel inkpad and of course used the pencils. Once done I used the the Simon Says Stamp More Spring Flowers dies to cut them out.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Moroccan Tile Stencil but used it to emboss with. I cut out the Simon Says Stamps Birthday Script die with gold card. It was then placed my flowers using the CAS(e) this sketch 269 to inspire my card. Once I was happy I stuck them down and trimmed round the card and then added a bit of gold round the edge.
I still had a large white space in the middle and I couldn't leave it and I cut the Simon Says Stamp Flickering Butterflies in gold. The larger butterfly I raised but the tiny ones I stuck fully down.
I think it would be interesting if I made the same card but layering the flowers which is really my thing, will have to put that on my list to do.
