Day 2 of OCL Sneak Peeks

Hello! Today I have a sneak peek at Thankful Flourishes that is being released from Our Craft Lounge.

I love the elegance of this set, the flower, the flourishes, the wording… Love it!! I love it so much that I wanted to keep it simple by striking for my first card. I used only black ink and only colored in the flower using Prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits. Masking was done with the flower and ‘leaves’. The 2 ‘flourishes’ I eyeballed in place and love how they look like one stamp.

Thankful Flourishes, black, white, prismacolor pencils, odorless mineral spirits

Card #2 – Color Challenge 230 of Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral (Optional), Whisper White (Optional)

This time I used the Top Note die to layer my flowers on. The flowers were stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers and a little water to reduce the color. The middle of the flowers is another stamp and is popped up. The middle flower is popped up also.
