So Suzy Button Flowers

Hi Everyone,

I want to share a card with you I made with those pretty flowers from the new So Suzy release. If you are like me and not that good at coloring, you could try this with your flower stamps. 

I used both button flowers, there is a right and a left one.

I stamped the flowers randomly on Kraft with Versamark,

heat embossed them

and colored them with white paint and a water brush.

Added s faint grey shadow for dimension

Then I heat embossed the sentiment and underlaid it with vellum. Added it with foam tape for dimension

I still thought it need a little something. I just got those wonderful dragonfly die cuts from my blogging friend Doerthe from Flo's Habseligkeiten - one of them flew right onto the card!

I "treated" it with Stickles beforehand.

Hope you liked this!

Okay, now I have a new technique to add to my ever increasing list. The white paint really makes those lovely flowers POP on the kraft. Ususally I have trouble getting white intense enough to show up but this works like a charm. Gorgeous card.

Absolutely stunning Cornelia. The flowers look so dimensional on your card with the white on the kraft! Just beautiful!

Bobby said...

For not being good at coloring you nailed this one, Cornelia. The soft white makes the flowers look transparent and the gray shading gives them so much dimension.

Die Libelle macht sich auf den weißen Blumen wirklich gut.
Weiß angemalt habe ich noch nie etwas, sollte ich mal probieren, auch wenn ich nicht solche tollen Stifte habe. Vielleicht geht das auch mit meinen Buntstiften, mal sehen.
Liebe Grüße

Was heißt hier "nicht gut im Kolorieren"? Die Blümchen sind doch koloriert und die sehen richtig gut aus. Ich bin ganz begeistert von der Karte! Vielen lieben Dank fürs Mitspielen bei der Stempelküche-Challenge.
