For this card I wanted a leafy background. Ordinarily I like creating backgrounds with stamps. But for this one I had the green card stock that is cut out(? I'm not sure how to describe it) I've been hoarding this and some others for years and finally decided it was time to use it.
So I trimmed a piece down and glued it over a lighter green piece of card stock so it would pop. I used a stitched mat to die cut this piece down to a smaller size. I stamped the monkey, the bananas and the sentiment onto some kraft card stock and coloured the images in with Prisma coloured pencils. I adhered the kraft piece to the green background and then adhered the green piece onto an acetate card base.
I hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday wherever you are. Today at Technique Tuesday we are celebrating Women and Mothers. I am sharing a card I made that could be given to a special woman in your life for just about and occasion.
This card featured the Beautiful Narcissus flower stamp set. I stamped the image onto some smooth white cardstock and then cut it out with the matching die. I then coloured it in with copic markers. I watercoloured the background onto some watercolour paper. Next I cut a gold scalloped frame and cut the watercolour panel down to fit behind it. I adhered the flower onto the watercolour panel and popped it up onto an embossed card base with some foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment onto a little die cut and adhered it onto the front.
