This gorgeous card uses multi color flower stenciling for those spectacular spring shades.
Today we are just wowed by these beautiful spring flowers that Sammi has made for us using multi color flower stenciling to add all those layers of color.
Sammi says “My inspiration for this card was seeing a whole field of multi-colored flowers near my new house. I loved how the petals were all different colors in the same flower.”This is the kind of thing we had in mind when we designed these layered floral stencils and we just love how Sammi has combined these bright colors for an exquisitely eye popping project. Let’s get into the making so we can try this, too!
First, Sammie cut a card sized piece of white card stock and, using Rose, Citrus and Lemon Color Fuse Inks she blended her background over the panel. She then used our Striped Cover Die to cut a piece of white card stock and using her paper trimmer, trimmed back the edges to make it a bit smaller to allow more of her blended background to show. She adhered her die cut piece to her blended panel.
She then inked up our Friends Forever stamp and stamped the floral image with black Memento ink. Using the Friends Forever stencil set and Color Fuse inks from Sets #1, #2, #5, #10 and #11, she ink blended the petals and leaves of these flowers with different colors. To enhance the perception of depth and dimension, she used the darker colors in the “valleys” as she shows here.
Here she shows how she added her brightest shades.
And here you can see how she added some blending to bridge between the deeper colors and brights for a seamless, fresh-picked look.
Sammi used the same dark and light shading on her leaves, too.
When she was done, Sammi cut out her stenciled masterpiece with our coordinating die.
For her textural banner element, Sammi cut a scrap of card stock with one of the dies from our Borders #2 set and then stamped it with our News Paper Background stamp with Fuchsia Color Fuse Ink.
Sammi added this to her card panel with some foam tape to add more depth. Then to add even more dimension, she cut some scraps of card stock with our Branches and Leaves and Flower #5 dies, ink bending shades of Color Fuse Ink from Sets #10 and #11 for a custom match. She arranged these and her die cut stenciled floral element on the card front, adhering the pieces as she went using a variety of thicknesses of dimensional adhesive.
Sammi chose her sentiment from our Poetic Peonies set and continued her beautiful color coordination by ink blending that to match. She trimmed it close, added it to her vignette and then finished this gorgeous card off with some little pink pearls.
All we can say is WOW!
