Hope In Your Heart


Hello friends!

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new Velvet Blossom die and the Small Posh Outline die. You know when I first saw the Posh Outline dies, I immediately thought of poinsettias, but I have yet to use this die for that. I have used it as a summer flower and now I'm using it for the leaves for my flower. A very versatile die that one :)


I first watercolored a background for my flowers using different shades of blue, green and a touch of yellow. I let that dry and stamped the sentient from Memory Box in black ink. I cut the flower petals out of blue card stock and added some shading with my Copic markers  before assembling them with Mono Adhesive.  After they were all put together I added the white centers and a few dots with my white gel pen.



I next cut out the leaves from the Small Post outline die using a piece of watercolor paper that I had already lightly watercolored with green paint and let dry. I adhered the leaves to my watercolored panel with glue dots and then glued the flowers on top of those with foam tape.  I added a few clear sequins and lightly brushed some Wink of Stella on the petals of the flowers for shine. 



I got the light right in the last photo so you can see where the Wink of Stella is. I didn't cover the whole petals, just a few strokes in the center of the petals. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the Poppystamps blog! Hope you have a great day!
