IO Challenge- Flowers For You

Well, the cherry blossoms have come and gone, and the dogwoods are just starting to bloom. I can't tell you how much I am enjoying Spring. Today the IO design team is posting cards featuring flowers, and I can't wait to see what everyone creates. Bring on the flower power!

Instructions for my card:

Pink notecard
White cardstock- 5 ½” x 3”
Kraft cardstock- 5 ½” x 2 ½”

Impression Obsession Wildflower D8998
Impression Obsession Cover a Card Tapestry CC024

Colorbox Chalk Pink Pastel

Other Materials:
FRV1 Fluorescent Pink

  • Stamp flower three times with Versamark ink onto kraft cardstock
  • Emboss with white powder
  • Color the flowers with Copic markers
  • Let the ink dry
  • Add a second layer of color with markers to add a bit of shading.  Important…just add a bit of color here and there.  Don’t cover the first layer of color completely.
  • Stamp background onto pink notecard using Mega Mount. 
  • Layer the pieces of the card.

Beautiful. Great directions. I wouldn't have thought to go back over with colour a second time. Great effect.
