Coloring on Dark Card Stock - SSS Beautiful Flowers 2

For today’s card I used two of the products from the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember release. I used the Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set and the Plank background cling.


I started out by stamping two of the floral images from the stamp set onto a piece of Gina K Plum Punch card stock with Versamark ink. I heat embossed them with a white embossing powder.


I colored the flowers in using my Prismacolor pencils. For the yellow portions I first went over the petals with my white pencil. I then used the colors PC940, PC916, and PC1002. For the centers of the flowers I used PC1028. The stems and leaves were colored with PC912 and PC1006. I fussy cut the flowers out with some scissors.


For the background I used the Simon Says Stamp Plank background cling. I stamped it with Versamark ink onto a piece of Gina K Plum Punch card stock and embossed it with a clear embossing powder. I then popped up the flowers onto the background with foam tape.


For the sentiment I took the stamp which says “Thanks” and stamped it onto Gina K Slate card stock with Versamark ink. I embossed it with white embossing powder. Next I used Gina K Connect glue to adhere the sentiment to some vellum and I cut the vellum down leaving a border around the sentiment strip. I popped that up in the card. To finish up the card I randomly went over some of the planks on the background with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.
