Guest Designer Gayatri Murali Part 2

Take time to be happy card
Hello everyone, Gayatri here again as guest designer sharing with you a bright and colourful card using the Botanical Love stamp set. I LOVE the big bold flowers and leaves in this set. I decided to colour them using copic markers.
Here is my finished card.


I stamped the flowers and leaves around the edges of a white card stock panel using Memento Black Ink. I used masking technique to mask the flowers and stamp leaves around the flowers. I then coloured the images using copic markers. Absolutely love the bright vibrant colours and white space towards the centre. I wanted to keep these coloured images are highlight of the card. I stamped the sentiment also from the same stamp set in the centre. While doing that, I stamped the large sentiment a bit crooked. Yes, I do stamp my sentiment crooked most of the time. I blame my astigmatism. Lol! Anyway, I did not want to start again but I wanted to rectify it somehow. So I picked a small rectangle die and die cut the crookedly stamped sentiment off the panel. I then stamped the same sentiment on the card front, this time straight and heat embossed it. I then adhered the stamped panel on the card front using foam adhesive. Now the large sentiment is inside a window. Mistake corrected ☺  Here is a close up of the card.



Hope you are inspired to try some making technique and copic colouring using this beautiful Botanical Love stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Gayatri
