It's Kelly here and I'm super excited about today's card. why?
These flowers remind me more of Summer than Spring but I love all flowers so I'm good with it. :)
I actually started this card on Periscope because I was in the mood to color flowers. These Crokisses are such fun flowers to color! I thought they would look super pretty in a wreath.
I used a circle die to trace a light pencil mark onto my card base. I stamped my flowers and leaves using Copic safe markers and then erased my pencil line. This step is especially important because if you put Copic marker over pencil you cannot erase. Believe me I've tried :) Once my color was done I added some details with a white gel pen before outlining all the images with a black pen. I stamped the sentiment directly over top of the design and then used my white gel pen to outline it. For a bit of added contrast I stamped the second portion of the sentiment on black cardstock and heat set it in white.
If you're going for a one layer look outlining your sentiment with a white gel pen can really help it pop of the page. Speaking of that white gel pen it's awesome for adding details to your stamped images and changing up their look.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
