Firstly I coloured the outlined image in using Stampin' Write Markers and blender pens. I am quite happy with the result.
The next card I stamped the petal card in a mirror image of itself on white card stock and made three separate flowers. I coloured these in using an aqua pen and ink pad, I layered the colour to give depth and dimension to the petals. I stamped the leaves on River Rock card stock and coloured them in with Not Quite Navy ink. I then stuck the flowers and leaves to the base, placed little 1/2 inch circle punch centres in Rose Red to the middle of each flower and embossed the piece using the Sizzix Square Lattice embossing folder. This gives a great effect - I call it the kitchen towel embossing folder as the texture reminds me of paper towels.
I was surprised at how nice this sweet colour combination worked. Gotta love the Stampin' Up! Colour Coach - the best little investment you can make to ensure that colour schemes are easy on the eye.
The final card that I made this week with the Awash with Flowers was very simple. I stamped the petals image in a mirrored fashion on white card stock as per the above card, coloured them in using an aqua pen and Rose Red ink pad. I stamped the leaves outline on River Rock and coloured them with Not Quite Navy. I cut the flowers and leaves out and mounted them on the card base around the greeting banner. I used a button in the centres of the flowers (this is because the outlines overlap and don't look that great) and sprayed the whole project with Frost White Shimmer Paint spritzer.
