Good morning! I’m super excited to be a stop on the hop for the Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic blog hop!!
Have you checked out the new release yet? It’s FANTASTIC!!!
I’ve already shared three cards using the new release here and today I’m sharing another card using the gorgeous Earth Has Music stamp set designed by Stephanie Low!
I just love this stamp set…the flowers mixed with the feathers are SO beautiful! I started by stamping the hibiscus feather onto strathmore bristol cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I stamped it again on masking paper, fussy cut it and placed it over my embossed image. Then I blended candied apple, picked raspberry, abandoned coral, spiced marmalade, and squeezed lemonade distress ink over the panel for a tropical vibe. I spritzed it with water and clear iridescent spray and blotted off the excess water. Then I flicked it with black ink, remove the post-it notes, and let it dry.
Once the background was totally dry I colored the flowers with copic markers. I added a little grey shading to the petals and then added bright pink to the stamens of the hibiscus flowers! I stamped the sentiment from Earth Has Music onto the panel with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a black card base. Finally I finished the card by adding a few black jewels and a thin layer of nuvo crystal glaze to the flowers!
