Good afternoon and Happy Sunday! I am so excited to be hopping along to celebrate the fabulous Essentials by Ellen October release from Ellen Hutson! I just love the Mondo Floral series by Julie Ebersole and couldn’t wait to play with the gorgeous new Mondo Chrysanthemum!!
I have a video for today’s card that you can watch below or over at my YouTube channel!
To start I stamped the flower and leaves onto strathmore bristol smooth surface cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed them with gold tinsel embossing powder. Then I watercolored them using Altenew watercolor brush markers in Sunkissed, Autumn Blaze, Rubellite, Fresh Lemon, Emerald, and Jet Black. Once I was finished watercoloring I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies and then went over the white edges with a black copic marker!
Then I stamped a few more leaves and the sentiment from Totally Random Sayings vol.3 onto an A2 panel of black cardstock and heat-embossed with gold tinsel embossing powder. I adhered the leaves with ATG adhesive and used foam mounting tape to pop up the flower. Finally I added a few metallic gold sequins to finish the card!
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my video today!! And make sure to check out the Ellen Hutson blog tomorrow for another video from me! 😉
