Happy Monday! We’re continuing the Summer of Stamping over at Ellen Hutson with a brand new Essentials by Ellen release!! This release is all things tropical, hot, and summery and features a brand new mondo flower: Mondo Anthurium which I’m featuring in my card today! I’ll also have links to the full release below!
I kept things bright and cheery with my card and matched my copic coloring to my tropical distress oxide background. It’s funny how colors that could almost be Christmas-y are very NOT in this card! Ha!
I started by blending tattered rose, abandoned coral, and crackling campfire distress oxide ink onto a panel of strathmore bristol smooth cardstock. Then I stamped the Mondo Anthurium with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment from Mondo Anthurium onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label.
I colored the Mondo Anthurium with copic markers using BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG49, and BG78 for the leaves, Y13, Y15, and Y38 for the stamens, and R20, R22, R24, R27, and R29 for the flowers. I die-cut the Mondo Anthurium with the coordinating dies and adhered it to my blended background with foam mounting tape. Finally I added my sentiment with regular adhesive. I actually created three blended backgrounds because I splattered the first one with white and black paint, and water on the second…but ended up deciding that the solid blended background was the best to show off the beautifully illustrated Mondo Anthurium stamp! I hope you agree!

Great projects! These red waxy flowers always remind me of the time I spent Chirstmas in Hawaii with my parents while growing up. Christmas trees were so expensive there so instead we used a pineapple with these beautiful red waxy flowers as our Hawaiian Christmas tree LOL.
