Love Card Making magazine issue 13
I dry embossed Card 1, with the embossing folder from Tropical Blooms on to white card. On another piece of white card I coloured it with Tim Holtz distress inks using Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans. I’ve got a few different stamps of Hibiscus flowers from Stamp It , and stamped them using Pickled Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade. I embossed the newly coloured card with the embossing folder and coloured the raised parts with Faber Castell Big White Pen. I had some of the coloured card left over from Card 2, I die cut the flower shapes out of it and stuck them, over the flowers on the embossed white card, with foam tape. The next step was to use some stick on gems from Kaiser Craft Rhinestones in Lime Green. Framed each card with a fresh hint of blue for Card 2. and purple for Card 1. Loved how these cards turned out. Oh yes with Card 1. I coloured over the coloured leaves and flowers with Zig Wink of Stella clear brush pen, adds a slight hint of glitter, pretty! These cards are made similarly but have 2 completely different looks. Same Same but Different!
I love all the tropical flowers, hibiscus being very high on my list, and this Tropical Blooms pack is a great bonus from the Love Card Making magazine, sold in all good News Agencies.
