Flower Field

Create Your Own Background Paper!

Using one of my new MFT Floral background stamps I stamped the image in white pigment ink onto the blue cs and then clear embossed it. I already had the 2 frame die cuts on my desk as they were left from another project and I intertwined them and then laid them on the card to see how it looked. I liked it, so decided to proceed with using these but making part of the stamped image stand out more. I initially coloured in the center parts with a white pencil but it wasn’t quite white enough so went over the top with some white water colour. This I liked. I added some gold water colour to the flower centers and used a pencil on the stems. Didn’t want a lot of colour but it definitely needed the hint. From a Divinity Designs stamp set I chose the sentiment and stamped it with Blueprint Sketch Distress oxide to which I added clear heat embossing. Cut it to the size and popped it up at the bottom. Getting the negative and positive look gave me a background paper and a solid image in the frames and I love the result.

  1. Thanks Judy – The blue cs was what came as protection in one of the cards you sent to me. It was totally undamaged so I decided to keep it and it worked great for this card.


    1. I had an enjoyable time doing this card as when I saw my idea was going to work I was really excited. It is my current favourite.


  2. Oh, my Gosh, this is gorgeous! Stamping white on that dark blue background really makes a statement, and I love how you highlighted part of the image using leftover die cuts. It looks totally planned! This is an exquisite card.

  3. Thanks Jan. As egotistical as it may sound, I’m pretty pleased with this one myself. Didn’t expect it to look quite like this – way better than I thought in my head.
