Mondo gerbera daisy

SCS COLOR CHALLENGE

Hello all, another beautiful day to create, well I stand corrected, everyday is a beautiful day to create. Today I am playing along with SCS (splitcoast stampers) color challenge. The color combo is Daffodils, Pear n and White. For my card,  I decided to use my current favorite floral stamp from Ellen Hutson called the Mondo Gerbera Daisy, which  is an amazing large floral stamp, most importantly it  means you have the freedom to color it with whatever medium you like. I have used this stamp in my previous blog pos as welt. If you like you can click here to get more ideas to use this stamp set. The medium I  chose to use is  my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, say that 5 times!! Below is a step by step instruction of how I created this card.


PRODUCTS USED TO MAKE THE MONDO GERBERA DAISY CARD:


STEPS BY STEP INSTRUCTION:


I stamped the Gerbera Daisies on to a 4×51/4 Bristol smooth cardstock with embossing ink and heat set it with white embossing powder. Its is very important to use an ant static powder tool to ward away any stray embossing powder, before you do the stamping.The floral image was  then  colored  using the zig real brush colors and a watercolor brush. The Bristol smooth paper is the best paper that I have found for using Zig watercolor brush, because  the  colors blend beautifully and they are very easy to move around. After I had colored the Daisies I wanted some greenery in the background which I accomplished by loose water coloring with green markers  illusion  . My idea with the  floral image was for it to  looks like a close up photography with hazy  background.

After the images were all colored, I set the panel aside to dry. I then die cut the word  “Hi”, with three layers of white and the top layer with glitter cardstock. Also I   heat set the additional sentiment with white on a black cardstock.  The pop of black color on this card  adds some additional interest. The panel was  finished off  by adding a few dew drop jewels. This colored panel was then mounted on to a fun foam with liquid adhesive and adhered to a white standard A2 notecard. Here is a close up of the finished card.

I hope you will head over to SCS and play along. There are so many fun and interesting projects to see and to be inspired.

Have a blessed and creative day!!
