April Stamp of the Month 3.5" x 8" card
I had so much fun making this card! I knew when I saw this soft and elegant set (Close To My Heart's April Stamp of the Month) I wanted my creations with it to keep that same feeling. I decided that embossing the image would give it that elegant feel, as would watercoloring the flowers and leaves.
First I embossed the flower on chocolate cardstock in white. I also embossed the same flower on white cardstock in white. I used my waterbrush and a stamp pad and watercolored in the flower bud and leaves on the white paper and then cut them out and paper pieced them onto the chocolate cardstock. I also did some background stamping with chocolate ink on chocolate cardstock. i think tone-on-tone inks on papers is also very elegant and I do it a lot! Voila! Magic! Of course, to see these details closer and in more detail, just click on the photo.
