Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a card featuring the Lovely Lily stamp set. I couldn’t resist coloring the big flower using alcohol ink 🙂 ! I’ve also made a video of my coloring process.
I stamped the Lovely Lily on an alcohol ink cardstock in Vanilla Frosted Cupcake ink to get an idea how it would look before adding the alcohol ink to create the background.
I sprayed rubbing alcohol on the alcohol ink cardstock and dropped Sunshine Yellow and Copic Refill Y06 on it. I blended the colors by blowing with a Marker Spritzer tool. I repeated the process till I was happy with the result. I then let the panel dry.
I stamped the Lovely Lily again in an embossing ink and heat embossed it in gold. I then started coloring the lily by dropping the Copic Refill Y06, Y19 and the alcohol ink in Valencia. I moved the inks to blend by tilting the panel. Small areas were colored using a micro applicator. I added lots of golden splatters on the background and a bit on the lily and let the panel dry. I hope the coloring process video could help you understand how I colored the image 🙂 . You can watch it here or on YouTube. The light in my video setting isn’t optimal, so the colors are a bit dull. Sorry about that.
I mounted the colored panel flat on a white cardbase and added the sentiments using some foam adhesives.
The sentiment was stamped and cut using the Layered Floral Alphas stamp set and the coordinating die. The letters were gold heat embossed and the florals were stamped in Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine, Soft Garden and Bright Fern. For the small sentiments I stamped the words from Basic Labels set in Lemon Drop and Coralline hybrid ink in an ombre fashion.
I colored a small piece of alcohol ink cardstock in Valencia, gold heat embossed a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set on it and cut it using the coordinating die. I added the butterfly to the card and embellished it with two golden sequins from Pink Cosmo Twist and Princess Glam Couture Mix.
That’s it from me! Hope you enjoyed looking my card and the video!
Have a crafty day and stay healthy!
