Here’s our latest card made at our workshops.
It uses the gorgeous Flower Stamps designed by Trudie Howard, Doodle Borders and Background Stamps. The dies we have used are the Double Debossed Circles, Essentials and Inverted Squares. The flowers have been coloured with the Watercolour Brush Pens.
The Full Card
Stage 1 – Cut out all the layers and die cuts as shown in the photo. The card is 21cm x 21cm. You will need some scrap white card if you wish to decoupage the flowers.
Stage 2 – Ink the edges of the plain inverted square layer in two colours and then where the circle aperture is with the lightest colour ink. Ink the skinny circle frame.
TIP – we placed the inverted square aperture layer over the plain square layer and lightly drew around the circle with a pencil. Then we knew where to ink for the aperture!
Stage 3 – choose a background stamp and stamp over the inked circle area using the darker colour ink.
Stage 4 – ink the doodle border around the edge of inverted square aperture layer
Stage 5 – Stamp the flower stamp using Versafine Black Ink onto the large circle die. If you are decoupaging the flowers stamp it again on the scrap card. Take your time and enjoy colouring your flowers!
Stage 6 – assemble your layers, using foam tape to lift the inverted square aperture layer.
