Fancy Blooms Background Stamping

Happy weekend! I hope you are enjoying your day and finding a little time for some crafting. It’s time for the reminder post for The Flower Challenge and this month’s challenge is Focus in Background Stamping.

TFChallenge#33

Here is my DT card for this fun challenge.

I started by stamping the two main floral images from the Pinkfresh Fancy Blooms set on Copic friendly paper with Gina K Amalgam ink. I used my MISTI to ensure a clean crisp image. Then I filled in the gaps with a smaller floral image from the same set.

I decided to use a lighter red and pink for the main flowers using R01, R21, R22, and R24. The blues I used alternated depending on the leaves and  B12, B16, B24, B26, B28 and B29. For the lighter flowers I used B000, B00, B01, and B02.

Once I was finished coloring the flowers, I felt the background was a little too light so used Y00 to add a light shade of yellow to the card. Here is what it looked like as I tested a corner to see if the yellow would work.

Once I finished the background, I used the Basic Label die from Pinkfresh and cut a larger piece with black paper and a smaller piece with the sentiment on white. I shaded the edges of the white to tie in with the background but left the center white to help it pop a little.

I finished my card with a little white gel pen on some of the petals as well as used a black pen to trace over a couple of the petals that I had hand stamped and weren’t as crisp as the other images.
