Today I have 2 cards to share with you. The images I used are digital stamps from Fred, She Said With the stamps also comes a pattern for paper piercing. I printed out all four of the flowers. These are the first two cards I made and I will share the other two tomorrow.
This is the Aster digi stamp. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and cut it out and embossed the edge with an oval Nestability and the Cuttlebug. The aperture is cut and embossed with an oval Nestie 2 sizes bigger. The mat behind the aperture is a piece of Basic Grey from the Porcelain collection.
For the second card I used the sunflower image. The green CS went through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then I rubbed over the dots with a white ink pad. I used the Distressed Stripes folder on a piece of kraft CS and lightly went over it with a brown ink pad and distressed the edges with my fingernail. A very inexpensive distressing tool! Of course I don't have a fancy manicure either! LOL
I printed the image twice on CS and once on paper. I cut out the paper image to use as a mask. I used an oval nestie to cut one image and then used the mask I cut from paper to cover the image and used golden yellow and green chalks to color the background and then inked the edge with brown ink. I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and then from the second image I cut out part of the flower, a part of the leaf on the left and the leaf in the front and attached them with dimensional tape.
