Hello. I recently visited a blog where she was doing a patchwork background around a flower stamp. It was beautiful so I tried to use it for inspiration. I ended up doing something different but it was so fun to try.
Here is the final card I made, I will have the original one that I tried using her video below as well as a link to the blog post I got the idea from.
Once I completed all the stamping and coloring, I trimmed it down to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", distressed the edges and mounted it to black card stock, then to an A2 card base.
I started by stamping my large daisy onto the A2 size card face. I cut one out of masking paper and placed it over the daisy. I actually shortened the stem of the daisy by putting tape over the bottom, inking the stamp and removing the tape before stamping.
I then stamped a small cluster of flowers stamps randomly around the daisy using Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide. I masked them off as well. I placed this back into my Misti and stamped a dot background over all of it using the same Hickory Smoke ink. I removed the mask from the small flower clusters and using a Tim Holtz blending brush, I blended Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide all around the still masked daisy using a very light hand. I also blended a scrap to stamp the sentiment on. I then removed the mask on the daisies and colored them as follows.
Colors used: BV000, BV00, BV01 & BV02
Centers: Y13, Y19 & Y26 dotted on.
Leaves YG61 & YG63
My other card used a square cut out of thin paper like the original blog post seen here. Art Ventures in France blog inspiration.
The background ended up a little darker on this one, so I deepened the colors of the flowers. I will add a sentiment when I need to use it.
The square I used was a 1 1/4" square punch.
