Goldenrod

Hello! Today I have a card using Melanie Muenchinger's newest stamp set, Stately Flowers 2. I used the goldenrod image for this card.


I stamped the image on Pure Luxury Ivory card stock, cut to 3 by 4 1/5 inches. I colored using Copics, starting with Y17.

Added Y11.

Then used Y23 to blend a bit.

For the centers, I used YR18.

Took a bad photo and totally missed the Copic lids. I think I filled in with YG91, then added YG93.

Added YG95.

Then I added a drop shadow around the side using BV00.

I sponged around the sides of my background using Memento Cantaloupe ink.

Then I tore a strip off the side of the background.

I layered with another piece of Pure Luxury Ivory behind the background, stamped with a sentiment from Mountain Wilderness. After adding the sentiment piece, the overall size of the layer was back to 3 by 4 1/2 inches. I layered with Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus and Sweet Corn and used a Kraft card base. The finished size of the card is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing and taking time to take pictures and colors every step. One question.... How do you store your jumbo daubers. I've recently purchase two of your stamp sets and jumbo daubers. However, I don't know of a good way to store the daubers. Also, do you wash them after use? Or do you have one for each color?

Another beautiful card. You always give such great coloring details. The drop shadow really does give the goldenrod depth and dimension.

This is such a beautiful image but your project showcases it so well- love the use of cantaloupe color.

Another stunner! I want to try to start sponging around images like I see you do. Is dye ink the best to use for this technique?
