Bold Blossoms Tutorial

Hello! I have several tutorials I need to get uploaded from the Gina K release last week, so I'm sure you'll recognize this card featuring Bold Blossoms.

 To start my card, I stamped the flower, from Bold Blossoms, twice off the edges of the card stock, using VersaMark ink. Then I heat embossed using Clear Ranger Fine Embossing Powder.

 Then, using Memento Grape Jelly ink, I sponged over the flowers, with my Jumbo Sponge Dauber.

 I stamped the flower on scratch paper, twice, and cut them out for masks. Then, with the masks in place, I sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

 I stamped the leaf a few times with Memento Bamboo Leaves. They are faint in this photos, but you can click on it to see it larger.

 Next I removed the masks and used my V12 and V15 Copic markers to deepen the color at the base of the petals.

 Used C1 and C3 to add a shadow around the edges of the flowers.

Using my Scor-Buddy, I added some score lines on opposite corners.

A simple stamped sentiment, from A Little Something, was adhered to the center, with 3D Foam Squares. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and used a Pure Luxury Ocean Mist card base (4 ¼ by 5 ½ inches).

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful day!!!
