Concord & 9th – Wonderful Florals

Welcome back as I guest-design for Concord & 9th’s February release!  This is week 3 and we’re featuring their beautiful stamp set and coordinating dies called Wonderful Florals!

Wonderful Florals Bundle

I’ve stamped this image for 3 of my cards and used the loose images for my 4th card.  The first three cards are all very unique so let’s dive right in!

Blog Wonderful Florals - Copics

My first two cards are stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.  I added some accents using my white gel pen and tried to add some depth using different shades of green for the folliage and flowers.  You can’t see it in the image above but each of the letters filled with glossy accents – giving the card some added interest and texture.

Copic colors used:  R30, R22, R14, Y02, YR12, BV000, BV11, V15, R39, R17, YG61, G82, G05, G16, YG07, G03.

Blog Hello Friend Spray

This floral spray was made using 3 of each of the loose flowers, leaves, and berries from the stamp set.  I arranged them all in a single layer and adhered them using my ATG adhesive.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in white on black cardstock and adhered to the card layer with a single staple.  I also added some gold thread and sequins to finish of this card.

Blog Wonderful Floral - Distress Watercolor over Black

On my third card, I stamped the image using Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed the image with clear powder for watercoloring.  I watercolored this image using distress inks (Aged Mahogany, Candied Apple, Wilted Violet, Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, and Pine Needles).  I then die-cut the image and layered it on black cardstock.  To finish off the card, I added Wink of Stella – Clear to the letters.  Sorry you can’t see that too well in this image either!

Blog Wonderful Florals - Pearlescent

My last and final card today was watercolored using a Zig Pearlescent palette.  You can’t see the colors head-on as I show in my group photo, but at an angle like in the photo above all the colors are very vibrant.  This time, I used the “wonderful” die and cut out the words from black cardstock.  I put the stamp over the die-cut black cardstock and stamped the image over it using VersaMark Ink and embossed the image in white.  Pearlescent watercolors look beautiful over black paper and I hope that you’ll give it a try!
