Pretty Pink Posh – Blue Pansies

Hi, Friends!

I created this project for the Pretty Pink Posh blog yesterday for the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember event and wanted to share it with you here today.  This Pansy set is beautiful!  Paulina had asked me to make a bold card – so a bold card, she got!  I was pretty worried about coloring pansies – there are so many colors and shades to them – so I tried my best to do it justice.

PPP Pansies 1

I stamped and colored these blue pansies using Copic markers.  The colors used are Y13, Y17 (flower centers), B21, B24, B26, B29 (pansies), and YG07, YG09 (leaves).  Once I was done coloring, I fussy-cut the images and added white gel highlights using my Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  I also added Nuvo glitter drops in Honey Gold in the center of the flowers for added interest.

For the pack panel, I ink blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink, concentrating from the center and blended out for a softer edge.  To give it more interest, I added some water splatters to remove color and give the panel some texture.   I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment in white, over black cardstock, using a sentiment from the Birdie Friends stamp set.  To complete the look, I added Pearl White Jewels to give the card a more elegant and refined look.

These pansies were so fun for me to color because it really challenged me to shade in different areas to make it look more realistic.  In another life, I would love to be a florist – I have a weakness for flowers and am so excited that this year’s Stamptember set is a floral set!  Be sure to get it before it’s no longer available!  Thanks for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed this project!

XOXO,
