I love this card and it was so easy to make - I felt like I was cheating! All I did was take a fantastic Designer Series Paper (Petal Passion) and colored a small portion of it with the Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers!
I laid out all 12 patterns of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and snapped a photo so you could see all of the patterns. For this card I used the pattern in the lower left corner. Another way to add color to this paper would be by using a brayer or sponge. Or you can stick with the classic (and classy) black and white!
The Stampin' Blends markers are available individually or as a combo back of light and dark. I used the Cherry Cobbler Combo pack and the Old Olive combo pack for this card. I like to color the image all over with the light marker, then I go back in with the dark marker and add shading. Then I go back in with the bullet tip of the light marker and layer color on the harsh line between the dark and light to blend it.
I added a little "bling" in the center of the flower with the Clear Faceted Gems but first....
I colored it with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend! (I like to use the side of the large brush tip so I don't damage the tip of my marker on the hard gem).
For the inside of my card I used one of the greetings from the FREE Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-bration stamp set - just love that gorgeous font! This stamp set is one of many choices FREE with a $50 order.
