Hello crafters! Joy here with you today with a big and bold floral design featuring the Truly Inspire digital stamp and Modern Duets. I love combining different stamp sets to create a customized arrangement and think these two stamp sets pair perfectly with one another. Because they are digital stamps I was able to size them and layer them easily to make this big and bold arrangement. I hope you love this card as much as I do?
To create this arrangement, I layered the leaf image from Modern Duets and the cabbage rose image from the Truly Inspire sets so that it would take up the majority of the length and width of a 3.5 x 5 card panel. I used Photoshop Elements to do this, but there are a lot of free software programs available. I colored the arrangement with common Copic blends, but then added fluorescent colors to add unexpected pops of color. For further drama I colored the background with a black Copic and splattered it with gold acrylic paint.
Do you love how the sentiment pops? Because Truly Inspire is a digital stamp, I printed it with a Laser printer allowing me to foil the sentiment. Before foiling and running it through my laminator, I colored the die cut rectangle with a black Copic. It appears white in the picture, but I used a silver toner reactive foil. And because I love more depth on my cards, I used a gold pigment ink to highlight the edges of the sentiment before popping it up on foam tape. I matted the focal panel with gold card stock from the Solid Gold Mat Stack that can be found in the shop and then adhered to a black A2 card base. I hope this has inspired you to get a little inky today!
