Hello everyone!  Today I’m bringing you a card made with a very versatile digistamp set.

Modern Duets Bundle

This set has flowers – solid and outlined.  And leaves to fill out your bouquet.  Let me show you how I made my card!  I first started with arranging my flowers in a pleasing bouquet.  I used 4 different flowers and repeated one.  I made them different sizes and turned and flipped them!  The joys of digital stamping!  I printed off my floral arrangement and sentiment – which came from the Just Butterflies digital stamp set.  I printed this out onto hot press watercolor paper.

I had already planned to fussy cut the image but I was unsure at this point about the sentiment. So I cut the sentiment away from the flowers so I could paint the flowers.  I decided to use Karin Markers. I chose 2-color blends for 4 flowers using the yellow blend twice..

I started with my Blue/Purple flower.  I scribbled color out onto my glass mat and picked it up with a damp paint brush after wetting the area with clean clear water.

I moved onto my yellow flowers next.  These were Yellow and Red Violet for shading.

The Pink/Orange one was next.

And the Magenta/Purple one was last.

The leaves were the last thing that I painted.  I used a mix on each leaf of Lime Green, Dark Green, Purple, Yellow and Orange.

While I was waiting for that to dry I die cut my sentiment with a fish-tailed banner die.

And I colored in the letter with a Pentel Sparkle Pop Pen in Gold.  This gold pen is actually a sparkly gold pen – not just metallic gold.  I fussy cut the bouquet leaving a small white border.  I prepared a white mini slimline card base that when folded measures 3″ x 6″.  Using a die from the Big & Little Chain Rectangle Mini Slimline Dies I cut another white panel.  Using a brush stripe stencil from my stash I stenciled the stripes using Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I then assembled all of my card parts.

I adhered the stenciled pattern onto my card base.  After trimming my sentiment on the left side I aligned it with the tiny dot detail of the stencil.  I knew my fish-tailed end would get covered.  I wanted to fill in the bigger holes in the stencil with something, but like the stenciling, I wanted it to be neutral.  I used very tiny black gems – I get these in the fingernail art section on Amazon.  I really liked how they made the base look.

I popped up my flower focal with foam and that completed my card!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card project!  I really liked thinking beyond what I normally do.  It often brings unexpected joy!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
