Hand Drawn Birthday Florals

Hello, Tallie here with some floral inspiration for you, featuring Avery Elle's Hand Drawn Florals. Sometimes, a stamp set just begs to be coloured with my alcohol markers and this was one that drew my eye for exactly this reason. If you're not keen on colouring, these could just as easily be coloured with any other of your favourite mediums - I know next time I use this set I will use some watercolours.

Starting with an A6 panel of blending cardstock, I stamped out an arrangement of flowers in the bottom left hand corner using some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. It did require a little bit of masking with some Post-It Notes, especially when it came to the leaves. I only used two flowers as I stamped the largest one twice, stamping the birthday sentiment from the set towards the top right of the panel. I then coloured them in using some red and green alcohol markers, using multiple shades and multiple layers to get the depth of colour.

Once dry, I cut out the panel using the largest rectangle from the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches. I added some additional splashes of colour using some gold, black, red and green Kuretaki Gansai Tambi watercolours, flicking with a brush off a stamp block and avoiding the coloured sections and sentiment. I added a layer of clear Wink of Stella to add some subtle sparkle before mounting on an A2 top folding narwhal card.

A seemingly simple but elegant card that I'm sure will be appreciated by my Aunt.

Thanks for reading, catch you next week.
