You know it takes time to get acquainted with your stamps and dies. I started out with a few simple designs and had fun playing with Bamboo Rose Stamp and Coordinating Die.The following is actually my first take with this stamp and die combo.
I made this card for the Altenew September release as an extra project. I didn't want to bore the blog hoppers with too many projects, so instead, I am sharing it today.
I did it all in one sitting and the card actually came together very quickly. When I said "in one sitting", that means, I stamped and embossed all the images at one time (with MISTI). The images were colored with Kuretake. It really is easy to color these flowers as they are just the perfect size for any novice color-er. I also watercolored the outline images before diecutting. This way, the flowers look more cohesive and polished (all supplies are linked below) when assembled.
Of course, I had to add gold splatter to the background and stamped the sentiment in Delicata gold...the card now looks "golden"!
Anyone can create a card like this as long as you have the right tools and supplies!
I love the free style design of the Bamboo Rose. It is perfect for coloring in any type of medium.
