Hi everyone, today I have an adorable hand coloured card for you featuring a StampingBella stamp. Isn’t she cute? I pretty much love all the Garden Girls from StampingBella but this one is my absolute favourite (until now, because now and then there come out new ones)!
I started my card by stamping the image from the “Tiny Townie Garden Girl Rose“ stamp onto some Strathmore “Bristol Smooth Surface“ paper using Versafine “Onyx Black“ ink and clear heat embossing afterwards (as I always do when I plan on using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, this way the lines stay crisp and black no matter how much water I ad).
Then I coloured the image using my Zig Markers and my Pentel Aquabrush. I used the following colours: Light Carmine, Wine Red, Pale Green, Green, Deep Green, Beige, Dark Brown, Deep Brown, Shadow Mauve, Dull Blue, Pale Gray and Pale Pink (the last one for the skin only).
When the image was dry I fussy cut her out using my Fiskars scissors and then I added back in some of the highlights with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
Now I can start working on my background panel: for this I die cut a square panel from some patterned paper from my stash using one of the dies from the square Crealies Crea-Nest-Lies XXL nesting die set. I also die cut a slightly larger mat from some matching dark red card stock using one of the dies from the stitched square Crealies Crea-Nest-Lies XXL nesting die set. These two panels I adhered together using liquid glue and then I adhered these combined panel to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.
Next I created my sentiment by die cutting the Stamplorations “Hello Sunshine“ Phrase Die from some matte gold card stock. I adhered the Rose girl onto my card using one millimetre thick foam tape on her body (but not her legs) and liquid glue on her legs. Then I adhered the die cut sentiment onto the card, partly covering up her legs using Ranger Medium Matte. I love how the sentiment and the Rose girl image work together!
This card doesn’t need much else! So, to finish my card I adhered some “Jewels - Ice Cube Mix“ from Lucy’s Cards in different sizes on the card using Ranger Glossy Accents.
And that’s it for today’s project! I wish you’ll a creative day!
