Roses Card with Derwent Inktense

16 May 2019

 

Hi everyone, today I have a fun and bright card to share with you using the two editions of the Derwent Inktense Paint Pan Travel Sets.

 

 

Step 1:

I started my card project by stamping the flower image from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Splendid Roses” stamp set onto Clairefontaine Multi-Techiques á Grain paper (the blue one) using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and clear heat embossing afterwards.

Then I started colouring the image with the Fuchsia colour from the second Travel Set, defining where my highlights and my shadows should go. I worked in layers, each time darkening a little more.

 

 

Step 2:

When I was happy I added in another colour to create the feeling of depth: for this I mixed the Fuchsia colour with the French Ultramarine colour from the same set (creating a nice purple) and adding that over the pink colour that I already had. Don’t pull this purple colour over the pink entirely, just create deeper shadows where they are needed. This is the ugly duckling stage! Just work on it a little more, it will pass!

 

 

Step 3:

To merge the pink and the purple colour together again, creating a better balance so to say, I added another layer of the Fuchsia, making sure that I didn’t loose my highlights.

Then I started working on the leaves: for this I used the first Travel Set: I mixed Sun Yellow with Bright Blue to create a green that looks nice for roses and added my first layers.

 

 

Step 4:

To brighten it up a bit I then added a bit of the mixture Sun Yellow with Teal Green (which is a brighter green mix, but in the same colour family as the previous one).  

 

 

Step 5:

And to finish the leaves I added another layer of the first green mixture that I used before. Around the roses I painted with a pastel yellow colour created with a mixture of Sherbet Lemon and Antique White for the second Travel Set. This brightens the whole image and creates distance between the rose petals and the background.

To add in a bit more highlights I next used my white Gelly Roll Pen.

 

 

Step 6:

I fussy cut the rose image leaving a small yellow border. Then it’s time to work on my background design. For this I die cut a square panel from the same Clairefontaine paper that I used for the roses. On this square panel I stamped one of the sentiments from the same Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set, using Archival Ink in “Jet Black”.

 

Then I applied some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste” over a The Crafter’s Workshop stencil (TCW824s) using a palette knife and set that aside to dry.

 

When dry I applied some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical in “Bling-y Blonde” on the square panel, using a dry fan brush, then I sprayed the panel with water, which makes the colour run and drying with my heat tool when I liked what I had. This I repeated until the yellow background colour was dark enough for my liking.

To finish the background I created splatters with the same Derwent Inktense Fuchsia colour that I used for painting the roses (for this you only have to mix a bit of the pigment with water and splatter using a brush).

 

To put my card together I die cut a slightly larger square panel from matching green card stock, then I adhered both panels together using liquid glue. Next I adhered these combined panels to a white line textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and adhered the rose image on top also with one millimetre thick foam tape!

And that’s it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
