CQC 232: Fabulous Florets and Best of Greetings

There’s a little restaurant around the corner from my son’s home where all of their art work is done on newspaper print.  When I was there a few months ago, I determined it was time that I give this technique a try.   But, it actually took this week’s Colour Q’s challenge to motivate me to actually do it.  I stamped the Fabulous Florets stem and leaves with Versamark onto the Modern Medley DSP and then black embossed the image.  These base leaves served as a shadow behind the Lucky Limeade leaves.  (I’ve really missed Lucky Limeade since it retired.)  Once again, I’m reminded of how much I appreciate the high quality of SU paper; notice how I was able to curl the petals in order to give the flower added dimension.    Finally, different sized pearls in the flowers’ centers added depth and texture.

  1. Very pretty….I love your 3D flowers,and I miss Lucky Limeade too…it’s such a great, happy, springy color! Thanks for playing with the ColourQ challenge colors this week!

    • Thank you Claire. I actually fussy cut some flowers and used my blender pen to color the petals Lucky Limeade; but, the colored petals TOTALLY changed the feel of the card and I quickly returned to the crisp, clean look 🙂
