The first of my three projects is from the Beautiful Details class "Artistic Flowers". A very interesting class taught by Marika Rahtu. She really challenges every participant to think outside the box when working with stamps. The stamp set I used is Etheral Beauty. I only used one of the leaves from this set to build my flowers. I started with Altenew's Moonrock paper for my card topper. I stamped the leaves three or four times with Pure Graphite ink before re-inking the stamp to achieve several shades of one color. Imagine just a simple little leaf stamp creates such a pretty flower with a ton of dimension. The ink is from the Altenew mini set "Rock Collection. Once my flowers were stamped I went in with my black micron pen and added some outlines and stems. Can you imagine what they looked like before the outlining? The flowers themselves actually tell you what to add as you go. Just try it once and see for yourself. I added a sentiment stamped in Pure Graphite from the Build a Flower set Coral Charm. Then I added Nuvo drops. Don't you know when I want all the drops the same size its hard to do but when I don't want them all the same it was even harder! I am practicing these drops and working toward being able to create lots of different sizes. I then glued the card top to the dark gray card base and added a slim strip of black paper to the bottom of the card front. I will be adding this technique to my future projects. I hope you like the finished project!
