For today's project I chose to use the following Die-Namites Dies and So So Suzy Stamps.



Elegance


I started by die-cutting the Bell Flowers and Budding Branches out of craft paper. I cut 4 Bell Flowers and 2 Budding Branches.



I colored and shaded all my flowers with my eBrush machine and Sharpie markers. For the leaves I used a the following colors: light green, green, and orange. For the bells I used lavender, purple, and brown... for the stamens on the flowers I used yellow and orange.

After airbrushing them I added a bit of dimension using a stylus and foam mat by rubbing my stylus in a circular motion on the back side of my flowers.

I hand drew detail lines using  a PITT Artist Pen in XS. And, for the budding vines, I used a white opaque marker just on the buds.


I stamped the Elegance sentiment stamp by So Suzy Stamps using VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad. The red rubber stamp gives a gorgeous crisp image! Just look at those details... these are really fine lines and the impressions are clean and crisp!

I snipped my budding branches and bell flowers into smaller pieces and attached them onto my card front using glossy accents.

Then, lastly, I used my Xyron Mega Runner to attach my card front to my card base. I could have attached the card front before adding my die-cut but got carried away and attached them to my card front first. LOL... sometimes it happens!

And here is my finished card...

Supplies Used
eBrush (Craftwell)
Patterned Paper- (Canvas Home Basics- Black and Craft, My Mind's Eye- Ooh La La For Her)
White Cardstock (Bazzill Basics)
Glossy Accents (Ranger)
White Opaque Marker (Recollections)
PITT Artist Pen-XS (Faber-Castell)
Sharpie Markers- Lavender, Purple, Light Green, Green, Yellow, Orange, Brown
