Last of my Win a Day cards - Flora

Happy Friday! Here is the last group of cards I made for my Hero Arts Day on the Blog. These are all Flora-themed. My favorite one was this which was chosen:

The poppies are colored with copics. I wanted to change the look of the stamp a bit, so I used one of the larger poppies two times and just tilted it a bit when adhering it to the card. It's the one on the right side. Next is a card using this stamp set again:


I used distress inks misted with perfect pearls to color the roses. When clicking onto the close-up you might be able to see the soft shimmer. Looks good in real life:



Here is another poppy card where I colored the flower with copics. I love poppies - they remind me of the beautiful poppy fields in the tuscany. Love to use the emboss resist technique tone on tone:


And this is a clean and simple looking card. But it wasn't that easy to manage to stamp the leaves exactly onto the background and the squares:



The last card is made with the emboss resist technique again. The white cardstock was blended with old paper distress ink, then I clear embossed the fern and applied peeled paint distress ink. After that I stamped the text stamp with walnut stain ink. I thought the rustic twine adds a bit to the nature theme:


Ok, I am finished with my Win a Day cards. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions! It was so much fun to play with the stamps.

Have a fabulous Friday and thanks for visiting again!

Hugs,
Vanessa
