Hello everyone! Asia King here. Today I have gone into a ‘blooming’ overdrive with my inspirational card as my card is full of handmade florals :).
A while back Angela Ploegman posted this awesome cupcake card where she used the 3D Designer Shapes for stamping. I fell in love with this idea and wanted to try it out. So I used 3D Foam Leaves to stamp my leafy background wreath. Once I had my leaves stamped I used the impressions as a guide for further detailing with my pencils. Once I was happy with my leaves I added an inspirational quote as my focal point of the card highlighted with a gold pen.
To create my daisies I punched the flowers from patterned paper and added some definition and shape with an embossing tool. To attach the layers I used DODZ Medium. Once my layers were secured I added my lovely enameled flower centres which I created by heat embossing the DODZ 3D.
To secure my flower compositions I added two handfuls of DODZ 3D and DODZ Medium. I also tucked in several 3D Foam Leaves covered with Brown Pigment Powder. Once all my elements were in place I added some paint highlights and a light misting with white ink spray and my own DIY sprays made from Gold and Brown Pigment Powders.
