Vera Lane Studio: Flower Lover


It's my DT day over at Vera Lane Studio today. Janet has a new released out today called Flower Lover. It comprises of two adorable girls and one lovely sentiment.

I used the girl with the bouquet and the sentiment to create my project and I teamed her with some of the Floral Burst images that were released last Tuesday. Here is my card:

As usual, I coloured my images with Copic markers and added some white Posca pen highlights. I fussy cut the images and ran a black marker around the edges.
The background is brayered with PaperArtsy chalky acrylic paints in Butternut, Candy Floss and Mermaid. I added some Snowflake to tone the colours down, then spritzed some Glimmer Mist over the entire background.  Modelling paste was added through an AAll & Create Stencil (#59) and some Flanel Grey stamping added mainly to the edges of the background. The edges were inked with black archival ink.

I tore some polka dot washi tape to ground the images, then glued the orange flower directly onto the background, leaving the petals free. I popped the pink flower head on foam pads. The bouquet girl is also raised on foam pads. I used one of the Flower Burst flower head images as a sun. Finally, I cut the sentiment into strips and glued to the background.
