Today I am sharing Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society August 2019 Release – Lotus Stamp Set and Crafting Die!
Lotus is one of my favorite flowers and I just couldn’t wait to color this one! I had so many coloring ideas and sharing two today, I have two more in the works and will be sharing in the next few weeks.
For my first card I decided to go bold and choose rich autumn colors. I colored the lotus image with alcohol markers, used coordinating crafting die to cut it out then started working on my background.
I used Distress inks in Fired Brick and Wilds Honey for the background panel, splattered it with leftover ink mixed with water, then again with clean water.
Once the panel was dry, I used Essential Stitched Labels Crafting Dies to cut the middle part and popped it up with craft foam.
I white heat embossed the sentiment next, and adhered the lotus flower.
I added Nuvo drops in matching color to finish the card.
For my second card I have colored the beautiful lotus with purple markers and more toned down greens.
I created a light background with a stencil and Distress ink in Broken China.
On a piece of cardstock I stamped the sentiment (from the stamp set) in matching purple ink and die cut it with Rectangle Labels Crafting Dies.
I popped the lotus with foam tape and added purple gems to match the colors of the flower and the sentiment and my card was finished!
