I'm Missing You



Happy day crafty friends! I'm super excited to have you here today to share this card I made using the new Concord & 9th Flower Cart Stamp set. I have a vision of this stamp set being used a lot in the future. Ha! Ha! The cobblestone sidewalk is from Simon Says Stamps, which is darling in it's own right. I used a cloud stencil from MFT stamps to complete the background and added some water color splatters to complete the look.

 

Card Instructions

To start Id cut a card panel 4" x 5 1/4" and used a stencil to place some clouds down. I really like Altenew's Dew Drops, and used it for my clouds. Next, I used a wet paint brush and saturated it with some blue water color (I chose the darkest blue on my pallet, but you can use any color you prefer!) and added some splatter to give the background a tad more texture.


I stamped and colored all of the images using random Copic Markers, and ran them through my die cut machine. For the cart I used E31, E35, E37, and E39. The gold pots were colored with Y26, Y27, Y29. Otherwise, I did not really pay too close attention to the color I was laying down, but I did want to make sure all of the greens were different tones to give it some depth.


I trimmed the cobblestone down, and used foam tape to place it at the bottom of my card panel. I wanted the extra depth to arrange additional flower pots around my cart, and I'm really pleased with the final results! Next, I arranged my die cut pieces the way that I wanted them and adhered them to the card panel. I didn't want all of the flower pots to be the same height so I place them at different levels, and trimmed the excess. I placed foam tape to the top of the flower cart, and glued it at the bottom to hold it in place.


You can never go wrong with adding small details to your art. It really makes it more unique to your style, so I used a shimmer pen and went over the flowers, and also applied some glossy accents to the mums, and a couple of the cacti. I'm really trying to take a little bit more time in adding these small details to my cards, because they make such a HUGE difference!

 

For this card I added the city background by MFT Stamps. I initially had plans on coloring the background, but I thought the flower cart would become invisible, so I left a pop of color in the stones and flower cart. What do you think?


I'm always so happy to hang out with you (even on a virtual level), and look forward to our next visit. I have included another card that I created using this stamp set, and have plans for a couple more. Thanks again for stopping by today; have an amazing afternoon!
