Today I have a couple of cards to share with you. They are featuring EunJi’s new digital stamp set: Bloom Rose. Bloom Rose set contains two gorgeous and unique rose diffuser images, one large rose background and one single rose image. I used the rose diffuser images for today’s cards. You can see EunJi’s beautiful cards using other stamps on her blog!
Before I started printing, I prepared the image file by cutting them into individual images using GIMP.
I kept my first card simple. I printed the diffuser bottle with a rose on Canson mixed media paper and watercolored the image. I printed it with a reduced opacity so the lines look subtle. I’m using Keynote app. It’s very handy as you can adjust quite everything on it.
After done coloring I cut one side of the panel using a border die from A2 Scalloped Borders 3 by spellbinders, tied some natural twine around the panel and foam mounted it on a yellow cardbase.
The sentiment from Painted Peonies by The Ton was gold heat embossed on some yellow cardstock, cut with a stitched circle die and added onto the twine. I added some yellow and clear sequins to finish off the card.
This is the second card.
To print the image for the second card I cut out the diffuser bottle and the butterflies on GIMP and placed them as I wanted on a Keynote page. The paper is Canson mixed media paper, which I use if I want to watercolor the digital images.
I used Color Burst to watercolor the image. After done coloring I added golden and white dots using gel pens, and doodled some swirls and dots on the butterflies.
I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die (The Ton). I trimmed the edges a bit to make the panel slightly smaller than A2 to show the hot pink cardbase on the right side and the bottom of the card.
The sentiment is from Grateful Heart by Penny Black. I stamped it directly onto the colored panel in Noir. I finished off the card by adding some iridescent and clear sequins.
