When I saw the Concord & 9th Tree Ring stamp on #simonsaysstamp I thought it would look great contrasted with some soft flowers…. so had to order it! And the Thinking of You Wednesday Challenge seemed like a great opportunity to test out that theory.
I started by stamping the flower branch on a white card and then stamped it again on white matte cardstock. I coloured the large flowers with watercolour crayons (applied with a watercolour brush) and added some accents with alcohol ink markers. I also stamped the flower branch on a scrap of paper, which I cut out and used as a mask when stamping the tree ring directly onto the card.
I then cut out the three large flowers from the cardstock and attached them to the card (over the matching flower) — one directly to the card and the other two with foam tape to create dimension.
I highlight the leaves and flowers with glitter glue, added sequins, and stamped the sentiment directly to the card. As a finishing touch, I highlighted inside and around the outside of the tree ring with watercolour crayons (applied with a watercolour brush).
