Good morning, Sharon here with a post using 2 floral stamp sets. My main image is using Maker Forte and Alex Syberia’s Beautiful Magnolia stamp set.

This stamp is stunning on it’s own but I wanted a background too so I’m sharing my process for this in this post.

As I was going to be coloring with alcohol markers, I stamped it on to white card with Remarkable Eclipse Ink Pad.

I stamped it again on to masking paper and fussy cut this out making sure I had removed all the landlocked areas to. Some of the branches are fine so when cutting they came apart but this didn’t matter as I could just lay the extra parts in place and they would stick to cover my image.

Once the image was masked I laid The Cobblestone Stencil over it and fixed in place with some tape and magnets.

Using Coral Keys Color Hive Ink I lightly blended the ink through the stencil – yes it’s a cobblestone pattern but I think it looks great as a patterned background. I removed the masks to reveal my clean image.

I found an image of a magnolia branch online and chose the Copic Markers nearest to the colors as I could so I could color the flowers realistically.

Magnolia flowers grow on the tops of the branches so I decided to make a landscape card at this point. I colored the flowers, petal casings and branches in my chosen colors:

The sentiments included with this stamp set were a little small for the look I wanted to achieve. I decided to chose one from Be You Dahlia stamp set which says BE YOU AND YOU WILL BE FINE. I wanted this to stand out from the pink on my card so I used a piece of black card and heat embossed the strip using Color Hive Clear Ink Pad and Ranger Seafoam White Embossing Powder.

I then constructed my card, I covered an A2 Side Fold Card Base with pink cardstock. My image was trimmed to 4×5.5in and centered on the pink card, adhered in place with foam tape. I then decided to add some splatters with with the Splatter Rubber Stamp Style 1 and some pink ink.

Finally, I fixed my sentiment in place with foam squares.

Thank you for taking time to read my post, I hope I have given you some inspiration!
