Hey! Hope your Friday has started well! By the way, Fridays are the best days of the week in my opinion… therefore I’m sharing two birthday cards… logically or not 😉
For these cards, I used a new stamp from Maker Forte called Sketched Peony by Alex Syberia Design, and it goes so well with a dramatic background. I have longed to use this stamp since I first saw it.
I started by making a simple masking technique where I stamped a bouquet of flowers in the bottom right corner. I colored everything with Copic markers. I finished by drawing some yellow lines on the tops of the petals to make the flowers a little more interesting.

I decided to stamp a few dots to create a little more interest in this simple one layer card. That stamp you can find in Oh What Fun stamp set. I also used a stencil called 3D Background to create a dramatic background for this card.
Card number two has a little more dimension to it. I used the same flower stamps, but this time I stamped them in versafin ink so I could paint them with watercolors. I chose red tones that went in the purple direction. I cut out all the flowers and used foum tape to the backside. This creates som fun dimention to the card. I love this background, it’s so dramatic with black and glitter. Used Eclipse black paper and glitter.
