I love flowers but hate gardening, so coloring flower stamps are pretty much the next best thing! Dahlias are so common in PNW in the fall, but I still can’t get enough of them! I love picking them up at the farmers market!
To create this card, I started by stamping all the images from the all the images from the Darling Dahlias stamp set (I ended up using only one of the large flowers) with intense black ink on to heavy weight white card stock. I colored then in using copic markers (combinations listed below) and die cut them using the coordinating dies.
To create the background, I created a blue inked ombre background using distress oxide inks, once dry, I layered it with the basketweave stencil and added some white pigment ink (one of my fav techniques! Once it dried, I arranged the flower using foam tape for dimension, added jewels to match and finished off with a die cut sentiment “hello” from the bitty buzzwords die set.
I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!
