WPlus9 August Release: florals

Written by: iwona    8 Comments

I’m back with more WPlus9 projects today! I’m loving the new release and I having lots of fun with it despite the creative stupor that still haunts me and a lack of time. I pulled out the Flora & Fauna 2 stamp set today which I was itching to colour and believe me, it was hard to resist watercolouring! Thank you so much, Dawn. HA! Next time. For this card I used my trusty Copics.

I created ambient shading around the flowers using a light blue marker and added a few ink splats. This gorgeous sentiment is a part of the Valentine Wishes set.
Here are the Copics I used:
orange flowers: YR31, YR12, YR09, E07, W5, W7
purple flowers: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29
sky: B0000, B00

I made one more card, this time focusing on the Fresh Cut Containers stamp set with matching Designer Dies. I die cut the watering can from white cardstock and left it un-stamped, but I did stamp the flowers on the die cut pieces and arranged into a bunch. Then I popped it all into a card with the background stamped in grey ink with various designs from Papel Picado and a purple lace ‘fringe’ from Chantilly Trim. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Hand Lettered Thanks.

Thanks for stopping by! xx

  1. *thunk* That was my jaw hitting the floor. It’s still there, by the way, and my cat is inspecting my tonsils, but seriously: your copic skills are AMAHHHHHH-zing. Also, they make me a bit jealous, but your card is something to aspire for and I will practice harder (much harder) now 🙂 Thank you for sharing the colors you used, I love how you used yellows and browns together, wouldn’t have considered that.

    I’ve just purchased the Flora and Fauna 2 and the Papel Picado yesterday and I hope to get them late in the week – can’t wait to put them to paper 🙂
