Concord & 9th Lily Stamp Set – ScrapnStamp.ca
The lily stamp has wonderful line art, thereby encouraging this stamper to go wild (so-to-speak) with my own interpretation of the flower in terms of colour, shading and texture.
I placed Concord & 9th Lily Stamp on Tonic’s Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Applied Memories Black Dye Ink on the Lily Stamp and pressed the image onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Card Stock.
Allowing the image to air dry completely before using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers .
I layered the markers in stripes of colour. The lightest shade around the petals edges working darker toward the centre of each petal. All five petals were coloured the same way, the only exception was when a section of a flower petal fell behind a petal that was in front. In order to add depth , a darker shade was added the the portion behind and a lighter shade to the area in front. This makes a cast shadow .
Where the colour stripes were side by side , the lighter of the two markers was used to blend the line. Making sure to clean the brush tip frequently. Once this was finished, the solid image stamp and dotty pattern stamp (both in the Lily Stamp Set) were inked with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Red Marker and stamped onto the freshly blended flower image.
The flower stem was coloured in the same fashion as the flower by adding stripes of colour , with the darker shades laid on the left hand side. The lighter, on the right of the stem. The area between each stripe was blended with the lighter shade of the two, making sure to clean the tip frequently.
The stamped image was outlined very lightly with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker in No.036 – Light Blue. This colour was pulled out farther with No. 302 Haze Blue. An aqua brush with a fine tip spread the ink out a smidgeon further , essentially fading the line.
This was set aside to air dry.
Once the ink was dry “Thinking of ” and “You” stamps were inked with VersaMark Watermark Ink Pad and stamped onto the front panel. Seth Apter Embossing Powder – Deep Sea was dusted over the freshly stamped words and melted with a heat tool. VersaMark Watermark Pen was applied to the flowers Stamens. Stampendous Embossing Powder – Topaz was applied to the flower Stamens Anther and Nuvo Embossing Powder – Jet Black was applied to the Stamen Filament. A heat tool was used to melt the embossing powders .
A small bow was tied with ribbon from my stash. The ribbon closely matched the melted embossed sentiment colour. The ribbons tails were trimmed and attached to the stem, just below the flower with a Glue Dot.
Finishing the Card:
The Zig coloured panel was trimmed to (14 cm x 10.2 cm) 5 – 1/2″ x 4″ , ensuring the image stayed centred. Be Creative Tape 5mm was applied to the back of the panel and adhered to the mirror card layer on the card front.
A (14 cm x .6 cm ) 1/4″ x 5 -1/2″ strip of Tonic Craft Perfect Mirror Card in Silky Sky was attached to the inside card base , vertically to the right hand side edge with liquid adhesive. A white card stock panel for the inside card base was cut to (14 cm x 10.2 cm) 5-1/2 x 4″ and stamped with Hero Arts Ink. This was attached flush to the score mark with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
