Kind, So Kind


I've really been into my Copics lately, but I don't want to forget my other coloring mediums!  I sat down a while back to play a little bit more with my watercolor, and regular colored pencils.  I stamped out several images and was trying a few different techniques.  The flower on today's card was my favorite of the images from that little play time, so I had to make it into a pretty card.  

I used two stamp sets from The Stamp Market on today's card.  The floral image and sentiment are from the Bouquet of Kindness stamp set, and the striped piece was created with the Diagonal Pinstripe stamp

I began the card by stamping the floral image onto a card front sized piece of white card stock, I also stamped a full card front sized piece of the stripes.  The remainder of the striped piece can be saved for other projects.  I then colored in the image using my Color Burst pencils.   I used a flicking motion on the petals of the flower, similar to the motion you would use to create lines in hair.  Each layer of color was added using a light touch, so that they would all blend together well. 

Pencils Used:
03, 04, 09, 19, 21, 22, 28, 29, 34, 39, 40, 41

I decided on a 1/2" strip of the stripes, so I laid the piece on the image - right at the edge - and marked where the strip would start.  Then I used a craft knife to cut around my floral image so that I could tuck the striped piece behind the image.  If you cut right along the edge of the stamped line, then any overcut that you may have made will blend in with the stamping once everything is glued down.  I used liquid adhesive to attach the strip so that I had a bit more time to get it perfectly in place. 

I then stamped and heat embossed the "Kind" sentment, and then stamped the "So Kind" sentiment beneath it.  The MISTI allowed me to line this up into the perfect spot.  I matted my panel to a piece of Mirror Gold card stock, and then attached that to a Whip Cream card base.  A few dots of Nuvo Gloss White Crystal Drops finished off the card. 

This floral stamp is so pretty on it's own, and is gorgeous with a variety of different coloring techniques.  What would you use to color it up?
