Fabulous Florette’s FANTASTIC Technique!

The countdown is on… Easter is officially in just a few hours, SO exciting! So much to do to get ready for it.  We always watch the 10 Commandments as a family tradition which my kids have really grown to enjoy- and it marks the start of summer here in our house.  Instead of filling their baskets with candy, that will end up in MY tummy, I fill them with swimming gear.  I fill them with all kinds of things from goggles to floaty’s.  So before I head off to finish up prep for our night of movie watching and egg hunt I have a project to share!
I have to give a shout-out to my friend Krista Jenson for the technique I used for this card.  She created a similar card using this technique for this weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge, she is SOOOO crafty! Check out what she taught me-
Fabulous Florettes Card
These flowers are SOOOOO cool!! It really is like a faux copic marker style effect.  I love the look, and although the drastic color shading isn’t that visible in the photo- you HAVE to see it in person! I simply stamped the FABULOUS FLORETTE’S images using VersaMark ink onto the Raspberry Ripple cardstock– then covered with white embossing powder and heat set.

Then I took my Raspberry Ripple marker and shaded the inside of the flower petals- It totally gives you that color variation that you see in real life flowers!  Then I finished off the card with a bit of ESSENTIALS DESIGNER FABRIC which I just ripped and gathered and secured to a strip of sticky strip- so EASY!!

Such an easy technique and SOOO pretty!  I used the colors from the Color Throw-down Challenge Blog, and I used the sketch from Mojo Monday- Such a fun card, that can be used for almost ANY reason!
