"Flower shop" card using the masking technique Stampin' Up!® #GDP123

"Flower Shop" card using the Masking technique. #GDP123

Today my card was designed for the #GDP for this week, and the theme is New Beginnings.

I thought flowers as a gift to someone especially as they are celebrating a new beginning would work perfect together.

I used watercolour card as I was also using my blends.

So before I started the masking I cut out 3 images of the flower I was using, just on grid paper, I applied removable adhesive to the back of each one, so I easily remove and replace after I had stamped each image.

After I filled the card with all the flowers I wanted I started to colour each one in with my Stampin' Blends, This took a fair while.  Because not only did I colour them in I also used my watercolour pencils to help bring out the darker area's of each image.

This was my finished card. The Flower shop stamp set is one of my favourite stamp set that Stampin' Up! sells. I think it's perfect for a new beginnings card. I added some white gel pen also to lift each image and then added wink of Stella for a shine.
