Big Brush Flower

Today, is a special day for me, not only am I celebrating 24 years of marriage, but I am also hosting the blog over at Faber Castell Design Memory Craft ® here, (I am not sure what time the post goes live, so you may have to check back later) you can see a sneak peak the project below, there are step by step photo instructions too if you want to have a go at re-creating the card on their blog.

I wanted to create a design using the same technique for my blog today and so came up with this simple flower card.

I Inked the acrylic block with Dark Chrome Yellow 109 Stampers Big Brush Pen; from the 'Mixed Media Aquarelle and Ink set 770201', spritzed with water and stamped onto watercolour card, I stamped the flower from Penny Black's 'Petal Party' 30-113 using Deep Scarlet Red Stampers Big Brush Pen; from the 'Mixed Media Aquarelle and Ink set 770200', I then used the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolour pencils from the set to colour in the petals on the flower.

The stamped design was then mounted onto 'Summer Sun' 17-002 Mix and Match cardstock, then onto   'Eyelet White' Embossed Paper ep400 and then stitched to a 'Summer Sun' card blank.

I have lots to share with you all this week, including a video tutorial on crafting with household ironing starch on Wednesday, another photo tutorial on Thursday and on Tuesday I will be sharing with you one of the new Penny Black Christmas designs, so if you get time do check back later in the week!

Hope you all have a wonderful week
Hugs Cathy

Congratulations on your anniversary - hope you have a lovely day.
I'm going to have to try the acrylic block stamping - love the diffused effect & the combination of the white, creamy yellow & red. The red stitching picks the flower out beautifully. Very interesting variety of textures too making this beautifully tactile.
