Water Color Camellia!

Friends I am back with another card for heartfelt creations using the Camellia Carnations flowers.This card has lot of stencils in the background, colors dripping and then the vibrant camellias.



Instructions

The final card measures 6” x 4.5”. Start by scoring and cutting a Black card stock that measures 4.5”x12”, score at 6” and create the card base. Cut a 5.8”x4.3” white card stock and distress the sides using black soot distress ink. For the front card base take a water color paper which measures 5.5” x 4.1”.Take any stencil of your choice and create a stencil background using some texture paste. Heat set and sprinkle some water to wet the surface. Later on an acrylic block splash some black soot distress ink to splash the stenciled background. Once you receive the desired look heat set the surface.Stamp and die cut some large and small Carnation by stamping using Vermillion Archival Ink. Color the flowers using sunflower and shape the petals using 3D basic flower shaping molds. Shade the leaves using the crushed olive distress ink. Stamp and die cut some filler leaves using the black soot and keep it white.To arrange the bouquet, use some cheese cloth, pearl stamens and leaves assemble all the shaped flowers and leaves. Tuck in the die cut holiday filigree at the bottom of the flower bouquet. Sprinkle some black soot on the the white surface.To finish the card tuck in the Congratulations Sentiments.
