Artist Team Bouquet

Welcome to April's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. Each month the team presents a themed challenge or technique. The  purpose of the blog hop is to demonstrate the beauty of paper crafts.
If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Donna's Blog, you're in the right spot.
Each member of the team is pulling inspiration from the Stamped Bouquet unmounted rubber stamps that debuted at the Club Scrap 2016 Retreat. You can see the retreat projects created here.  For this blog hop, I decided I wanted to keep a fairly monochromatic theme with kraft backgrounds.

1.  Stamp rose flower several times with watermark ink.
2.  Stamp cluster flower with watermark ink.
3.  Heat emboss all images with white embossing powder.
4.  Color roses with white pencil.
5.  Cut out several different layers from each rose.
6.  Layer with foam circles. Add bling.
7.  Stencil image on background panel with White ink. Heat set.
8.  Stamp sentiment on paper strip.
9.  Add elements together.
1. Place washi tape on background panel just below center.
2. Stamp cluster image with watermark ink and heat emboss in white.
3. Remove washi tape to leave a space.
4. Stamp sentiment in brown ink.
5. Color in image with white pencil.
6. Add small washi tape to left border.
7. Add gold Nuvo drops for interest.
1.  Distress edges of background panel.
2.  Stamp or hand draw frame.
3.  Die cut oval. Stamp sentiment and sprigs.
4.  Color sprigs with watermark pen.
5.  Stamp flower and leaves and heat emboss in white.
6.  Color flower with white pencil.
7.  Adhere oval with foam adhesive.
8.  Assemble pieces. Add gem.

These two cards are similar to above but with slightly different elements.

Color with a watermark pen.
 A slightly large piece of washi tape was used to create a sentiment space. Background splattered with gelatos.
Thank you for hopping with us today.  I hope you've enjoyed these simple, mostly monochromatic cards. Please continue on to see what amazing project Tina has created using these beautiful stamps.
