Hi everyone! For the second floral card design, I wanted to give it a pearlescent touch and make use of the fun debossing technique. Also for this design, I feature the Blooming Branch stamp from Pinkfresh Studio, but you can apply the design to floral stamps you may have in your stash. This series is also a fun way for me to get the most out of the Blooming Branch stamp, which is something I love to do. If you missed part 1, you can read it here.
To keep a soft look to the flowers, I heat embossed them with White Pearl embossing powder. I really love the look of it, especially in combination with the Opal foil in the background which I foiled with the Folk Garden hot foil plate. The debossed look the foil plate gives is subtle and pretty. I found it a perfect way to break up the white space in the background.
If coloring is not really your thing, you can make use of the coordinating layering stencils for the Blooming Branch like I did. I do love to color, but these layering stencils are a fun alternative way to color the image. For these flowers, I ink blended them with Distress Oxides. It might surprise you what colors I used for the leaves!
For the sentiment, I foiled the Perfect Sentiments with Prism foil which matches nicely with the pearlescent look in the rest of the card. As a final embellishment, I added sequins from Karin Joan called Sparkly Sprinkles.
I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
