Hello everyone! Spellbinders's Through the Arbour Garden is so very beautiful. I am starting out with a card featuring Queen Anne's Lace & Ladybugs. This bloom with its light and airy flower clusters is large and will create a gorgeous statement piece on a card. Be sure to check out the rest of the collection! I know you will love it! I do!
The die with tiny, multiple flowers was cut seven times from white card stock.
Flower centres were created with a dot of Copic marker YG63.
The flowers were shaped on the shaping foam mat with the smallest ball tool found in Susan's Garden Ultimate Tool Kit. The centres were simply depressed.
The die that cuts one large and medium base for the flower layers was cut from green card stock two times.
The flowers were first adhered to one side of these bases and then on the back of one large and two medium ones. Flowers were not adhered to the centres of the bases
The layers were assembled starting with those without flowers on the back The centres were depressed with the medium ball tool and each layer adhered offsetting it from the previous one. To finish it off, a few single flowers were adhered to the flower centre to cover the green card stock.
I used five leaves, They were detailed with the YG63 Copic marker.
Three leafy stems from the Victorian Garden Foliage die set were cut from dark green card stock. The round leaves were shaped with the medium ball tool. The small ball tool was used to score a central vein on the other leaves. Tweezers were used to grasp the base of each leaf and they were pinched upwards.
An ink blended background was created on Bristol Smooth Card Stock with Distress Oxide Inks Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio.
The panel was spattered with black water colour paint. When dry, it was trimmed to 4" by 5 1/4" and adhered to an A2 sized, black card base.
The sentiment from Fresh Picked Sentiments was cut from black foam, dark green card stock and gold glitter card stock. The dark green die cut was adhered to the foam. The gold glitter die cut was offset on the green one and the stacked sentiment adhered to the card front.
The dark green leaves were adhered to the panel followed by the flower. The small leaves were tucked in under the flower clusters.
The card was embellished with some additional little flowers.
