Sunny Studio - Rainbow Spring Bouquet

jeudi 9 mars 2023

Hey there,

I'm back on Sunny Studio's blog with more flowers to brighten your day! Today's card features Spring Bouquet, a beautiful layering stamp set that includes three types of flowers: daffodil, hyacinth and iris. I decided to go with hyacinths only in order to create like a field of flowers, and the first thing I did was to stamp six of them on Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock using distress oxide inks. Here are the color combinations I picked for each flower & greenery:

- Pink: spun sugar + kitsch flamingo + picked raspberry
- Orange: dried marigold + carved pumpkin + ripe persimmon
- Yellow: squeezed lemonade + mustard seed + fossilized amber
- Green: shabby shutters + mowed lawn + rustic wilderness
- Blue: tumbled glass + salty ocean + blueprint sketch
- Purple: shaded lilac + wilted violet + villainous potion
- Greenery: mowed lawn + rustic wilderness

Because Spring is coming soon, I decided to add a few bees. These are from Sunflower Fields, and again, I used distress oxide inks to stamp the different parts: mustard seed for the body, black soot for the dark details, and lost shadow for the wings. Once the flowers, leaves and bees were done, I cut everything using the coordinating dies, and moved on to the background.

To be able to fit the six flowers on my card, I went for a slimline design. I cut an 8,5 x 3,5 inches Strathmore bristol smooth panel, and I did some stenciling using distress oxide inks. On the lower part, I created a hill border using shabby shutters + mowed lawn. And on the upper part, a cloudy sky using tumbled glass + salty ocean. Next I cut another 8,5 x 3,5 inches Strathmore bristol smooth panel, and cut a slim grass border out of it using a die from Picket Fence, and I colored that grass border using shabby shutters + mowed lawn oxide inks.

Next I stamped my "I'm so thankful for your friendship" greeting from Words Of Gratitude on the grass border using black ink, I attached the border at the bottom of my slimline panel using foam squares, and then the hyacinths, leaves and bees using foam squares again. And finally I added highlights and details on the images using a white gel pen.
