'Punky' Deco Flowers (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great week.

I have two cards today that feature a flower from the new Punky Flowers.  This set has so many fun Steampunk flowers but also includes a couple of Deco designs which I love.


The background on the above card was once again created with Dylusions inks.   I over-stamped with a texture stamp from Texture Fragments  with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  I stamped the images with Black Stazon Ink.  The Deco Corner is from the Steampunk Butterfly & the Sentiment is from Birthday Words.

After stamping the images I removed some of the Dylusions Inks with water (add water with a brush & blot with paper towel).   I painted the images with Tom Bow Markers and highlighted with black & white pens  I also added liquid pearls.


The card below is smaller and a rescue from the recycle bin.    I used molding paste with TCW Mini Pomegranate stencil.   I found the stencil design overpowering and threw it out into the recycle waste bin.   Later I had second thoughts so I picked it back out, cropped it, painted over with acrylic paints and decided to create another card with it.


I stamped the image with Stazon and highlighted with a larger tip black pen which makes it stand out and again highlighted with a white pen as well.

Thanks for your visit & have a great day,
Shirley

  5. I had to smile about the recycling bin - I've just done something very similar !! Your colours are absolutely delightful & I absolutely love the way you have framed the first card using those corners. The accenting on both cards with the black & white is beautiful. The matting on the second is gorgeous - thought it looked a bit familiar & then realised I'd used something very similar. I'm having a strange trip around blogland today - with themes & colours chiming in with what I'm working on.
