Floral Musica by Zoe

Good morning I hope you are all well? Today it's my turn to share with you one of my projects using one if the gorgeous new stamps, there are 4 in the floral selection all with a really unique background, I've used the Floral Musica which I stamped using Black Archival inkpad onto an inked background, I used Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Evergreen Bough, I spritzed some water which I cupped into my hand first then clapped my hands together to get a more splattered effect, I dabbed with a dry cloth and heat dried before stamping. I stamped the image onto another piece of card and coloured it in using Picked Raspberry distress ink which I added a touch of mica powder to the water and painted and then adding shade using the same colour Distress marker, the leaves and foliage I "Faux Bleached" using a water brush and dabbing dry and adding a white gel pen on the edges just to make it "pop" some more.

I used a die to cut out my image and mats and fussy cut out just the flower heads which I used a blob of hot glue to get some dimension, the sentiment is from the Birthday Words stamp set.

I've added a close up photo with hopes you can see some of the subtle shimmer from the mica.


Have a wonderful day, don't forget to pop back to check out what the wonderful Design Team have created xx Zoe xx



  1. A beautiful card, I love how you have put this together, it is so effective and great colour choices too. x

  2. Absolutely stunning Zoe! Love the background and faux bleached foliage. Adding dimension by fussy cutting the flower heads is one of my favourite things to do too.
