Grungy Flower (by Nikki K)

Hello everyone, today sees the final post by our Guest Team member Nikki K. Nikki has created another sneak peek card using the fabulous new stamps that we shared on this month's TV shows on Hochanda. The rest of the Design Team will be sharing their projects next month.

Morning everyone,

this is my third Guest post this month, and I've loved using the brand new stamps from Chocolate Baroque. Today I'm sharing a card I made after the TV shows, with some leftovers!

Start by stamping Floral Grunge around a card blank in black ink. You just need to cover enough of the card to show behind a panel.

Stamp end emboss one flower in black ink with clear embossing, cut out just the flower, no stem.

I had a leftover piece of card with Brushos on from another make, and liked part of it, which I cut into a panel and distressed around the edges. I stamped the Floral Grunge flower and embossed in clear onto the panel.

I used acrylic paint in Yellow Oxide to colour the flowers on the card and the single flower, and coloured the centres in Pyrole Red. I watered the paint down to a wash, to imitate watercolour.

Before assembling the card, I spattered Pyrole Red paint over the centre panel, to tie in the centres of the flowers to the rest of the card.

Attach the panel to the centre of the card base, and layer the single flower up on top with 3D foam pads, and it's done.

Best Wishes,

Nikki K
