Post 138: Oval Floral Card

Hi Friends!!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, I truly appreciate it :)

I'd like to share a spring themed oval shaped floral card today :) I have never created an oval shaped card so this was lots of fun to do. The colors used here are pinks, yellows, greys and v light brown. I love the soft water colored look created in the background :)

Synopsis of the process:

I have used stitched oval shape nesting dies for this. The card panel is canson watercolor paper on which a water colored background of a gradient of spring colors was created with zig markers and an aqua brush. Then the flowers and leaves were stamped from the winnie & walter stamp set- a tree for all seasons (used the small stamps in that set) to create the floral clusters using a mix of pink, yellow and grey colored inks from my stash. Flower centers and highlights were added to some of the images using memento ink pens. The sentiment was then stamped with archival ink- magenta hue color and 3 enamel dots were added to finish the card. 

List of Supplies:

1. Winnie & Walter Stamp- A tree for all seasons 
2. Ranger Archival ink- magenta hue and chrome yellow
3. Stampin Up inkpads- Melon Mambo and Blushing bride 
4. Memento Dye Inkpad- London Fog
5. Ranger Dye Inkpad- pink gumball 
6. Canson Montval Watercolor paper
7. Iris cardstock
8. DCAM- Double Stitched oval die set 
9. Enamel Dots
10. Zig clean color real brush pens
11. Aqua brush
12. Memento Pens
13. Tombow mono multi glue
14. Tissue Tape

Here are a couple of pictures of the card :

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Winnie & Walter- March Color Combo with Heather H. (The colors are inspired from the mood board and a w & w stamp set has been used for stamping)

HLS April Watercolor challenge (the background is watercolored with zigs)

Uniko challenge #40 (Spring themed card also the oval looks like an egg so I suppose it fits into the easter twist too :) )
