Lavender Tea – Oh So Pretty

Afternoon, how are we today? It’s wet & chilly here in Lancashire, I was only saying the other day the weather seemed to be improving!!!

 

 

Today I’m sharing a make using the Polkadoodles Stamp Soup Lavender Tea stamp set, can you tell I lurvee this new collection??

 

Lavender Tea Oh So Pretty, Polkadoodles, Stamp Soup, Lavender Tea

 

Step by Step

 

1. Using a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller than A5, create your background using Creative Expressions Colour Cloud blending inks.

2. Use stencils to create interest in the background using the same Colour Cloud blending inks, I used stencils from Imagination Crafts and Pinflair/Viva Decor. Frame the background by using the Colour Cloud inks to ink around the edge of the card stock.

3. Stamp your flower using the Stamp Soup Lavender Tea stamp set and black Memento ink on your background. I stamped the whole flower stem and flower head, you could just stamp the stem because the flower is decoupaged up in later steps. I personally find it easier to stamp the first layer before decoupaging to make sure I don’t end up with a strange shaped flower, plus I can add a little extra dimension to the flower by having the first stamped layer.

4. Colour the stem with Faber Castell Pitt pens.

5.Using another piece of white card stock stamp the large petals, text and smaller petals, using black Memento ink. 

6. Colour the petals and text using the Colour Cloud blending inks. I added spots to the larger petals using a Graph’it white shaker pen.

7. Using a black Sakura Micron add faux stitching to the edge of the background.

8. Once the petals have been cut out, add some dimension to them by shaping them with a bone folder. 

9. Cut out the text and frame using wiggly lines with a black Sakura Micron pen.

10. Adhere the background to your A5 card blank using 3D foam pads.

11. Adhere the petals to the main flower using Pinflair 3D glue gel, add a black Card Kandi for the centre of the flower. Arrange the smaller petals as though they are blowing in the wind around the main flower and once your happy with their position glue with Pinflair 3D glue gel.

12. Glue the text down with pva glue.
