Cheerful Floral Hugs
by Trina Pham


Hello and happy Good Friday to those who celebrate!  I’m using the Cheerful Floral stamp set again, but this time, I also used it with the coordinating layering stencil set.

The floral image was stamped off-the-edge with Fade Out ink onto a Bristol panel for a no-line coloring look.   A light color dye ink would work as well.  Then following most of the steps from the stencil guide, ink blended gradient colors of dye inks in pink, purple, yellow, green and gray over the stencils.   I decided to keep the leaves simpler, skipped the layers for the leaves and ink blended in the center vein.


Once the coloring/stencilling was completed, masked the image with the included mask and applied gray ink around the image to give it more dimension and help ground it a bit.  Stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink directly on the panel and heat embossed it with clear glitter embossing  powder.  Hugs was an unused piece from my stash that had been die cut out with the matching die.  Adhered the panel to a white card base to finish.


The layering stencils makes coloring easy.   And that does it for my card.   Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend, especially if you are celebrating Easter.
