Joanna Sheen samples - Pressed flowers 3
This is another of my Joanna Sheen samples that I have made with the new pressed flowers stamps. This is from the rose set (there is also daisy and narcissi). I decided though to colour the flowers in red to give them the impression of a poppy for a bit of a change and to show how versatile they are. They are £9.99 each set and are P&P free from Joanna Sheen.
I stamped the image out 3 times and cut the card into 3 squares so that the flower was roughly in the middle. I then coloured them in with poppy and cardinal red promarkers and a bit of grey for shading and in the centres. I then used a bit of glossy accents in the centres of the flowers, popped some clear seed beads on which I then went over with my black promarker when it was dry. I mounted these squares onto black card I cut a square of black and white spotty paper, inked the edges with my old black inkpad then mounted onto black card. I then attached all the bits to my card and I printed a sentiment off the computer – font is Harrington. I think the combination of the bright red with the black and white is very striking.
