I Brake For….Hyacinth!

The YouTube ID of Insert video URL or ID here is invalid. Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday and I Brake  For Stamps.  Today’s card features one of the new floral images recently released.

The stamp is called Hyacinth and can be found here as a single stamp, or part of a larger set called  Lovely Florals found here.  All are beautifully drawn and color up quickly.

I used three blue copic markers for the blossoms and three YG markers for the leaves and stem.  The background was embossed with a swiss dot folder but it did not stand out against the base card so I rubbed a white pigment inkpad over it to bring out the embossing.  Some lace ribbon and blue raffia were added for more texture.  I know sequins are all the rage now, but I just don’t like the look of them and I have a ton of rhinestones so I added those to the bottom – they were clear and I colored them with a blue copic marker to coordinate with the rest of the card.

Usually with flower images I color up a few test images before making the final color decision.  In this case I colored up one using RV copic markers.  It came out very nice so I decided to make a second card, using the same design layout and base card.  Here is that version.
