So you may be looking at this card thinking it is Pink and includes Flowers so it looks like Laura’s favorite card. But that’s not the fabulous part! Look closer at the flower – both the purple one and the black background ones! The black ones don’t overlap and have this amazing garden/3D effect. The purple one has some fabulous shading which was done with my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities and those leaves are just another flower punched out in Old Olive! How fabulous! Not let’s get started on how I got this amazing look!

For the background, all you do is stamp your first flower (Flower Shop Stamp Set) on the piece of Whispe White cardstock! Now taking the coordinating Pansy Punch, punch a flower from a piece of scrap paper and place it on top of the stamped flower. Now stamp all around the flower. This mask prevents the stamped image from overlapping and creates that amazing look. Move your mask around to cover up other flowers as you move across the paper! Yep, it’s that easy to get that amazing look! 🙂 For the card below, I created an entire background because I just couldn’t get enough of this amazing look!

For the flower, I stamped it with my Memento Pad onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Pansy Punch. I used my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities but only the lightest one and darkest one. I colored the entire flower with the lightest one and then went over the lines of the stamped image with the darkest one. I love using the Blendabilities on my Flower Shop images because I find the images to be so easy to color. This image already has the lines for shading dark and a few of the other images have perfect lines or petals that make shading simple! I’m not the best artist with coloring unless I have these images that make it super easy! 🙂 Love it!

For the leaves, all you need to do is stamp the same flower image that you used for the flower onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock. Punch out the flower with your Pansy Punch and then cut 2 petals out and attach it to the back of your flower! It’s that simple!
