In today’s video, I share with you a unique technique for creating a beautiful colorful bouquet with minimal to zero coloring! This technique is prefect those times when you might not want to or have time to color. Plus it highlights all those fine details in the intricate stamp sets like the stunning Zinnia Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Crafts.
Colorful Flowers with Minimal to Zero Coloring
Watch below or on my YouTube channel.
First, I stamped the Zinnia onto a light pink colored cardstock and used multi-inking and selective inking techniques to create a gradation on the petals and center with various Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Ripe Persimmon, Abandoned Coral, & Festive Berries).
I then stamped the Zinnia again but this time on light green cardstock in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks and only focusing on the leaves. Then stamped the medium flower in this set in Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin on light yellow cardstock and then the small grouping of flowers in Tumbled Glass onto white cardstock.
Once I finished stamping all the images I then just slightly colored them in with my copics to add some additional depth. After I colored my images in I then fussy cut them out and then diecut an A2 panel of colored cardstock with the Micro Grid Panel 2 Die. I then adhered the panel onto a A2 top-folding card base and then adhered my flowers with foam tape. Lastly I finished the cards with a white heat embossed sentiment from the Zinnia Stamp Set stamped onto black cardstock.
Though I colored my flowers in for my first card I chose not to for my second. I just repeated all the same steps as above but simply skipped the copic coloring part.
I think both cards turned out great and I love how with this technique allows you to still get bright colorful florals whether you color or not!
I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for stopping by!!
