Guest Designer Tracy Ware~Lotus Flower Card
Hello Blank Page Muse fans! Tracy here popping in for the February challenge, which is to use multiple Blank Page Muse stamps. I tend to always gravitate to flowers and leaves regardless of the company, and I’m staying true to myself with this card too. Today, I’ll be sharing a card using the Lotus Flower on Stem with Small Dragonfly Art, and a few stamps from the Dandelion Wishes with Butterflies Art set.
I began this card by creating a pale, smooshed background using Distress Inks. When that was dry, I added a little bit of splatter using watered down black gouache. I adhered my inked background to a black panel for some contrast.
I stamped the Lotus Flower twice with dye ink and colored the images with Copic markers. This stamp has a small dragonfly with it, but I only wanted the flowers, so I fussy cut those out. The panel still needed some interest in my opinion, so I fiddled around with different things and ended up deciding on a black, stitched frame.
I adhered my black frame to my panel using foam tape for dimension. I stamped the Creativity stamp, and a small butterfly from the Dandelion Wishes with Butterflies Art set directly on my inked background using dye ink again.
I arranged the Lotus Flowers on my panel to figure out my placement, and then adhered those to my panel with foam tape as well. I added some leaf details to the card using liquid glue and tucking those underneath the flowers.
I colored my second butterfly using Copic markers and a pink, glitter gel pen for something sparkly. Unfortunately, I was unable to capture that sparkle in my pictures. I adhered that butterfly using foam tape as well so that it overlaps the frame just a bit.
I really like how this card turned out! This would be a pretty card with a pale pink or yellow background too. Have you used this Lotus Flower stamp before? Let me know how you used it, and leave me a comment. Thanks for joining me today on the Blank Page Muse Blog. Head over to the Blank Page Muse Instagram account for even more inspiration.
