Honey Doo Crafts: Coloured highlight stamping

Hello, hope you’re having a good week. This is an extra post as this card was produced as part of my work for Honey Doo Crafts TV show which goes live on Hochanda tomorrow, so make sure you tune and check it out! I have called this card coloured highlight stamping as I choose to colour only one of the stamped floral images for a focal point. This draws your attention to the flower, and the stamped monochromatic images in the background give add interest and depth.  Of course to colour these florals I used my favourite pencils – Faber Castel Polychromos. 

coloured highlight stamping card Process overview

Start off by stamping in versamark in the larges floral from Fleur stamp set from Honey Doo crafts onto Strathmore tone gray paper along with a few of the leaves. Alternatively, you can stamp this onto kraft card too. It is best to do this in stamping platform if you have one as it is easier to colour the floral image in before heat setting it. 

Using a selection of colours, colour your floral in. The lines of the stamp indicate the areas where there are folds and shadows in the petals. Follow these lines to add your darkest colour and gradually blend this out to a light colour for interest.  Return your image back into your platform and stamp once more in versamark ink. Cover with Opaque bright white embossing powder from WOW! and heat

Fussy cut out the flower and leaves and put these to one side. For the background, decided on where you want the focus to be and stamp a couple of the smaller floral images around this area. Heat set these in white powder to add contrast against the background to tie in with the coloured flower. Apply some white paint splatters to the background by diluting a little bit of white acrylic paint with water. 

Making sure you background is dry, foam mount the coloured flower and leaves to give added dimension. I added a stamped embossed sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set from Honey Doo Crafts. The card was foam mounted onto a white card based and finished off with some colour corresponding jewels.
