Pink & Teal colour combo: Trio of Gerberas

 Sunshine & Bee designs have recently released some new digital stamps, and it included one of my favourite flowers, the Gerbera! When you purchase this stamp set, you get the stamp in a black outline or light grey outline for no-line colouring.  For this card, I went with a pink & teal colour combo to create a bright, bold and striking card. These colours go well together and pair beautifully with gold accents. So let’s get started.

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR SUNSHINE & BEE DESIGNS - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Creating the pink gerberas

Print the gerbera design out on a laser printer to use for no-line colouring. The laser printer will ensure the ink will not run whether you are using alcohol markers or waterbased markers like Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. 

Once printed, use your choice of colouring medium to colour the flowers in. For this card, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Start adding the dark colours to the shadows and blend out to your lightest colour. The colours I used were: 

  • Pink 025
  • Dark Pink 027
  • Purple 082

After the image is coloured, use a pair of scissors to fussy cut the image out.

Adding the teal

For the card base, trim and fold a piece of Nautical Hero Hues cardstock to create a card base measuring at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Next, using a blending tool and Daydream Catherine Pooler Design ink to ink blend behind in the lower half where the floral will sit. Next, repeat this with Juniper Mist in the top half of the card. 

With a paintbrush, add some gold paint splatters to the card base before foam mounting the flower onto the front. Next, heat emboss in WOW! Metallic Rich Gold embossing powder a sentiment from Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 set onto black card. Trim this down and foam mount onto the front to finish this off.
