Painted Harvest Beautiful Bouquet - two cool

Inspired by Shannon Jaramillo at Shannon Kay Paperie.

Painted Harvest Beautiful Bouquet Card

I predict that the Painted Harvest stamp set will be a big, BIG seller from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  It's awesome!  The two-step sunflower images are designed for easy layering and provide a beautiful, watercolor look.

Most of the samples I've seen are inked in varying shades of yellows and oranges that typically represent these late-summer flowers.  But I wanted to try some alternate colors that weren't quite as "fall" looking.  The result was a much more soft & serene card that is ideal for birthday or thinking of you cards any time of the year!

Pretty Painted Flowers—I started with a 5" x 3-3/4" Whisper White piece for the stamped background. To create each of the three flower images, I stamped the larger Painted Harvest images in Soft Sky two times, directly over the top of each other, rotated just slightly to create the illusion of more petals.  I stamped again with the detailed flower stamp in Soft Sky over the top.  I love that you don't need to line up the petals and flowers perfectly to get a nice-looking flower.  They look amazing every time!  I stamped the flower centers in Crumb Cake twice, directly over the top of each other, and rotated slightly to better fill in the white edges. 
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped a Beautiful Bouquet greeting in Soft Suede.  I love that these flowers look fantastic with phrases from lots of different sets!

Leaves & Dots—I stamped the watercolor leaves image in Pear Pizzazz in-between the flowers, then added some dot clusters in Crumb Cake ink to fill in the blank spots.  I mounted the layer onto a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" Crumb Cake mat.
Finishing Touch—I pulled out a couple strands of thread from the Burlap Ribbon and tied them around the two layers, knotting them in the back.  I tied a separate double-thread bow and used a Glue Dot to attach it over the front of the thread.  I mounted the entire layer onto the Soft Sky card base with Dimensionals.

Two Cool—My second version shows the flowers in Powder Pink and changes the card to a vertical orientation.

I love the detailed layers of the flowers that are achieved without even having to line up everything!  Too Cool!
