North Coast Creations January Release - Floral Sentiments


This month North Coast Creations is releasing three beautiful vintage Floral Sets: Floral Sentiments, Floral Sentiments 2 and Floral Sentiments 3.  Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of two North Coast Creations $10 Gift Certificates good towards the purchase of NCC Stamps.  

My first card features the floral image from North Coast Creations Floral Sentiments 3 stamp set along with the sentiment from Floral Creations 2 and ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Border Die.


The floral image is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, then colored with STAEDTLER Kara Aquarell Watercolor Markers.  I stamped and colored the image multiple times, cut the blossoms will scissors and used the Paper Tole Technique to add dimension to the flowers.  I used a SAMJ to add the sentiment in Black Archival.  All panels are sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  To embellish I added Vintage Red Seam Binding and some Robin's Nest Dew Drops.
