Fabulous Florals - A Look Back at North Coast Creations February Release



I don't know about you, but I'm certainly looking forward to some warmer weather and Spring flowers!  The North Coast Creations February Release contains some beautiful floral images with sentiments that are perfect for your card making!

To create my card, I used the Hydrangea image from the NCC Floral Sentiments 6 stamp set, along with a sentiment from Floral Sentiments 3 and paired the image up with Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Daisy Chain Background Die/Beautiful Borders Die, Blooming Garden Paper Collection and butterflies from the Faith stamp set.



Before inking the flower, I placed Eclipse Tape over the largest leaf, then inked the stamp with Ranger Black Archival Ink.  I removed the tape and stamped onto White card stock, then used the Out of the Box Technique with Spellbinders Dies to die cut and emboss my image.  To add color, I used STAEDTLER Karat Watercolor Markers, adding additional color using a Waterbrush, then layered the stamped panel onto a Black circle.  I die cut the ODBD Daisy Chain Background Die from White card stock, then cut it to size so that it would fit my Rectangle Window.  I adhered the die cut panel using Scor-Tape, then adhered to a White panel with dimensionals, then to a Black panel and finally onto the card as shown.  To embellish, I added a Black die cut border using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, butterflies from the Faith stamp set were stamped in Black on scraps of the ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection, cut out and adhered to the card with Glue Dots.  To further embellish, I added Zva Creative Black Crystal Gems and a Black Grosgrain Ribbon.
