Layered Hibiscus

This card came together quite easily, inspired by a sketch. Please scroll down to see it!

Card using the Layered Hibiscus stamp set by Hero Arts

I decided to go with the Hero Arts layering hibiscus stamp set. Using the base stamps of the flowers, I stamped them in the Soft Pool Hero Arts shadow ink, going from big to small and making sure to change the direction of the image slightly as I went. Then I inked up the middle layers using the Hero Arts Ombre ink pad in Pool to Navy. Here I went from dark to light. I added the stem of the flowers and never actually used the top layer stamps. The gaps I filled with the top layer of one of the leaves. Finally, I cut my panel with an very Elle pierced rectangle die.

Using a smaller on of the rectangle dies, I also cut a piece of vellum. My beautiful big scripty sentiment is from Create A Smile. I stamped this in Versafine Onyx black and clear heat embossed it. Using matching brads I have had in my stash forever, I fixed the vellum to my flower panel. Then I popped it on some craft foam before adhering it to my white card base.

I love the look of the vellum sentiment over the flowery pattern. If you go over it with your finger, you get to see all the details of the flowers beneath. The brads and the sentiment give a lovely shine.
