Heartfelt Blossoms in Dramatic Color

Hi Everyone,

I can’t seem to get enough of the awesome Heartfelt Blossoms stamp and die set by Concord & 9th. The floral border and the beautiful ‘Thinking of You” make for a stunning but easy card design and there are so many ways you can paint or color it.

Yesterday, I shared a watercolor version using a real fav of mine, the Karin Watercolor Brushmarkers. Today I have colored the flowers with Copic alcohol markers and used the matching die set.

One last thing before we jump into the ins and outs of this card design… don’t miss the winner to our Summer giveaway at the end of this post… here’s hoping it’s you!
