Introducing Canterbury Bells

Stamp, Stencil & Blend

My first project is pretty straightforward. I Inked up the BAF Canterbury Bells using Shades of Purple, then I stamped some of the smaller background flowers and diecut them all out. I prepped a few sentiment strips on Pale Gray cardstock. I stenciled some of the Wavy Grid stencil in Volcano Lake and then blended out in Lagoon to the edges of the card base. Then, I just had to adhere all of the diecut pieces.

All the Canterbury Bells

Today, I thought I’d show you three additional color combos to create a glorious garden of your own!

A Galaxy in a Flower

For my second card, I wanted to have some fun with the Artist Marker refills I just got. I wanted to play around with some Yupo paper and the ink to create a really cool background. And, I did! Then, I decided that it would look even cooler if I diecut the flower shape from the Yupo and add it to a simple background of Navy cardstock with Antique Gold splatter.

Thank You!

  10. Awesome tips for the different colourways thanks Nicole. Just love this done in the grey to give the illusion of the white flowers.

  11. I really love how you do your layering and how it looks natural and not like a stencil and seems like more natural art…
