Happy Valentine !

Hello friends, Piyanki here with the last post for Mudra. First of all thanks to Varshitha to giving me the opportunity and letting me be a part of Mudra. I must say its a beautiful team to work with and the products are of very high quality and of great designs.

Today I am creating a very simple water color card with the newly launched gardenia dies. I used foam this time to die cut and shape the flowers. Now lets have a look at the card.

To create this card die cut several pieces of the Gardenia set from plain white foam. Using distress ink or Archival ink you can shape the flowers and the leaves. Once colored hold it against a hot press at mild settings you will see the petals curling on its own. Its a natural process and we can choose to either keep it that way or tweezers it all the more to get the desired shape. Pierce the center to fill in the center stamen.To create the background I have used distress oxide and splash of water to create a mild cyan background. Once the background is created place all the leaves and flowers that are shaped. Stamped the sentiment " I love you" with archival black ink on a white card stock and clip with a small wooden clip. Stick the same on the center tucking in to the flower bouquet center.To finish the card add some splashes of white gesso and cyan distress ink.
