May All Your Wishes Come True with Gayatri

Hello and welcome back to W&W blog. This is Gayatri here today sharing a spring themed card. Lots of floral in rainbow colours. Bright colours and florals make me happy. Hope it does for you too.

I have used rock and roll technique to stamp the flowers and leaves from W&W's In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers stamp set. The inks I used are from Altenew and I stamped them using MISTI. I made sure I stamped enough flowers in all rainbow colours. I only used the solid stamps from the set. To add interest to the flowers, I used white pigment ink to stamp the centre details of the flowers. Used the coordinating cutaways to die cut them all out. 

Instead of using white or black card base, I chose a dark gray card base. Something different to what I normally pick. The flowers and leaves are clustered on top of the card base in rainbow order and adhered some using glue and others using foam adhesives. The sentiment is from Sentimental: Birthday stamp set from W&W which I white heat embossed on the bottom centre of the card. Some clear droplets to finish off the card.
Here are some closeups of the card.

I love the rock and roll technique because the shading with darker shade of the same colour on the outside gives depth to the rather flat coloured flowers and leaves. And the white flower centres add subtle detail. The use of dark gray card base gives contrast at the same time not too stark a contrast from say a white or black card base. Hope you got inspired by this card and give it a try. All supplies used to make this card are listed below.
