Sending Smiles

Hi! I had a piece of corrugated cardboard from a cookie box. And because flowers makes everything pretty, I thought Botanical Orchid Flowers stamp set #874 will give a new and beautiful life to a recycled cardboard as well. Here's my take on that.

Flower from Sparkle N Sprinkle Botanical Orchid Flowers rubber stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink to the watercolor cardstock. Tonic Stamp Platform was a huge help to get a nice and grisp image to a textured paper. It allowed me to double stamp the image without any issue. I heat embossed the image with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. For coloring I used Nuvo Aqua Flow Brush Pens from Autumn Woodland and Spring Meadow sets. For the pink I diluted Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse water and got myself a nice and shimmery pink watercolor. I adhered some Berry Red Glitter with Sakura Glue Pen to inside of the flowers and also added Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops.

And now, a bit more about the background. As I said, I used a corrugated cardboard from cookie box. I brushed some white paint here and there. After paint was dried, I sponged some Peony Pink Embellishment Mousse on top of the painted parts, making sure I don't cover all the white. I added Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen some places and let it become tacky. Then I covered the glue with Radiant Gold Nuvo Gilding Flakes. For sparkle and texture I added Shaved Ice and Berry Red Glitter with Brushable Glue.

This cardboard had folds in it and I didn't want to glue them down. So I covered piece of cardstock with 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape (any width tape will work, I just had it on hand) and Berry Red Glitter. Cardboard was adhered to the center. Because flaps are not adhered down, the glitter will peek from the both ends. 

Flowers didn't show up on the background very well, so I made a circle vellum background to it with white scalloped circle frame. Sentiment is from same Botanical Orchid Flowers Stamp Set. It's stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I drew a straight line underneath the sentiment with Sakura Glue Pen and covered it with  Berry Red Glitter.
