I’ve been really messing around with my coloring mediums lately seeing how far I can push them in all kinds of different directions…And frankly, it has been exhausting.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs aI wanted today to make a card that had lovely coloring, but was also easy and quick.    With this card using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Patchwork stamp and die set, I think I was able to achieve this goal.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs dStep One:  Stamp out the the flower and the bee onto some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock using some archival black ink.  Here I am using a scrap of left over, thus the weird cut outs on the sides.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs hStep Two:  Using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a water brush, colored in the images.

Step 3:  Using the coordinating Patchwork dies, die cut the images out.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs eStep Three:  Using a stamping platform, stamp out the flower stamp onto some Pewter Soft Finish Cardstock, centering the first one, then over lapping it to both sides.  Stamp the flower five times.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs fStep Four:  Repeat the stamping process, this time with the bees.  Stamp the bee five times, allowing one image to have a clear central spot and the other four stamped off the page.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs gStep Five:  Die cut the the pewter paper with the Dashing Rectangles die set.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs iStep Six:  Using 6mm Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the pewter to an A2 card frame.

Step Seven:  Using 3mm Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the flower and the bee to the center flower and the centered bee.

Step Eight:  Using the Plant, Grow, Bloom sentiment stamp set, stamp the sentiment onto the paper using white pigment ink.
