Let’s start by admiring the beauty of the Craft-A-Flower Stargazer Lily die set from Altenew. This stunning set allows us to create lifelike stargazer lilies that will take center stage on our card. The intricate die cuts offer endless possibilities for customization and adding intricate details that bring the flowers to life.
Using small blending brushes and various shades of red ink from the Red Sunset Fresh Dye Inks I carefully blended colors onto the petals of the flowers. This technique brings depth and dimension, enhancing the realistic look of the stargazer lilies. Additionally, I used a fine point paintbrush to watercolor delicate dots and lines on the petals, mimicking the intricate patterns found in real flowers.
To create a visually stunning backdrop, I partially ink blended the background layer of the card using Dew Drops Fresh Dye Ink. This soft and subtle blend complements the vibrant hues of the stargazer lilies, allowing them to pop off the card.
To guide you through the process and showcase each step in detail, I’ve prepared a video tutorial. In the tutorial, I’ll walk you through the techniques of adding intricate details to the floral die cuts using blending brushes and a fine point paintbrush. You’ll see firsthand how to achieve realistic effects and create stunning floral designs. Be sure to watch the tutorial for a comprehensive visual guide that will empower you to recreate this card!
Adhere your die cuts to your Stampwheel mat or to a sticky mat to make ink blending easier!
