Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is written by Anne Harada. It is called Faux Pressed Flowers.

For my sample I started out by stamping a stem stamp from Crafty Secrets new Art Blooms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I was cut with the Out of the Box Technique and Classic Oval Nestabilities die. Next I masked the stem and stamped over the image with the note border from Artsy Banner in Antique Linen Distress Ink.

The image was colored with Copic Markers (G40, G82, G85, RV32, RV35) and the oval was sponged first with Antique Linen, then with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Prima Flowers were adhered over the stem, then the entire oval was embossed with ProvoCraft’s Textile Texture Embossing Folder. Next I sponged some more Vintage Photo Ink over the embossed part of the oval. Citrus Crush  Flower Soft was added in the center of my Prima Flowers.

The oval was adhered over another piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, that had been was cut and embossed with Beaded Oval Nestabilities die and sponged with Vintage Photo ink.

I created the card following the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge from last week. For the card base  a 4″ x 5″ piece of Circa 1934 Cosmo Cricket patterned paper was stitched to a 3/16″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Two 2″ x 2 7/8″ piece of Circa 1934 paper were stitched to 3/16″ bigger piece of white cardstock.  Two 2 7/8″ long strips of white cardstock were cut with the Faux Crochet Border Dienamics, adhered to the rectangle pieces before those were taped to the bigger layers.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock folded in half.  Recollections Rhinestone swirl was adhered to the upper right corner. Another piece of Solar White was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Fancy Tag dies. One of the sentiments from Art Blooms was stamped on it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

A pink silk bow was tied with the Bow Easy and topped with a Recollection Rhinestone brad. It was adhered to the upper right side of the sentiment panel to finish off the card front.
