introducing the balloon flower

This month’s Build-a-Flower is a large bloom and separate layered leaves along a Thanks duo of sentiments. You can get a bundle with two ink cube sets for 5% off!

 

no way is that one layer….

I won’t tell you to stop staring. Yah, go ahead. I do too. Every time. This. Is. A. One. Layer. Card.

One way I got such deep shadows was by combining ink cubes. I used Sea Breeze and Turquoise from Deep Blue Seas, and then for the darkest two layers, I used Nimbus and Dark Night from the Tranquility set. The leaves are done up in Rock Collection, and I omitted the background stamp for most of them.

All of the extra detail came from colored pencils and graphite pencil shading. It took about 5 minutes, and it was sooo worth it! You can click on the “P” in the upper left corner of any of these images to save them to Pinterest.

Ok – if you’re done drooling over this card (don’t worry, I still do every time I look at it!), go get your colored pencils and a graphite pencil. I’m gonna show you how to get that depth and dimension from this one-layer stunner.

Thank You!
