Angel Trumpet Flowers

I love making 3 dimensional flower images.  This week for Heartfelt Creations I used the newly released Angel Trumpet Flower stamp set to create a bouquet on a card.


I create these images by stamping my base image and colouring it so I have an idea of where I can make the image denser and still show the lovely blooms.


Next, I stamp the image repeatedly to get enough parts to layer and use to fill holes.


I colour the images and cut them out. Since they are all original hand created elements, I choose the ones I like the best and save them for the top most layer. *grin* I don't colour every image the same. It's a real bugaboo when I like the base layer the best and then have difficulty duplicating it.



I begin assembly by filling in foliage using dimensional foam.I continue filling in the image until I have used most or all of the parts.  For this image, I used everything except one big blossom.


I assemble the card and voila!



I used the following copic markers for this image;


foliage; YG00, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97
blossoms; V9, V93, V95, V99
shadows; T0, T1, T2, T3, T4
