Grow, Bloom and Blossom Accordion for AALLandCreate

Hi everyone and welcome. Today I have an accordion card for you using my Quirky Blossoms Stamp Set and my A4 Layered Grunge Stamp from AALLandCreate. You can find a list of our stockists HERE, simply scroll down.

I am loving using green at the moment, the colour is so fresh and gives such a different look to the stamps. I began by brayering a layer of Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Distress Paints to the background of each panel and then dried each panel with a heat tool.
I added a touch of background stamping using my A4 Stamp, Layered Grunge. I stamped with Leaf Green Archival Ink, I love the tone on tone this gives and the numbers are so versatile on this stamp.
I stamped the Quirky Blossoms on the background of each panel using Black Archival Ink and then stamped the flower head once again to add dimension to my design. I stamped the flower heads onto a piece of card coloured with Distress Paints and stamped randomly with my A4 Stamp, this gives a touch more detail to the open areas of my flower head.
I twisted the flower head slightly so that the stamping below is still visible. I also added some Media Tape by Dina Wakley stamped with my sentiments from the same stamp set. I also added a button to the centre of each bloom for added interest.
I added more random background stamping using my A4 Stamp and Leaf Green Archival Ink, I love the detail in this stamp.
I had some edgeing from a watercolour pad on my desk so I also included these random pieces in my design.
I also added some delicate splatters of white paint to my design and added some wired leaves for added dimension.
I doodled some lines around each panel to draw the eye in towards my focal imagery.
I also included some stencilled panels on the back of my accordion using Autour de Mwa's stencil.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

This is such a beauty Tracy, you always get your colours just right, and have perfect little details like you paint spatters and printed tape. Have a lovely weekend, Sue xx
