Dramatic Bloom

Today I am showcasing my Blossomed Numbers A4 Stamp #109 from AALLandCreate. You can find a list of our stockists HERE, simply scroll down.
I wanted a bold backdrop for my huge flower and opted for Black and Red, I adore using red in my creative pieces and today I brayered Ruby and Night over white card utnil I was happy with the depth of colour I had achieved.  I then machine stitched a piece of acetate to my background to give a different look to my piece.
I added four layers to my flower head to give dimension and texture, bending some of the petals a little to give movement to my design.  I also incorporated a rusty heart and some rusty tin wire to the centre of my flower for further texture and interest.
I also added a few splatters of red paint to add to the dramatic bold feel of this piece.
I added my sentiment to a strip of acetate which I stapled into place on my card and I also included some remnant rubs for further interest.
I loved creating this card and I can see I am going to be using this flower a great deal.
This is my A4 Stamp in all its glory, available now from our stockists.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

I do love that deep rich red Tracy, makes your layered flower stand out just as it should. The effect using the acetate is a genius way to create extra dimension. Such an inspired piece and truly stunning.

As soon as I saw this card I knew I had to jump over and see the details up close! Wow, the reds on the background give such depth and then the layered flower adds to it even more, creating such an interesting composition. Love the acetate, such a cool detail and then the icing on the cake, that rusty heart and wire, be still my heart! thank you for sharing your talents!
