May Your Day Blossom Card Flower by October Guest Designer Karen Baker


Flower Card by October Guest Designer Karen Baker | Garden Starter Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs #newtonsnook

Fall is my most favorite time of year! I love the richness of colors that can be seen everywhere. It's Karen from The Bald Dragonfly here and once again excited to be the Newton Nook's Guest Designer for the month of October. I am featuring the lovely Garden Starter Stamp Set on my card today. I started by masking and stamping the zinnia image onto Bristol Smooth cardstock with a mix of red and green dye ink. Then I loosely watercolored the images with Zig Markers, adding a lot of water towards the outside image to allow the ink to bleed. After the panel thoroughly dried, I restamped the zinnias with black ink, as well as the sentiment. After inking the edges, I affixed the panel onto some black cardstock, and then onto a kraft card base. and that finished off the card!

I'll see you next week for a birthday shaker card featuring this set, Garden Starter, as well as the coordinating dies from Garden Window Die Set.
