Marvellous – a tropical postcard

Marvellous-postcard-PS

In Australia it is Autumn, but in Brisbane where I live you would never know that the season has changed. It is as warm and sunny as ever but the flowers in my garden are disappearing and getting ready for the transition to Winter.

I thought this cheery card featuring frangipani’s might bring a bit of sunshine for your day. I love the quote it features – nature really is marvellous!

For this card I’m using one of my new stamps from Darkroom Door – Postcard Frame. It is fabulous to use, so versatile and just the right size for a tag or card front. Once it was stamped in red, I trimmed it out and layered on my card front with some patterned paper. Then came a bunch of frangipani flowers stamped with Momento ink and coloured with Copics. I’ve listed the colours I used down below to make it easy. Most of the flowers were coloured with the tip to tip Copic colouring method to give a bit of colour graduation. They were trimmed out and given a bit of dimension and glued down by just the centres so that the petals can stick up a little.

I hope you enjoyed this card. I’ll be sharing more on the Darkroom Door blog using the new stamps as will the rest of the design team – make sure you come and check us out!
