Revisiting Pure Florals Gerbera blog hop and giveaway

Hi and welcome to another fun non release Brand Ambassador blog hop at Uniko!
This month we are giving some love to my favourite stamp set and one of my first purchases from Uniko too, the Pure Florals - Gerbera. I've used it lots of times over the years but here is my latest creation.

I went for a watercoloured effect this time, with a little bit of fussy cutting.
The large outline gerbera was stamped on watercolour paper with Versamark and embossed with white EP. I added the stem by drawing a couple of thin lines with the fine tip of a Versamark pen and embossed with the same EP.
Using a small paintbrush, I added water to the petals and stem before adding colour with my Zig pure colour brushes. When dry, I added some details to the petals with the same pens.
Then I repeated the process around the edge of the flower, but with more water adding some Salty Ocean DI around the petals. Adding water further out than needed, allows the final area of colour to have a softer edge.
After deciding on how large to make my panel, I trimmed it to size, fussy cutting the petals where they over hung. The trimmed panel was then attached to a slightly larger one that I edged with Picked Raspberry DOx . I popped the whole lot up on pads over a white top fold A6 card I'd previously stamped with the sentiment from Birthday Sentiments in Altenew's Pure Graphite.

My second card uses the colours from this week's Color Throwdown, tricky colouring the blooms in white on white card and the theme at Seize the Birthday!

To start, I took a panel of white card and stamped and masked my design using Altenew's Silverstone ink. Then I used Copic markers to colour, using shades of grey to give the shape to the white blooms.
My sentiment strip was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white EP using elements from Pure Florals Peony.

If you are interested in checking out some more of my older gerbera designs, here are some from the archive, just click on the pic for more details on how I made them.




As I said it's one of my favourite stamp sets, outline or solid stamp, Copic marker or watercolour. It's such a versatile set and so pretty too.

There's even more gerbera love over on the rest of the Brand Ambassador's blogs, why don't you pop over there.
